Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL INVESTIGATE AN INNOVATIVE, PROPRIETARY BURNER DESIGN FOR NITRIC OXIDES (NOX) FROM THE COMBUSTION OF FOSSIL FUELS. THE PROPOSED BURNER INCORPORATES, FOR THE FIRST TIME, TWO WELL-KNOWN METHODS OF NOX) REDUCTION IN A SINGLE DESIGN. IN PHASE I, A SCALE MODEL OF THIS BURNER WILL BE CONSTRUCTED FOR PULVERIZED COAL, AND TESTED IN AN EXISTING 3 MILLION BTU/HR COMBUSTION FACILITY. FLUE GAS SPECIES (CARBON DIOXIDE, CARBON MONOXIDE, SULFUR DIOXIDE,OXYGEN, TOTAL HYDROCARBONS, AND NOX) WILL BE MEASURED AND OBSERVATIONS WILL BE MADE FOR CRITICAL PARAMETERS OF THE BURNER DESIGN (FLAME LENGTH, SHAPE, INTENSITY, AND STABILITY). THE TECHNICAL MERITS AND LIMITATIONS OF THIS INNOVATIVE BURNER WILL BE DETERMINED.
