Report Highlights

The market for global Low NOx Burner is expected to be USD XX billion at the end of the year 2015 and by the end of 2022 it is estimated to reach USDXX billion. The market is expected to grow at a rate of XX%. Low NOx burners operate on the principle of fuel re-burning technology. In this technique, a secondary fuel burner is placed in above the primary fuel burning complex. This secondary zone is divided in two parts i.e. reburn zone and burnout zone. In the primary zone during coal firing process the amount of coal used is 75-90% of the total heat requirement. The benefit of lower coal usage helps in lower production of NOx in the first stage. In the reburn the natural gas is inserted, which is about 1/4th of the total heat input. This addition of fuel creates an inducing condition for burning. In the burnout zone, the over fire air (OFA) is used to break down the NOx that is produced in the traditional wall fired cyclone burners to N2 compounds after incineration. During this entire process the fuel air mixture is carefully regulated at every step based on unique stoichiometric air ratio for each zone. This technique is also known as GR-LNB (Gas re-burning Low-NOx burner), since it is a mixture of two different activities.

The benefits of Low NOx burner is that it achieves better burning, lower peak flame temperature and longer flames. The major advantage of these type of burner is in the lower discharge of Nitrogen up to 30%. This is being driven by the need for reducing pollution from boilers. Boilers are extensively used in thermal power plants as well as chemical plants.    These burners extensively use air recirculation but to achieve desired impact, higher fuel gas pressure and a larger burner throat are essential. For burners using older technology moving to this newer technology requires extensive, time consuming and costly modifications in the furnace floor. Also several factors affect the emission of NOx from the burner i.e. fuel gas, air preheat, particulates, liquid droplets and air leakage. Due to these factors the emissions of NOx can substantially increase if left uncontrolled. Another restraint is that even though the burner is able to reduce the NOx output the generation of CO2 and SO2 increases by following this technique. Furthermore due to the use of lesser fuel the output and efficiency of the boiler gets reduced.

Low NOx burners are consists of several major components like, air actuators, CCV nozzles, flow sensors, air distribution control, and coal control. This burner has actuators for primary secondary and tertiary flow control. At each of these stages, flow sensors and air distribution controller for accurately measuring the air flow. Coal burner is the basic component which is same as traditional burners. Low NOx burners can be divided into many types including oil, coal or gas based low NOX burner.

The market has also been geographically segmented. All the major regions including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa are analyzed in this report. Of these regions, the North America has in the past few years provided the largest demand. However Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the demand table during the study period. Due to enhanced focus on emissions this region is expected to follow the global trend of moving towards less polluting burners.

The major companies involved in the low Nox burner market are, Maxon Corporation, Alzeta Corporation, Babcock & Wilcox (B&W), Parker Boiler, R.F MacDonald Co., S. T. Johnson Company etc. The major producers are continuously striving to improve the existing design and achieve lower emissions at lesser cost.
