Let’s first talk about, what are Regen Burners and Features Of Low Nox Regenerative Burners?
A regen burner is a combustion heating system that is basically designed for extremely high recovery of exhaust heat from an industrial furnace – The combustion air can be preheated to a temperature very close to the process temperature with the help of regenerator or regen technology. There are analyses regarding Regen burners that have found 25-30% reduction in heating fuel consumption in a steel billet Reheating Furnace after ordinary burners with recuperators were replaced by Low NOx Regenerative Burners.
Regen burners usually operate in pairs and these Low NOx Regenerative Burners work on the principle of short-term heat storage using ceramic heat regenerators. Regen Burners recover between 85- 90% of the heat from the furnace waste gases; hence, the incoming combustion air can be preheated to very high temperatures of up to 10°- 150°C below the furnace operating temperature. The application temperatures swing from 800 up to 1500°C and the fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 60%.
Features Of Low Nox Regenerative Burners
Coming to the features of Low NOx Regenerative Burners offered by Encon Thermal Engineers, some of them have been mentioned below:
1. Reduction of NOx emissions
Encon Thermal Engineers offer Low NOx emission type Regen Burners which is why the total NOx emissions can be reduced along with the reduction of exhaust gas and thus saving energy as well.
2.Energy and cost savings
35-50% of the energy can be saved through the adoption of regenerative burner system. Although it is dependent on the furnace temperature, air ratio, and operating patterns of the installed unit.
3. Uniformity of furnace temperature distribution
Uniform distribution of furnace temperature has been achieved because of the luminous flame effect by high-temperature preheated air combustion and the furnace air agitation effect by alternating combustion, so that improvement in product quality and time and energy saving effects can be achieved.
4. Reduction of CO2 emission
By adopting Regen burner system, CO2 emissions can also be reduced effectively which will lead to a great reduction in use of fuel. The fuel conversion from oil to natural gas burner leads to more reduction in CO2 emissions because CO2 output per unit heat value becomes less.
Encon Thermal Engineers has developed a range of Low NOx Regenerative Burners in association with Swiss Melting Technologies S.A.
Low NOx Regenerative Burner system has been specifically adopted and popularized in nearly high temperature furnaces, which also includes reheating furnaces for rolling, forging furnaces, heat treatment furnaces, melting furnaces, baking furnaces, as a great means for saving cost energy and reducing CO2 emission.
Low NOx Regenerative burner provided by us can be used with various Gaseous fuels like LPG, Natural Gas, Producer Gas, Coke Oven Gas, Blast Furnace Gas, etc. and liquid fuels like Diesel, LDO, HFO, FO, pyrolysis oil, etc. We also offer Multiple fuel option in the same Regen burner.
Encon Thermal Engineers work towards customer satisfaction and we assure to provide you with excellent products and services.
