The report gives results of tests on two large-scale staged-mixing (SM) burners developed by L and L Steinmuller of West Germany. One objective was to optimize their performance for low-NOx emissions, high efficiency, and combined NOx/SO2 control with sorbent injection. The experimental effort included three coals and three sorbents. (The expanded use of coal has focused attention on the control of NOx and SO2 emissions from pulverized coal combustion. Staged combustion for NOx control and calcium-based sorbent injection into furnace combustion chambers for SO2 control have been evaluated.) NOx emissions from the SM and SM-II burners were sensitive to both the degree of staging and excess air levels. The trends of SO2 capture for all three fuels with the SM-II burner were similar.
