Low Emissions Process Heat Equipment

Industries have been using process heat equipment for centuries in manufacturing. While the products generated by process heat equipment benefit society greatly, the equipment also generates EPA controlled emissions.

Two of the most common emissions generated during combustion are NOx and CO. NOx compounds are formed during the combustion of fossil fuel and are worst at high temperatures. CO is formed from a partial oxidization of carbon compounds; it is formed at air to fuel ratios which are either too rich or too lean. Both of these compounds are produced from fossil fuel fired process heating equipment, such as:  process air heaters, dryers, ovens, boilers, dehydrators, furnaces, etc.

Because of their ill effects, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates NOx and CO produced by manufacturing facilities.  In order to comply with the EPA’s standards, and be socially responsible, most companies implement emissions programs; these companies continually focus efforts on ways to reduce their emissions levels, while improving their bottom line.

Stelter & Brinck partners with many manufacturers in order to help them meet their emission goals; the following Stelter & Brinck products aid companies with their emissions management:

  1. Thermal & Catalytic Oxidizers, Afterburners- Designed for emission abatement, S&B oxidizers are EPA destruction efficiency compliance guaranteed.
  2. New/ Replacement Low-Emission Equipment- Stelter & Brinck can design & manufacture new equipment that will meet the best available technology for low emissions. We can also install, start-up, and maintain your new S&B systems.
  3. Stelter & Brinck Heat Recovery Systems- For each 1 million BTU S&B saves you, your carbon footprint will be reduced by the annual energy use of 10 homes or 2 cars!
  4. Combustion Services- S&B’s services reduce emissions by ensuring proper fuel/air ratio and efficient flame quality. Our reports also cover very detailed technical information on each piece of your equipment, which enables us to detect performance fluctuations early.
