The report gives results of field measurements made on 47 representative industrial boilers (75 boiler/fuel combinations) of 10,000-500,000 lb/hr of steam capacity throughout the Continental U.S. Pollutants measured were total nitrogen oxides (NOx), total particulates, total sulfur oxides, CO2, CO, and hydrocarbon. Measurements were made of emissions from coal, oil, and natural gas fuels and a variety of coal stoker and oil atomization methods. The effectiveness of reduced excess air, reduced load, air register readjustment, and off-stoichiometric firing in reducing NOx emissions is evaluated. The report covers the selection of the test boilers and discusses the emission measurements during the first phase of the program. The second phase will include results of more detailed long-term testing of representative current boilers.
