The Lanemark series of KS burners is designed for a range of petrochemical applications. These include hydrocarbon processing for plants producing hydrogen, methanol, ammonia, ethylene, Ethylene Dichloride (EDC), Continuous Catalytic Reformers / Platformer (CCR), vacuum heaters, process oil heaters and Styrene Monomer plants.
All feature low excess air, low emissions and compact flame shapes with a high degree of stability. They offer fuel and air staging as well as flue gas recirculation (external and internal) while their versatile design gains from a choice of forced or induced draught configurations with round or flat flame. Burner ignition can be by portable spark igniter, portable gas pilot, manual gas pilot or automatic gas pilot all to suit end user operating philosophy and safety requirements.
DATA SHEET IN PREPARATION
With an output range of between 0.3 MW and 5 MW, the forced or natural draught Lanemark KS 1000 burner series are seen as the ‘ultimate’ low NOx burners, combining fuel and air staging with internal flue gas recirculation. The design produces typically 40% lower NOx emissions than conventional ‘low NOx’ burner alternatives as well as low CO and UHC emissions.
Vertical Up, horizontal or vertical down firing variants can be specified with a choice of single, dual or triple gas operations. Fuel gas options include natural, refinery or purge gas together with hydrogen or propane alongside a number of other options. A round flame profile and high turndown are further characteristics as are low noise levels of <78 dB(A).
The KS 1000 series functions with low excess air throughout the burner operating range, but can tolerate high excess air during start-up – with automatic or manual gas pilot burners, or portable gas pilot/direct spark ignition options available. Dual and triple gas burner manifold arrangements can also be specified where dissimilar fuel gases are to be burnt.
Monitoring can be maintained via single or multiple flame viewing / ignition ports and with flame scanner port(s) a further option.
