News ReleaseAir Products to Highlight Latest Cleanfire® Oxy-fuel Burner Solutions at Conference on Glass Problems

October 21, 2019 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) will highlight its latest Cleanfire® oxy-fuel burner solutions at the 80th Conference on Glass Problems in Columbus, Ohio, from October 28-29. 

Conference attendees who visit Air Products’ suite at the Hilton Downtown Columbus, Bellows F, will learn about the latest innovations in company’s line of Cleanfire oxy-fuel burner technologies, which can help glass manufacturers increase glass production, reduce fuel consumption, improve glass quality and reduce emissions. On behalf of each visitor to the company’s suite, the Air Products Foundation will donate $100 (up to a total of $15,000) to the Ceramic & Glass Industry Foundation (CGIF). This is the third consecutive year Air Products has made a contribution to CGIF to foster innovation by the next generation of ceramic and glass professionals.

In addition, Dr. Michael J. Gallagher, senior principal research engineer for combustion technology development at Air Products, will present “Synchronized Oxy-fuel Boost Burners for Zero-Port Performance Optimization in Float Glass Melting Furnaces” on Tuesday, October 29, at 3:00 p.m. as part of the Conference’s Melting and Combustion Technical Session. Dr. Gallagher will discuss an advanced burner technology that is capable of automatically adjusting flame properties—particularly length, luminosity and momentum—in float glass melting furnaces to maximize oxy-fuel performance benefits. He will share both the methodology and beneficial results of field implementation of synchronized oxy-fuel boost burners, a development that combines Air Products Process Intelligence technology with the company’s recently commercialized Cleanfire® HRx™ burner.
