The report describes combustion modification methods that are available to boiler manufacturers for controlling air pollutant emissions from industrial size fossil-fuel-fired steam boilers. The methods discussed include reduction of excess air, staged combustion, air register adjustment, fuel oil atomization, combustion air temperature adjustment, flue gas recirculation, burner heat release rate, fuel type, burner tune-up, and ammonia injection. The report summarizes results of tests on specific industrial boilers and discusses the applicability of combustion modifications. Specific guidelines for boiler design to achieve specified emission levels could not be given because of the variability in emissions and responsiveness to control among the various industrial boiler types.
