Low NOx Without Flue Gas Recirculation

30 PPM NOx title card

Low NOx, sub 30PPM, often means utilizing a burner with some means of Flue Gas Recirculation.  This technology effectively reduces NOx by using “cooled flue gases from the boiler stack as a source of dilution gas. They are very low in oxygen content and are composed of inert compounds like nitrogen, water vapor and carbon…
