A utility boiler field test program was conducted. The objectives were to determine new or improved NO(x) emission factors by fossil fuel type and boiler design, and to assess the scope of applicability of combustion modification techniques for controlling NO(x) emissions from such installations. A statistically designed test program was conducted with the cooperation of utility owner-operators. The objective was to make the boilers selected a reasonable 'micro-sample' of the U.S. boiler population. The NO2 portion of the total NO(x) content in the flue gas was found to average five percent or less. Major combustion operating parameters investigated included the variation of boiler load, level of excess air, firing pattern (staged, 'off-stoichiometric', or 'biased firing'), flue gas recirculation, burner tilt, and air preheat temperature. Modification of combustion operating conditions offers good promise for the reduction of NO(x) emissions from utility boilers.
