  • NOx Control on a Budget

    National, regional and local regulations to reduce NOx emissions have prompted the development and implementation of a number of NOx control technologies – from selective catalytic reduction and low-NOx burners to overfire air and flue gas recirculation. Induced flue gas recirculation (IFGR), a design derivative of conventional forced flue gas recirculation, has demonstrated NOx reductions as ...

  • Saving waste in the boiler house

    Burner technology has improved greatly in recent years. Older Burners had a series of cams and levers that were calibrated to provide specific amounts of air for a particular rate of firing. Being mechanical items, these wore and sometimes required calibration. They, therefore, had to be regularly serviced and calibrated. Generally, new burners use frequency controlled motors and cams to open air ...

  • Pollution reduction from flares by swirl vanes in a cross-flow

    The effect of swirl on the performance of a flare stack was experimentally investigated as a passive control technique for combustion in a cross-flow. The burner comprised a circular fuel nozzle with a co-annular airflow, swirled by a concentric vane swirler, with a crosswind of air at the flare tip. It was found that the flames issuing from swirl-vane flare tip were shorter and had wider flame ...
