The report gives guidelines for the operation, adjustment, and modification of refinery process heaters to achieve reduced emissions and increased efficiency. Combustion fundamentals are summarized and test data obtained in this contract from previous subscale and full-scale process heaters are reviewed. Recommended procedures for adjusting combustion on process heaters are given. Information appropriate to the design, operation, and maintenance of a staged-combustion air lance system for a process heater is presented. Cost effectiveness estimates for such a system are also given.
