NO(x) emissions from radiant gas burners

Barnes, F.J., Bromly, J.H., Edwards, T.J. and Mandyczewsky, R. (1988) NO(x) emissions from radiant gas burners. Journal of the Institute of Energy, 61 (449). pp. 184-188.


The generation of NO(x) by a modified domestic radiant gas burner was found to depend mainly on the level of primary aeration, and to a lesser extent on the gas input rate and tile surface temperature. Significant reductions in NO(x) emission from radiant burners were achieved by using excess air in the primary mixture. Further tests with an experimental radiant burner, in which combustion air was selectively replaced by an oxygen/argon mixture, indicated that NO(x) formation in conditions of high primary aeration was mainly by the prompt mechanism.
