Development of a low NOx burner with honeycomb catalyst Seo,Yong-Seok; Park, Byeong-Sik; Gang, Seong-Gyu;
A catalytic burner was studied which can be used as a heater operated in medium temperature. Noble metal catalysts (Pd/NiO) were used, which were supported on alumina wash coated honeycomb. The maximum heat-resisting temperature of the catalyst is about 900.deg. C. Combustion efficiency of the catalytic burner reached more than 99.5 % at the excess air ratio above 1.25.NOx emissions were lower than 1.0 ppm at all operation conditions. The operation condition for a stable catalytic combustion was obtained. It was dependent on the catalyst thickness. The 30 mm thick catalyst showed the widest stable catalytic combustion region. Stable catalytic combustion region of 30 mm thick catalyst was the operation condition of excess air ratio 1.25 - 1.75 and heat flux 7 - 14 kcal/h center dot cm.
