Abstract:

After new Low NOx boilers were installed at the Pentagon Heating and Refrigeration Plant PHRP, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory CERL was tasked by the Baltimore District Pentagon Renewal Office PRO to research several issues related to the installation and performance of the units. CERL assembled a team of engineers to conduct on-site testing and inspection to assess whether the installed system met the intent of parallel metered combustion controls to produce safe and stable low NOx combustion. The team made four site visits to investigate the adequacy and safety of the primary air and flue gas recirculation configuration with regard to combustion control, to address items of special interest to the PHRP, and to make recommendations to improve system performance.
