How do I choose the right burner technology if my melting furnace is a bottleneck or I want to increase production?

Russell Hewertson Russell Hewertson

Your furnace may have heat recovery or conventional cold air-fuel burners. Air Products recognizes that no two furnaces are alike, and that the best solution will match your furnace’s characteristics and situation.

When your furnace was first built, oxy-fuel may not have been appropriate, but now that you need a production increase or your furnace has become a bottleneck, an optimized oxy-fuel retrofit can often be a very cost-effective solution.

Following an assessment of your operation, Air Products’ applications engineers can combine our experience, modeling capabilities and wide range of proven burner technologies to develop a customized oxy-fuel solution for your operation—often increasing production by more than 30% with a payback of as little as 3–6 months. And with our latest patented burner, even increasing yields.
