Cupola

Air Products’ oxygen enhanced combustion solutions can help you achieve greater fuel efficiencies, increase production and melt rate, reduce coke rates, achieve more consistent melt chemistry and improve alloy recovery. The best solution for your process depends on many factors, such as your existing cupola’s operating parameters, production goals and the current market conditions. Our applications engineers can help you implement tailored systems to meet your specific needs.

Gases

Oxygen

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. By supplementing or replacing combustion air with oxygen, overall combustion can be improved through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures, and reduced volume of flue gases. As a result, you can achieve greater fuel efficiencies and increase production rates.

Equipment

Oxy-fuel Systems

View our combustion website. Air Products cupola oxy-fuel systems can provide the added capability of introducing supplemental fuel to reduce coke consumption and improve the operation of your cupola. Our proprietary design combines a unique oxy-fuel burner with the ability to inject oxygen alone and/or solids through the tuyere to enhance the flexibility of your cupola. These systems can help you reduce the use of coke, lower raw material costs, enable efficient disposal of waste materials and increase your melt rate.

Oxygen Enrichment Systems

Our oxygen enrichment systems are specifically designed to provide supplemental oxygen to your process through either tuyere injection or a blast air diffuser. These systems are tailored to the parameters of each cupola to maximize the benefits of oxygen enrichment--coke savings, increased production, consistent melt chemistry and improved alloy recovery.

Process Management System

You can effectively track operating trends with our advanced methods for data collection and process monitoring. This insight can help you identify areas for improvement so you can achieve more consistent results and lower operating costs. Our systems can automatically generate reports for the data that is most critical to your operation and notify key personnel of deviations from process set-points or targets.
