It is a first-of-its-kind burner to run on hydrogen and to operate on the LowNOx combustion principle. Designed especially for the traveling grate pelletizing plants, these burners are 100% hydrogen powered and are part of Metso’s Planet Positive offering focused on environmentally efficient technologies.
Hydrogen-powered Ferroflame LowNOx burners use the same combustion principle as that of Ferroflame LowNOx burners for natural gas launched in 2022. They can readily replace traditional burners in a traveling grate pelletizing plant, and the Ferroflame LowNOx burners for natural gas can be modified to run on hydrogen.
“We are very excited to bring the hydrogen-variant of the Ferroflame LowNOx burner for traveling grate pelletizing plants to the market. Its laboratory-proven functionality and performance with hydrogen can be implemented in pelletizing plants and can help customers in meeting CO2 and NOx targets. We see these burners as a stepping-stone towards decarbonization of the pelletizing industry,” shares Dr. Andreas Munko, Senior Product Manager, Ferrous and Heat Transfer at Metso.
The hydrogen burners are part of Metso’s NextGen Pelletizing concept, which is designed on the vision for the next generation of pelletizing plants that strive to be carbon-neutral and autonomous.
