Compressed Oxygen Gas & Liquid Oxygen

Preheater combustion

Oxygen enrichment and injection systems can help enhance combustion in the preheater by reducing CO levels and mitigating demands on the ID fan, especially when burning alternative or waste fuels. For case studies, actual operating data, and information on the economics of oxygen enrichment for common operating conditions, download pdfs of technical articles below.

Oxygen

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. By increasing the oxygen concentration of preheater towers that charge tires or other fuels, CO levels can be reduced and demands on the ID fan can be mitigated, helping maintain design kiln velocities and combustion. Even a small increase in oxygen concentration can have a dramatic impact on combustion performance and CO formation, especially when substituting difficult-to-burn fuels for coal.
