ULTRA-LOW NITROUS OXIDE TECHNOLOGY GETS UL APPROVAL.Cleaver-Brooks Company, Milwaukee, has received full Underwriters Laboratories Underwriters Laboratories Inc. is a U.S. not-for-profit, privately owned and operated product safety testing and certification organization. Based in Northbrook, Illinois, UL develops standards and test procedures for products, materials, components, assemblies, tools and (UL) and Canadian Underwriters Laboratories (cUL) package approval for its Promethean model 4WI-NT ultra-low nitrous oxide nitrous oxide or nitrogen (I) oxide, chemical compound, N2O, a colorless gas with a sweetish taste and odor. Its density is 1.977 grams per liter at STP. It is soluble in water, alcohol, ether, and other solvents. (NOx) steam and hot water firetube boilers covering a range from 100 to 800 boiler horsepower. A number of Cleaver-Brooks technical and combustion engineering Combustion Engineering (C-E) was an innovative American engineering firm and leading firm in the development of power systems in the United States with approximately 30,000 employees in about a dozen states at its peak. capabilities combine to deliver an Ultra-Low Nitrous Oxide (ULNOx(TM)) capability that reduces emissions and results in cleaner air.
NOx reduction is critically important for the environment and for public health because NOx is a precursor to smog formation when combined with Volatile Organic Compounds volatile organic compound Environment Any toxic cabon-based (organic) substance that easily become vapors or gases–eg, solvents–paint thinners, lacquer thinner, degreasers, dry cleaning fluids (VOCs) and other contaminants in the presence of sunlight.
Cleaver-Brooks has developed the environmental benefits of ULNOx technology by combining boilers, controls and low NOx burners with an integral front head design that also acts as the air supply plenum In a building, the space between the real ceiling and the dropped ceiling, which is often used as an air duct for heating and air conditioning. It is also filled with electrical, telephone and network wires. See plenum cable. for combustion. Cleaver-Brooks boilers operate with exceptionally high fuel to steam/water efficiencies while generating a maximum of 15 Parts Per Million parts per million
mg/kg or ml/l; see ppm. (PPM) NOx to a minimum of <9 PPM when burning natural gas and 70 PPM NOx with #2 oil when the fuel bound nitrogen content is .015% or less.
Cleaver-Brooks Company is the world's leading manufacturer of commercial and industrial boilers, controls and accessories critical to the operations of commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings.
Cleaver-Brooks is also a leader in producing environmental impact reduction and fuel efficiency technologies with its "Campaign for Energy Independence" which includes its FREE (Factually Reducing Energy and Emissions) program that draws upon the expertise of a consortium of organizations including the United Stated Department of Energy (DOE).
