A partially open fired heater regenerative cycle, wherein the fired industrial type heater cycle's heat transfer fluid replaces the air predominant nitrogen heat transfer fluid employed in a conventional air/fuel combustion heater, is disclosed. The heater cycle's method and apparatus are susceptible to providing a significant percent mass flow reduction of fugitive nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide mass flow emissions as emitted by current art Low-NO.sub.x art heaters on a rated per million Btu per hour basis, and is further capable of developing exceptionally high steady-state heat transfer system cycle thermal efficiencies.
