Evaluation and demonstration of low-NOx burner systems for TEOR steam generators : final report--field evaluation of commercial prototype burner by G. C England( Book )
3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
The goals of this program were to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate a low-NO[subscript x] burner for crude-oil-fired steam generators used for thermally enhanced oil recovery (TEOR). The burner designed and demonstrated under this program was developed from design criteria established in bench- and pilot-scale experiments. This report describes the results of the final phase of the program in which the full-scale (16 MW[subscript t]) commercial prototype burner was successfully iinstalled and tested in the Kern County, CA, oil fields on a conventional TEOR steam generator. A 30-day continuous monitoring test demonstrated the capability of the burner to continuously maintain NO[subscript x] emissions of 70 ppm with CO emissions below 50 ppm and particulate emissions below 0.23 g/dscm. Detailed emission measurements also showed negligible emissions of organic species, including EPA priority pollutants. Thermal efficiency of the steam generator was similar to that prior to the low-NO[subscript x] burner retro fit and was within the normal range for conventional steam generators. The mechanical performance of all major burner components was satisfactory
Prototype evaluation of commercial second generation low-NOx burner performance and sulfur dioxide capture potential ( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
The expanded use of coal for utility and industrial boiler applications has focused attention on the control of NO[subscript x] and SO₂ emissions from pulverized coal combustion. Various EPA programs have demonstrated the principle of staged combustion as a means of controlling NO[subscript x] emissions. Other programs are evaluating the potential for SO₂ control with the injection of calcium-based sorbents into furnace combustion chambers. Under this program, Steinmuller Staged Mixing (SM) burners were tested in EPA's Large Watertube Simulator (LWS) test facility. The objectives of the program were to provide a comparative evaluation of the SM burner in the LWS with field operation and to optimize its performance for low NO[subscript x] emissions, high efficiency, and combined NO[subscript x]/SO₂ control with sorbent injection. The experimental effort included evaluating two SM burners in the LWS using three coals and three sorbents. The evaluation of the two burners, the Weiher SM burner currently in operation in a 700 MW boiler in West Germany and a second generation SM burner, included characterization of burner performance and NO[subscript x] emissions and SO₂ reduction with sorbent injection through burner passages. The impact of the NO[subscript x] and SO₂ control techniques on ash characteristics (including slagging and fouling behavior, and SO₂/SO₃ speciation) was also evaluated

Two-dimensional modeling of fossil-fueled power plant behavior when using CO₂-O₂ or CO₂- H₂O-O₂ mixtures, instead of air, to support combustion by Wolfgang Richter( Book )
2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Supersonic Combustion of Liquid Kerosene by R Payne( Book )
3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This study first considers the cycle performance of scramjet engines up to Mach 14 including mixing losses. It was shown that optimum combustion efficiencies lie in the range 70 to 90%. Experimental and theoretical studies of kerosene injection and combustion in a supersonic airstream to 6000K were carried out. A combustion driven tailored interface shock tunnel was used for the experimental work with pressure and optical instrumentation. Satisfactory agreement was obtained between theory and experiment
Modeling study of burner and furnace performance for oxygen enriched combustion systems by Wolfgang Richter( Book )

Evaluation of utility boiler radiant furnace resident time/temperature characteristics field tests and heat transfer modeling ( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report describes an investigation of the adequacy of a modeling approach in predicting the thermal environment and flow field of pulverized-coal-fired utility boilers. Two 420 MW[subscript 3] coal-fired boilers were evaluated: a single-wall-fired unit and a tangentially fired unit, representing the two commonest boilers in the U.S. Extensive field measurements were conducted on each unit to determine detailed temperature, heat flux, gas species composition, and flow field data for a range of operating conditions. Separate modeling approaches were used to predict boiler thermal performance and flow characteristics. A three-dimensional zone method of analysis was used to predict local and overall heat transfer, temperature profiles, and fuel burnout. Such predictive tools provide a sophisticated treatment of radiative heat transfer, but are decoupled from the furnace flow field. This input to the heat transfer code was obtained from detailed measurements in reduced scale isothermal physical flow models of the two boilers. Comparisons between model predictions and the detailed field measurement data have demonstrated the viability of this approach in predicting furnace performance, and in extrapolating limited available data to alternate operating conditions. Overall thermal performance can, in general, be accurately predicted; however, the analysis has shown that the correct quantitative prediction of local temperatures and other properties requires anaccuratee specification of inhomogeneities in boilerinputu conditions, in the boiler flow field, and in the local distribution of wall ash deposits
