  • Combustion optimization by fast excess air control – Case Study

    Combustion is the conversion of primary chemical energy contained in fuels into heat through the process of oxidation at high temperatures. The oxygen required for the combustion is supplied as part of the combustion air that is fed to the process. In ideal (stoichiometric) combustion the amount of oxygen supplied to the process is just sufficient to burn all combustibles completely. In real ...

  • New Green Methodology for Measuring Total Organic Carbon (TOC) — Supercritical Water Oxidation (SCWO)

    Analyzing the total organic carbon (TOC) content of industrial wastewater, process influent and effluent water, and environmental water samples can be very challenging. These aggressive sample matrices often clog or damage TOC analyzers that use the combustion method. This can result in expensive preventive maintenance and excessive non-regenerative waste. To address these critical issues, GE ...

  • The Other Side of Zirconium Oxide case study

    Regular Fuel Efficiency Applications Separate Oxygen and Combustibles Sensors In standard flue gas applications for Thermox analyzers, the user generally tries to extract the maximum energy from the fuel and transfers as much of that energy as possible to the process. These applications require the process to be operated as efficiently as possible by keeping both oxygen (excess air) and ...

  • Insitu analysis of ammonia slip and water vapor using a tunable diode laser for SCR/SNCR optimization and boiler tube surveillance in power plants

    ABSTRACT Environmental Regulations driven by the 1990 Clean Air Act require Power Plants to reduce NOx emissions. SCR's and SNCR's reduce NOx emission by injecting ammonia into the combustion flue gas. which ideally reacts with the NOx to form H?0 and Nj. The efficiency of the SCR SNCR is determined by monitoring the outlet for excess NH3. referred to as NH3 slip. The flue gas sample ...
