The Air Products Cleanfire HRx burner harnesses the power of oxygen staging and allows glass manufacturers to control the magnitude and location of staging. The patent pending HRx burner offers you expanded functionality and flexibility with unmatched performance. Here’s what it can deliver:
- Increased flame radiation for high fuel efficiency
- Ultra-low NOx emissions
- Foam reduction capability for higher-quality glass production
- Enhanced productivity
- Optional instrumentation for remote performance monitoring
Your key operating personnel can have instantaneous access to up-to-date burner operating parameters in your control room or remote computers and smart devices through Air Products Process Intelligence, which uses state-of-the-art on-burner diagnostic sensors and wireless communications technology to monitor and control our gases and equipment as well as track key process parameters.
If you are upgrading your current oxy-fuel burners, adding burners to boost production, or considering converting your air-fuel furnace to oxy-fuel, talk to Air Products to understand if the Cleanfire HRx burner is a good fit for your needs. You can also request a demonstration in our pilot-scale Advanced Clean Energy lab. To make glass better, put Air Products in the mix!
