Kiln Combustion

Oxygen enrichment is a flexible, efficient, and cost-effective technology that can improve combustion in all types of kilns. Oxygen enhances the combustion of all fuels, enabling improved burning zone control, greater kiln stability, and lower emissions. By increasing the oxygen concentration of combustion air through the addition of relatively pure oxygen, flame temperatures rise, heat transfer rates improve, and overall combustion efficiency increases. Whether you are trying to increase production or lower your fuel costs, oxygen injection can help. For case studies, actual operating data, and information on the economics of oxygen enrichment systems for common kiln operating conditions, download pdfs of technical articles below.

Oxygen

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. Even a small increase in oxygen concentration can have a dramatic impact on burning zone control and kiln operations, especially when substituting difficult-to-burn fuels for coal.
