Hydrogen as a carbon neutral, alternative fuel – assuming carbon neutral production can be achieved – will be essential to delivering the U.K. government’s net zero target by 2050. However, hydrogen production hasn’t been achieved on a mass scale yet and firing 100% hydrogen would require substantial infrastructure upgrades. Therefore, it is likely that we will be burning a mixture of various natural gas and hydrogen blends moving forward.
Limpsfield has been designing and manufacturing hydrogen fired burners for 20 years. The burners are not only hydrogen-ready as standard, but also meet the MCPD low NOx requirements and are in the process of getting UKCA, UL, CE approval. In addition, any NOx emissions that hydrogen produces when burned can be almost eradicated when combining Limpsfield’s Low NOx burner technology and with Autoflame’s ATEX combustion management control systems.
