Reduction of Nitrogen Oxides from Fuel Nitrogen in New Fuelling System
Young-Nam Chun, Jae-Ou Chae*
The effects of NOx reduction by advanced fuel staging in a small scale combustor (6.6 kWT) have been investigated using propane gas flames laden with ammonia as fuel-nitrogen. The variables which had the greatest influence on NOx reduction were temperature, reducing stoichiometry (relate to main combustion zone stoichiometry, air fraction and reburning fuel fraction) and residence time of reducing zone. NOx reduction was best at the reburning zone temperature of above 1,000 ℃ and reburning zone stoichiometry was 0.85. In terms of residence time of the reburning zone, NOx reduction was effective when burnout air was injected at the point where the reburning zone had been already established. In the advanced fuel staging NOx reduction was relatively large at the burning of higher Fuel-N concentration in the fuel. Under optimum reburning conditions, fuel nitrogen content had a relatively minor impact on reburning efficiency.
