Features & Benefits
adVantage® Duct Burner
Up to 80% lower than recirculation type
burners - including over turndown.
Maintained through our patented design
with mixing vortices.
High Energy Spark Ignition (HESI) for
consistent performance in low oxygen and
high water vapor environments.
With TEG oxygen greater than 10.5% and
water vapor as high as 20%.
Stainless steel stabilizers allow for long life
and consistent performance.
Performed on each burner to ensure long
life and trouble free operation.
Provides increased mixing that optimizes
the existing oxygen in the turbine exhaust.
Reduced downstream duct distance and
improved temperature distribution from
Duct Burners from Forney Corporation meet the complex needs of the
combined cycle and cogeneration industry. Forney’s adVantage® duct burner is the
choice for the most demanding conditions of advanced gas turbine applications,
where inlet oxygen of the Turbine Exhaust Gas (TEG) is low or the water vapor
Low inlet oxygen and high water vapor levels have typically required duct
burners to be provided with augmenting air. Forney’s adVantage® design reduces
or even removes the need for augmenting air by using an exclusive mixing process
that optimizes the existing oxygen in the turbine exhaust.
The outstanding CO and VOC emissions performance is a product of
turbulent mixing from the adVantage® duct burner design. The lower emissions
available from the Forney adVantage® duct burner can help to offset other plant
costs such as downstream emission reduction equipment.
Less sensitivity to inlet flow distribution is another benefit to the Forney
adVantage® duct burner. This means the same low emission performance even
with wide TEG flow profiles. Through the exclusive mixing process, Forney
adVantage® duct burner produces a shorter flame length for the same pressure
drop as recirculation type burners. Shorter flame lengths require less downstream
duct distance and allow a greater residence time to mix with the bulk TEG and
improve temperature distribution from the burner.
Forney’s adVantage® duct burners are
optimized for advanced gas turbines
that support the critical low emission
requirements for water or steam
