How to use Flow Simulation to Maximize Industrial Burner Performance
Industrial operations in developed countries are facing ever more stringent requirements for low NO, CO, and particulate emissions. Additionally, increased fuel costs and downward price pressure on consumer products mean that process plants must do more with less, while ensuring maximum reliability in plant equipment and a minimum amount of down-time. This combination of challenges has a particularly burdensome impact on industrial burner manufacturers, who not only have to guarantee emission levels, but are also called upon to make sure these new and entirely different low emission burners provide the same thermal conditions as the older models. These challenges have resulted in low emissions and high heat output in modern high end burners. The highest performing models are carefully designed using engineering simulation tools.
