COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF ROCKET TECHNOLOGY TRW LOW NOX BURNER 751097
The TRW Low NOx Burner was conceived and developed utilizing the substantial technical expertise acquired during development and production of combustion systems for rocket engines and auxiliary power units. The Low NOx Burner is based upon hydraulic and injection principles derived from the design of the Lunar Excursion Module lander rocket engine. This engine required high combustion intensities, turndown ratios and manned flight reliability. Using these basic principles, TRW has patented, developed and commercialized power burners which have demonstrated reduced pollutant levels and high thermal efficiencies. Gas, light and heavy oil burners firing over a 2 to 55 MBtu/hr have been developed and field tested. The TRW activity has also been expanded into demonstration programs to demonstrate similar performances and low emission levels in utility type boilers.
