The photo above shows the MRSR91 burner.   The nozzle seems to be rectangular in shape.   The small pipe feeding the nozzle is the steam input.   The larger pipe is the oil feed controlled by a valve on the other side of the universal.  The louvers are part of a variable air damper.       Note the blow down valve partially visible in the upper right part of the photo.
