A gas pipe ignitor is provided which is operable to ignite a non-premixed air and fuel mixture and includes an air supply conduit which has an axis ASL, a supply end , and a flame end axially spaced from the supply end. The gas pipe ignitor also includes a fuel supply conduit extending axially interiorly within at least a portion of the air supply conduit and having an entrance end and an exit end. The gas pipe ignitor further includes two branch passages each communicated with the fuel supply conduit. The gas pipe ignitor also includes a deflector body disposed in the air supply conduit and is configured relative to the air supply conduit such that air flowing in the air supply conduit flows along a pass through passage PTP from upstream of the upstream most surface of the deflector body to downstream of the deflector body. The entrance end of the fuel supply conduit is disposed axially upstream of the upstream most surface of the deflector body. The exit end of the fuel supply conduit is disposed relative to the deflector body and the air supply conduit at a location FSE downstream of the upstream most surface of the deflector body such that fuel flowing in the fuel supply conduit from its entrance end to its exit end is isolated from contact with air in the air supply conduit until exiting the exit end of the fuel supply conduit.

An ignitor assembly for a fossil fuel-fired power generation system includes an elongate electrode, a tube sub assembly, and a coupling sub assembly, and an insulator sub assembly. The coupling sub assembly cooperates with other structural elements of the ignitor assembly and the respective windbox in which the ignitor assembly is installed to operably couple the elongate electrode to an external electrical power source. The ignitor assembly includes a contact socket secured by crimping to a lead of the external electrical power source which is biased into an electric current communicating disposition with the electrode rod of the ignitor assembly.
Techniques for monitoring operation of a flame ignitor are provided. In one embodiment, multiple inputs are received. The inputs are received from at least one of a first group of inputs and a second group of inputs. The first group includes a flame rod voltage, a stop signal for deactivation of the flame ignitor, a fuel supply interruption signal, and an air supply interruption signal. The second group includes a start signal for activation of the flame ignitor, and a flame proven signal indicating presence of a flame produced by the flame ignitor. If inputs from the first group are received, a cause of a failure of the flame ignitor is determined. If inputs from the second group are received, a reliability of the flame ignitor is determined.
An integrated system  is described for reducing operating costs of power plants while keeping gaseous pollutants in exhaust flue gasses, such as Mercury (Hg), below acceptable limits. Controller  monitors and controls operation of a scrubber , activator injection system , sorbent injection system  and a filter . Scrubber  provides a neutralizer to remove SOemissions. Activator injection system  provides and activator that increases affinity of the pollutant gasses for a sorbent. Sorbent injection system  employs novel low friction injection lances  that evenly distribute the sorbent particles. A filter  collects the sorbent particles that cake onto filter bags  that are periodically cleaned. A controller  receives the costs of materials consumed and the filter bag life for the plant and performs an optimization of the multiple variables to minimize costs while keeping the pollutant emissions below a prescribed limit.

A system for effecting the pretreatment therewith of a sorbent comprising a conveying line (), such as a pipe, and a plurality of solution nozzles operative for purposes of introducing a solution to treat the sorbent. More particularly, the conveying line () includes an inlet (), an outlet (), and an inner surface () that is operative to define a passageway () through which sorbent particles are capable of being transported between the inlet () of the conveying line () and the outlet () of the conveying line (). Each of the plurality of solution nozzles includes a respective one of a plurality of orifices () that are designed to be disposed circumferentially about the inner surface () of the conveying line () and that are designed to be operative to effect therewith the injection of an aqueous solution of a liquid sorbent conditioner into the passageway () in order to thereby effect therewith the pretreatment of sorbent particles that are being transported through the passageway () in the conveying line ().
