Description Paper from the AFRC 2013 conference titled The World's First Flameless Crude Heater by Bill Gibson.
Abstract Commissioning of the World's First Flameless Crude Heater is now complete in Coffeyville, KS. Great Southern Flameless (GSF) is proud to present actual operating and performance data which proves that GSF flameless technology is commercially approved for refinery and petrochemical plant process heaters. While high temperature air combustion (HTAC) and Flameless Combustion are not at all new concepts, they are both new to the direct fired process heater industry. GSF's flameless crude heater can be run in conventional firing mode, staged firing mode and in flameless mode with a proven 4-8 ppmvd NOx in flameless mode. GSF has developed this revolutionary flameless technology which utilizes HTAC for maximum efficiency and CO2 reduction yet the flameless combustion process produces NOx levels which have previously only been achievable with an SCR. The cost of this system is equivalent to a conventional double fired heater with a conventional balanced draft air preheat system.
