These variables include fuel composition, air preheat temperature, combustion air moisture content, burner intensity, percent of design load, and NOx control technologies.This improved calculation tool allows users more accurately and cost-effectively to predict NOx emissions. In doing so, they may avoid costly monitoring methods.Backgro...
