Von Roll Inova’s innovative new SNCR process is up to the task. This new approach takes the well known Selective non-catalytic reduction process to new heights (lows). By monitoring process conditions very closely and implementing a quick-reacting, highly precise mechanical system for distribution of the reducing agent, emissions can be limited to levels comparable to those demonstrated by SCR. Von Roll Inova’s DyNOR™ (Dynamic NOx Reduction) process takes advantage of fast and precise infrared pyrometer measurements in the exact locations where reagent is needed. Coupled with a patented distribution system, reagent injection is continuously directed to the optimal location in the furnace. The system is capable of responding to changes in a matter of seconds and thus can correct for uneven temperature profiles which are typical in combustion systems with inhomogeneous waste fuel such as MSW. Good combustion control can limit uncontrolled NOx emissions to less than 200 ppmv and forms the platform upon which secondary NOx reduction measures should build. The conventional Von Roll Inova SNCR process limits NOx emissions to 100 ppmv. DyNOR™ pushes the envelope further towards 70 ppmv NOx and less than 10 ppmv ammonia slip and closes the gap towards capital intensive catalytic systems. Long term trials at a full scale industrial installation have demonstrated emission levels well below 75 ppmv with ammonia slip below 15 ppmv. Now this process has successfully been implemented as a retrofit in a commercial unit. Results confirm that these levels can be safely achieved without compromising furnace air distribution and residence time.
