Tests with a multifuel combustion facility were conducted in order to develop NOx control techniques for oil-fired package boilers. Both single burner retrofits and suggestions for factory redesign are sought to control emissions from commercial and industrial package boilers. Since NOx emissions are more readily controlled by flame modifications than by processing stack gases, three control methods were explored: (1) flue gas recirculation, (2) staged combustion, and (3) burner modifications. Simple burner modifications to atomization air pressure or primary/secondary air ratio can result in 20% reductions in NO. NO reductions of 45% without increased soot were available with FGR. Staged combustion was limited as an NOx control technique in this combustor due to direct tradeoff in smoke.
