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.


The air-staged low NOx Lanemark KS 8000 series burners operates via a forced draught configuration with up, horizontal and down firing variants. The oil only, or oil and gas combined, firing arrangements can deliver outputs of between 0.5 MW and 10 MW at low noise levels of <78 dB(A).

The burners are noted for their low excess air throughout the operating range but will tolerate high excess air during start-up – ignition can be via either automatic or manual gas pilot burners.

Either Liquid fuel only (heavy fuel, bunker C with steam atomisation or No. 6 oil, diesel oil, gas oil with air atomisation) or combination or dual fuel with fuel gases (natural gas, refinery gas or propane) can be used, with low CO, UHC and particulate emissions also achieved alongside low NOx. The latter can be further reduced when oil firing with the addition of steam injection nozzles.

High turndown and round flame profiles are further characteristics of the two units in the range – the KS 8300 (oil only firing) and KS 8400 (combination oil and gas firing) variants. In all cases, a choice of single or multiple flame viewing ports and flame scanner ports can also be selected.
