Better combustion with versatile burners

Clearly, different products require different temperature profiles. Using SMS-Flame® burners, you can adapt the combustion parameters to various process conditions.

Here, a similar temperature measurement taken in flameless mode reveals a much flatter curve, with the combustion energy released more evenly. This is a very effective way of cutting thermal NOx formation.

Shown here is a comparison between the mole fraction of NOx in flame mode (red curve) versus NOx when firing in flameless mode (blue curve). The shape and temperature control of the flame help reduce overall emissions.
