1.4 Natural Gas Combustion - US EPA

from natural gas-fired boilers are flue gas recirculation (FGR) and low NOx burners. In an FGR system, a portion of the flue gas is recycled from the stack to the burner windbox. Upon entering the windbox, the recirculated gas is mixed with combustion air prior to being fed to the burner. The recycled flue gas

Improve Your Boilers Combustion Efficiency

Flue Gas Analyzers The percentage of oxygen in the flue gas can be measured by inexpensive gas-absorbing test kits. More expensive (ranging in cost from $500 to $1,000) hand-held, computer-based analyzers display percent oxygen, stack gas temperature, and boiler efficiency. They are a

O2 Analyzer | Nova Gas | Portable Oxygen Analyzer

Oxygen (O2) analysis is required in many of the industries and applications that are served by Nova Analytical Systems. The intent of the analysis is sometimes to verify that there is low O2 content in a process. However, we can also provide O2 analyzers for combustion air O2 enrichment, flue gas analysis, oxygen deficiency analysis, and many more.

CO 2 concentration in the flue gas; with oil combustion is indicated below: Example - Oil Combustion and Heat Loss in the Flue Gas. If. the temperature difference between the flue gas leaving a boiler and the ambient supply temperature is 300 o C, and; the carbon dioxide measured in the flue gas is 10% - then, from the diagram above. the flue

Flue Gas & Emissions Analyzers | Nova Gas | Portable

Combinations of the above gas measurement options are usually also purchased with oxygen measurement. This allows the user to normalize the other gas readings to oxygen. That is, they allow the other gas readings to be corrected by the customer to a reference oxygen content. Our continuous flue gas analyzers are sturdy and weather-proof.

Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

Symptoms: Aggressive localized boiler tube corrosion and loss of tube wall.Pits can act as stress-concentration sites which can be initiation points for stress-related corrosion mechanisms. Causes: Oxygen pitting occurs with the presence of excessive oxygen in boiler water.It can occur during operation as a result of in-leakage of air at pumps, or failure in operation of preboiler water

Flue-gas desulfurization - Wikipedia

For a typical coal-fired power station, flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) may remove 90 percent or more of the SO 2 in the flue gases. History. Methods of removing sulfur dioxide from boiler and furnace exhaust gases have been studied for over 150 years. Early ideas for flue gas desulfurization were established in England around 1850.
