Can we conserve energy and increase savings by converting to a synthetic nitrogen/hydrogen atmosphere?

In one word—yes. You can lower costs and reduce waste by converting from a generated atmosphere such as endothermic or dissociated ammonia to a synthetic nitrogen/hydrogen atmosphere.
- Using and paying for the atmosphere only when your furnace is in production, rather than paying for fixed output volumes with generators—even if you use less than the set volume.
- Reducing the hydrogen concentration to a range of 2%–10% while maintaining the high reducing potential that results from the very low dew point of nitrogen.
- Zoning the atmosphere by adding only the required gas blend and volume independently in the different zones of the furnace.
