Turning low grade scrap into high efficiency savings
Our new generation of oxy-fuel melting technology, which consists of two main features — a High Yield Burner and an Advanced Low Emission Melting (ALEM) system can be tailored to your specific melting requirements. The technology facilitates the processing of highly contaminated scrap whilst minimising melt losses and flux usage and increasing productivity through reducing costs and total emissions.

The Advanced Low Emission Melting (ALEM) system measures the degree of contamination, automatically controlling the oxygen flow to ensure more efficient combustion.
The High Yield Burner is designed to provide the same benefits as conventional oxy-fuel technology whilst increasing yield by 1-2% and reducing flux by up to 10-15%.
