Since 1971, B&W has sold low NOx combustion systems for more than 120,000 MW of generating capacity in both new and retrofit boiler applications. Our low NOx burner technology has been successfully applied to a broad range of B&W and non-B&W units with varying fuel characteristics and boiler arrangements. We also pioneered the development and application of NOx ports and air staging for reducing NOx emissions. Combined with our other technologies, such as burners and selective catalytic reduction systems, overfire air systems are part of an overall NOx reduction strategy. B&W also offers new and replacement FPS gas, oil and dual fuel igniters, igniter auxiliary equipment, optical and fiber optic flame scanners and control systems for wall-fired and corner-fired boiler applications.
Our combustion solutions include:
B&W engineers designed the AireJet burner with an innovative burner structure — a burner built around a center jet of air, encircled by the fuel stream, and then wrapped in additional combustion air
