Boiler Combustion Optimization and NOx Reduction

Announcements With ever increasing pressure on utilities to reduce emissions from coal-fired power plants, and the expense of post-combustion pollution control equipment, many operators are looking to optimize combustion inside the boiler.

A session titled Boiler Combustion Optimization and NOx Reduction will be held at the Electric Power Expo on April 30, 2007 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Chicago, IL

Sponsor CFD Review

Boiler optimization results in maximizing thermal transfer to the water wall and convection boiler tubes while minimizing NOx and CO production. Many factors come into play, including burner location, the use of swirl, balancing local air to fuel ratios (enthalpy balance), minimizing operating O2, and the use and placement of overfire air systems, which controls the stoichiometry distribution in the furnace.

Chemistry, Physics, field experience, simulation analysis tools, and the use of NO, CO, and O2 diagnostic measurements at the economizer outlet will be covered.
