Compressed Oxygen Gas & Liquid Oxygen

Smelter/Melter

Air Products’ oxygen enhanced combustion solutions can help you increase production rates, lower fuel costs and achieve faster melt rates. By using our proprietary oxy-fuel or air-oxy-fuel burners in your furnace, you can achieve greater throughput and reduce your specific fuel costs. Additionally, baghouse loading may be eased significantly as exhaust gas volumes can be reduced by 40-70%. The best solution for your process depends on many factors, such as your existing smelter or melter’s operating parameters, production goals and current market conditions. Our applications engineers can help you implement tailored systems to meet your specific needs.

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 temperature, increased reaction rates, and reduced volume of flue gases.
