In this paper the stabilizing of non- premixed turbulent flame with a porous medium is studied experimentally. One of the approaches taken to stabilize the flame in high thermal capacity is the usage of the porous medium on the burner. A non-premixed burner with natural gas fuel is used. The First, tests are carried out for the conventional burner and then for the combined burner with the carbide ceramics porous medium. In the conventional burner effects of fuel and air velocity and equivalence ratio on flame length, flame lift off and the stability limit are discussed. Porous silicon carbide ceramics with pore densities of 10ppi, 20ppi and 30ppi are used in the combined burner. Experiments are done at 5cm, 10cm and 15cm distances of porous medium from the burner. The viewed flames in the combined burner are grouped into four regimes. In conventional burner flame in a rich mixture is formed and flame length raise with increasing equivalence ratio. The results show that make less in pore density of the medium increases the possibility of flame formation in the porous medium. Moreover it is observed the flame is formed in the porous medium in an average equivalence ratio of φ=0.63, which is almost the equivalence ratio which a immersed flame is formed in a premixed porous burne.
