Why ClearSign Core™

When a flame is enclosed, it is less able to radiate heat to the atmosphere. If excess air ratios are insufficient, the temperature inside the stack will rise. Such high temperatures can create additional thermal NOx, the primary mechanism contributing to overall NOx emissions.

ClearSign Core™ technology delays ignition by incorporating a high-temperature porous ceramic matrix positioned a few feet away from the fuel-air injection plane. Fuel and air are thoroughly mixed before reaching the matrix and entrain internal flue gases that dilute the mixture before being combusted. The mixture is then ignited by a continuous pilot and contained within a flame length that is typically less than 12in.

“By bringing the Core technology into the vapor combustor space, ClearSign is able to offer emissions performance and efficiencies an order of magnitude better than other technologies and by doing so is able to provide additional flexibility to operators looking to maximize asset utility.” – Matt Hosie – Director of Operations

The high temperature porous ceramic matrix has significantly better emissivity properties than a luminous flame and much more of the thermal energy is radiated into the combustion chamber than in a conventional burner. The thorough mixing of internal flue gases and enhanced radiation, result in a lower peak flame temperature; and through the combination of less time and lower peak temperature, less thermal NOx is generated while also promoting complete combustions and destruction of VOCs. With the maintained chamber temperature, a higher DRE is achieved in the same combustor size as conventional burner technologies.
