Down firing burners

I.C.E. can fit your top red reformers with the state of the art down firing burners, able to work from induced draft up to high temperature, low O2 content TEG gases.

Flame shape and compact sizes are ensured to guarantee no flame impingement on catalytic tubes.

Our design allows to promote compact flames to enable close proximity designs with no overlapping of flames.

Emissions are manageable by use of raw designs coupled with friendly PSA compositions or via staged fuel design.

Cabinet design, piping layout to fit space needs on reformer penthouse.

Materials for construction fully customizable, together with tile design to fit customer / licenser needs.
