Optimized emission values and reduced consumption of resources
Bietigheim-Bissingen, September 2017 – A more robust mode of operation, more reliable ignition behavior, and optimized emission values – these are the defining characteristics of the Ecopure® TARCOM VI, Dürr's new generation of burners. The TARCOM VI has been developed based on the successful Ecopure® TARCOM V, which is used in Ecopure® TAR recuperative thermal exhaust-air purification systems. The new burner offers crucial benefits, particularly in anticipation of the planned tightening of emission limits.
Based on its special design, the Ecopure® TARCOM VI can preheat process air to a temperature of up to 600°C, which makes treating solvent-laden exhaust air more cost-efficient.
Improving the overall performance and efficiency of the Ecopure® TARCOM VI, as well as cutting operating cost, was key for the development. For example, the compressed air requirements are 50% lower than its predecessor and turndown of the process air is improved.
This offers a great potential for savings, particularly when combined with Dürr‘s EcoSmart VEC, which controls fresh and exhaust air for ovens in automotive paint shops with a demand-based energy supply.
The optimized fuel supply in this new generation of burners reduces nitrogen oxide emissions. The Ecopure® TARCOM VI also reduces carbon monoxide (CO) emissions by improving the combustion of hydrocarbons (VOC) at comparable temperatures. Temperatures in the combustion chamber can be reduced by up to 40°C, regardless of the equipment manufacturer. Operating costs are also reduced considerably. As the lower temperature in the combustion chamber protects its materials, the lifecycle of the Ecopure® TAR system is extended.
The Ecopure® TARCOM VI is available as a natural gas, liquid gas, or switchable combination burner. It is suitable for outputs of between 45 and 8,000 KW and process air volumes from 2,000 to 40.000 Nm3/h.
Dürr has already begun installing the new burner as a standard feature in Ecopure® TAR systems. Existing exhaust-air purification systems can be upgraded, regardless of the original manufacturer.
