Hydrogen fuel conversion in fired equipment

Organizations are facing unprecedented challenges in achieving their strategic climate goals. Now is the time to evaluate options for hydrogen refuelling, efficiency improvements, and novel methods of CO2 reduction in fired heaters and boilers.

You can reduce carbon footprints by refuelling fired equipment with hydrogen or ammonia. When planning a refuelling effort there is much more to consider than just the Wobbe Index and combustion performance. The system will experience changes in temperature, velocity, flame speed, radiation heat transfer, and even mass flow. Often, mechanical details limit the success of transitioning to low carbon fuel.

Using our expert combustion, heat transfer, and simulation knowledge, XRG can enable you to achieve maximum performance. We offer entire system studies, recommended operating practices, purpose-built equipment, and turnkey solutions to hit your low-carbon target.

  • CO2 reduction in fried equipment

    Fired heaters emit millions of tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year. Fired heaters usually have a fuel efficiency well below 100%, so any improvements that making them more efficient reduces CO2. Heaters are currently fuelled by carbon-bearing refinery fuel gas or natural gas, so further CO2 reduction ...

  • Xtend by XRG - A better technology for heat transfer

    Fired Heater Fouling Costs Millions. A typical 100,000 barrel per day refinery loses $3-7 million annually because of fouling in fired heaters. Fouling overheats tubes, increases firing rate, reduces yields, and causes lost onstream days. Shutting down a crude, vacuum, or coker heater is extremely costly ...
