Decomposition rates and products were mea- sured in helium from to C for pyridine, benzonitrile, quino- line, and pyrrole; products were measured for six No. The types of physical and chemical processes that may be involved in the formation of NO in combustion are diagrammed in Fig.

This means that the control acts immediately, achieving the best possible nitrogen oxide reaction rate at all times in operation. Nenner and Schulz have recently measured the electron affinities of the N-heterocyclics including phenazines Ref.
They also studied residual oils containing various concentrations of natural fuel-N. When the additive was NO Ref. The first involves the oxidation of volatile nitrogen species during the initial stages of combustion. Kurd and coworkers of the pyrolysis mechanisms of pyridine and the picolines Ref.
This document is available to the public through the National Technical Informa- tion Service, Springfield, Virginia All of the studies that have involved model fuel nitrogen compounds indicate that, for the additives tested, the extent of conversion to NO is rela- tively independent of the type of compound employed, but decreases as the addi- tive concentration is increased.
Turner, Andrews, and Siegmund added a variety of nitrogen compounds to a distillate oil and obtained results similar to those of Martin and Berkau. On March 3,the D.
Low-temperature combustion or LTC technology. The gen- eral structures for these basic nitrogen compounds are shown in Fig. However, these do not appear to contribute information of importance to the high- temperature chemistry of interest in fuel NOX formation.
The conversion of fuel nitrogen to NO was from 20 to 70 percent and relatively indepen- dent of the nitrogen compound type. The formation of HCN in the flame front was so rapid that its maximum could have occurred between the measurement points and, therefore, have been greater than ppm.
The extrapolated half-life for pyridine is 50 microseconds at K. Because nitrogen is present only at low concentrations, it may be assumed that most of the properties of the flame are independent of the reactions of the nitrogen species.
This situation is relevant to the mechanism of fuel NOX formation because most heterocyclic fuel nitrogen compounds are substituted. Sternling and Wendt used a flame-sheet model to predict the extent to which fuel-N.
They cause catalyst poisoning and are involved in the formation of gums, lacquers, and precipitates. It has been established, however, that much of the nitrogen in heavy oils is in the form of heterocyclic organic compounds and the indications are that the same is true for coal nitrogen.
Nenner and Schulz have recently measured the electron affinities of the N-heterocyclics including phenazines Ref. The quantitative conversion of pyridine to HCN occurs at C. Since tropospheric ozone can absorb infrared radiation, this indirect effect of NOx is intensifying global warming.
Environmental Protection Agency, and approved for publication. Not only do endo- thermic reactions become more favored thermodynamically as the temperature in- creases, but the rates of reactions having large activation energies increase faster than those of reactions having smaller activation energies.
All of the studies that have involved model fuel nitrogen compounds indicate that, for the additives tested, the extent of conversion to NO is rela- tively independent of the type of compound employed, but decreases as the addi- tive concentration is increased.
Flagan's estimates are A. Alternatively, the water e. The major portion of the program was devoted to the experimental studies. The program was conducted under the following three tasks: Fuel NOx tends to dominate during the combustion of fuels, such as coal, which have a significant nitrogen content, particularly when burned in combustors designed to minimise thermal NOx.
These properties include temperature, flame speed, and the concentrations of most species that do not contain nitrogen. Although these conditions reduced the maximum flame temperature by degrees and the initial reactant concentrations by 23 percent, the maximum reaction rates for NO, HCN, CH.
In all three of these studies, the NO was measured suf- ficiently far downstream that the NO had reached its final exhaust value. efficiency of fuel nitrogen into NOx decre,ased, as shown in figure 1, as the fraction of shale oil (and fuel bound nitrogen) increased. It was also found that changing burner stoichiometry from fuel lean to rich achieved a substantial reduction in fuel nitrogen conversion rate, particularly in the case of.

Mar 31, · Fossil fuel combustion from cars and industry releases nitrogen oxides (NOx) into the atmosphere when burned.
NOx can be redeposited to land and water through rain and snow (wet deposition), or can settle out of the air in a process called dry deposition. In some regions (e.g. Chesapeake Bay Views: 8K.
plots, the trends of nitrogen conversion are: 1.
When oxygen content in the incinerator in creases, the conversion to NOx increases. 2. As incineration temperature increases, the conversion to NOx increases. 3. When residence time increases, the conver sion to NOx decreases. was controlled by water injection into the incinera tor chamber. The aim of this paper is to investigate patterns of NOx formation from fuel bound nitrogen when burning various types of fuel containing nitrogen and investigate possibilities to reduce NOx emissions caused by fuel bound nitrogen reducing conversion of the fuel bound nitrogen into nitrogen oxides during fuel combustion process.
