Honeywell Unveils the ECOMAX® LE Burner
Producers interested in their upstream scope 3 emissions will also be interested in the latest from Honeywell, headquartered in Houston. The company has unveiled the ECOMAX® LE burner with a metallic recuperator for indirect radiant tube heating applications such as tempering, hardening, continuous lines and annealing. Developed for furnace original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that need to meet tightening global nitrogen oxide emissions requirements and end users who want to increase fuel gas savings, Honeywell’s latest ECOMAX family member features low emissions, process efficiency and low operating costs.
ECOMAX LE offers both flame and flameless operation, with a switching temperature of 850°C (1560°F). The burner operates in flame mode until the switching temperature is reached, then switches to flameless mode for the best nitrogen oxide performance, delivering an average of 30% fuel gas savings compared to a typical cold air burner and enabling compliance with the latest emissions regulations. In addition, ECOMAX LE burners can run on up to 100% hydrogen without a significant increase in nitrogen oxide emissions, when compared to firing natural gas.
