The report gives results of full scale tests to evaluate combustion modifications for emission control and efficiency enhancement on petroleum process heaters. Test objectives were to determine NOx emission reductions, thermal efficiency changes, long-term performance, and cost of a staged combustion air modification (the most promising combustion modification in pilot scale tests). The test unit was a vertical, cylindrical, natural-draft crude-oil heater; test fuels were natural gas, refinery gas, and a combination of No. 6 oil and refinery gas.
