ABSTRACT The paper discusses the fundamentals and results achieved by the application of state-of-the-art technology, named ABACO, in refinery fired-heaters and boilers. The improved controls provided by this technology results in increased combustion efficiency, minimum pollutant emissions (CO2, CO, NOx, SOx, particles) and safer operation. This technology relies on the

INTRODUCTION The adequate measurement of Loss On Ignition (LOI) in pulverized coal boilers is an issue of the utmost importance for optimizing all-round boiler operation, as this parameter has direct influence on efficiency and marks the limit to establish targeted boiler tunings for NOx minimization. Additional benefits are those related
