The two-volume report gives results of pilot-scale tests to evaluate combustion modifications for emission reduction and efficiency enhancement on petroleum process heaters. Objectives were to determine nitric oxide (NO) emission reductions, thermal efficiency changes, long-term performance, and cost of both natural- and forced-draft staged-combustion-air modifications. Forced-draft staged-combustion-air modifications had been shown to be the most promising combustion modification in previous pilot-scale tests. The test unit was a vertical, cylindrical, natural-draft crude heater, and the test fuels were natural gas, refinery gas, and a combination of No. 6 oil and refinery gas.
