Summary

This paper discusses the results of field tests using combustion modifications for control of NOx emissions from glass melting furnaces. The techniques were initially developed on a pilot-scale glass tank simulator, resulting in generalized correlations between NOx formation and port design and operating parameters. Two commercial container glass melting furnaces were tested–-a 150 tonne/d (165 t/d) endport furnace and a 225 tonne/d (250 t/d) sideport furnace. This paper reviews the generalized correlations, discusses the extent of their agreement with the field test data, and recommends direction for design and operation that should minimize NOx production.
