A major U.S. automotive equipment supplier located in the upper-Midwest has awarded Detroit Stoker Company a contract for burner equipment and Turnkey Installation to convert their existing coal fired stoker boiler to 100% natural gas firing.

The 150MMBtu/hr burner retrofit project consists of:

  • Vertical Fired Natural Gas Burner
  • Windbox
  • Forced Draft (FD) & Induced Draft (ID) fans
  • Natural Gas Main & Pilot Trains
  • Programmable Logic Control (PLC) based Burner Management System (BMS)

Detroit Stoker Company’s exclusive DB Low NOx Burner will be supplied for this Turnkey Installation.  The Detroit® DB Low NOx Burner is designed and built around technology that will ensure long term emissions compliance with maximum reliability.  Minimized emissions, simplified maintenance, avoidance of boiler waterwall work and minimized initial installation costs were factors leading to the selection of a Vertical Fired Natural Gas Burner for this Turnkey Conversion.  Vertical firing benefits include optimum heat flux in the lower furnace, elimination of flame impingement, and uniform heat distribution for optimum waterwall circulation and overall boiler efficiency.
