  • Patent number: 5510092
    Abstract: In a combined SCR-SNCR process for reducing the NO content of a stream of combustion products by NH.sub.3, SCR is employed for primary NO reduction. NH.sub.3 is injected into the SNCR zone only when the NO content of the SCR effluent exceeds a preselected design maximum value.
    Type: Grant

    Date of Patent: April 23, 1996
    Assignee: Applied Utility Systems, Inc.
    Inventors: Mansour N. Mansour, Bruce C. Sudduth
  • Patent number: 4618323
    Abstract: A method and burner tip for suppressing the production of oxides of nitrogen when burning a fuel in a combustion chamber containing a flame zone are described. The burner tip comprises at least one port for introducing fuel into the combustion zone and at least one port for introducing a control gas into the combustion zone, where both the fuel and control gas are introduced substantially perpendicular to the direction of introduction of combustion gas into the combustion zone. The ports are laterally spaced apart from each other. The control gas is used for controlled localized quenching of the flame zone and/or for controlled atomization of the fuel in the case of the liquid fuel to reduce the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx). By proper selection of the size and location of the fuel and control gas ports, and the quantity and velocity of the fuel and control gas introduced into the combustion zone, a stable flame with minimal emission of oxides of nitrogen can be obtained.
