Abstract Two independent projects, separately sponsored by the Department of Energy and the Electric Power Research Institute, were put in place to prove the existence of flue gas stratification in industrial and utility type bOilers. The objective of these projects was to demonstrate the feasibility of using the analysis of stratified flue gas as a guide to the more precise adjustment of burners, thereby increasing the fuel efficiency of multiple burner combustion equipment. Under the DOE sponsored project, our efforts were directed toward industrial boilers. We located two local industrial sites who were agreeable to participating with us under this program. The EPRI sponsored project was a joint effort between the Bailey Controls Company and a very willing utility partner. The utility believed in the stratification phenomenon and had in fact been using it for years to locate and adjust maladjusted burners. Numerous papers have been published which referenced their work in this area. We will also discuss flue gas stratification measured on a very small, two burner gas fired industrial boiler as well as on a larger three cyclone burner utility boiler. Before going into the test results, a brief review of combustion and stratification theory and their interaction is in order.
