Three dimensional measurements of velocity and gas flux measurements of O2, CO2 flux near burner of oil furnace were demonstrated to show a flame holding mechanism and fluctuation characteristics. The use of convective flux in flame was not accurate but found to be applicable in whole combustion region in a furnace. Two pairs of recirculating flow region rotated in swirl direction due to the slit flow and its timescale was about 5-10 msec. The timescale of turbulence and CO, CO2 gas variation were compared in order to show the flame holding mechanism in a transparent evaporating region. The comparison results show that the timescale of turbulence and chemical species fluctuation were the same order.
