If you’re looking for a wide variety of industrial heating systems, you’ve come to the right place at Gordo Sales. We’re proud to offer a huge variety of heaters, from broad component heater options to our explosion-proof drum heaters and many other specific types.
One of the broad heater categories that some of our clients are looking for in greater numbers over recent years: A type called “low NOx” heaters. These are increasingly popular products due to tightening EPA regulations, allowing you to receive high-quality heating benefits while making a limited environmental footprint. Let’s look at how low NOx heaters work and their benefits for many business types – and the environment itself.
The term “NOx” is an abbreviation, one that stands for nitrogen oxides. As many are aware, nitrogen oxides are a greenhouse gas format that is known to be harmful to the atmosphere and environment as a whole.
In certain industrial heating circumstances, NOx gasses are emitted when burning fuel at high heat. The most common and dangerous of these is nitrogen dioxide, which is harmful not only to the environment, but to basic human health as well. This is why low NOx heaters are becoming more popular: As a way to limit or even eliminate these harmful gasses during heating processes.
There are a few methods for low NOx heaters, but perhaps the most common is one called flue gas recirculation. This process involves installing a recirculation duct at the far end of the burner, a duct that will allow the glue gas to give up heat, creating less NOx output. There are also models that require no flue gas duct to achieve NOx levels that are low enough to pass standards and be safe.
There are several reasons why you might consider investing in low NOx heaters for your industrial facility:
