OUR TECHNOLOGY

 

Aecometric’s core technology is designing of high intensity burners. The burner is designed as a mixing chamber. Fuel is provided to the burner via a centrally located gun. A swirling motion is induced to combustion air by the burner’s volute vanes located at the base of the combustor. The swirling air creates a vortex in the combustor.  That generates a low-pressure region in the centre of the combustor, which induces a reverse flow of combustion products. The collision of the forward moving combustion air and the backward moving combustion products, coupled with the large amount of swirl, generates a high degree of mixing within the combustor. This improved mixing has the benefits of near perfect combustion and higher flame temperatures.

 

This ensures that the Aecometric burner will perform at the highest standard, with a compact flame with no impingement on the refractory, guaranteeing a longer refractory life. Aecometric High Intensity Burners have an extremely short and well-defined flame. The flame is extremely stable and will not be affected even by a 60 ft/s cross flow impinging directly on it.

 

Furthermore, this mix ensures that the strictest of emissions standards are met, with the highest of fuel efficiency, allowing the end-user to maximize their return with no additional cost. Aecometric High Intensity Burners have met emission requirements as low as 0.02 lb/MMBTU CO coupled with 0.045 lb/MMBTU NOx. 47 years of proven combustion technology makes the Aecometric High Intensity Burner a trusted name for many good reasons.
