Optimization and Tuning
EES and STEP Combustion Group provide an array of optimization and tuning services for:
- Improved heat rate (excess O2, CO and LOI reduction)
- Reduced NOx emissions
- Reduced ammonia slip
- Improved low load performance
For multi-burner furnaces we also recommend air-fuel balancing to improve heat rate and reliability while decreasing pollutant emissions.
Air and Fuel Balancing
As a complement to our optimization services, we offer fuel-air balancing for multi-burner applications.
Combustion issues are often a result of poor burner to burner fuel-air balancing or maldistributions within individual burners. EES has expertise with fuel-air measurement and balancing with a wide range of fuels including: Coal, Oil, Gas, and Biomass. EES’ STEP Combustion Group also offers aero and fluid dynamic expertise, modeling (computational and physical) and experience with all burner manufacturers including Alstom-Combustion Engineering, Doosan, Foster Wheeler, B&W, Riley, Babcock Power as well as after-market burners.
