The paper gives results of an evaluation of a 0.6 MW precombustion chamber burner/package boiler simulator, designed for in-furnace NOx control and high combustion efficiency, for high nitrogen content fuel combustion/waste incineration application. The 250-750 ms residence time precombustion chamber burner, using air staging and in-furnace natural gas reburning, yields up to four stoichiometric zones. Subsequently, an examination of the incineration characteristics of a nitrogenated pesticide, containing dinoseb in an organic solvent, was conducted on the low NOx facility. NO emissions without in-furnace controls were reduced from 4400 to <150 ppm with controls.
