Glass is worth celebrating. In its many forms and applications, glass is an essential part of scientific advancement, evolutions in technology, artistic expression, and everyday human life.
Air Products is proud to be part of the glass industry’s rich history and integral to its bright future.
Sustainable Glass Melting Technologies
Guided by society’s challenges and fueled by innovation, Air Products provides industry-leading solutions and creates long-term value through sustainable glass melting technologies. We offer a wide range of oxygen-enhanced glass melting options, with a variety of oxygen enrichment and oxy-fuel combustion methods that can be used to enhance the melting process.
Oxygen-enhanced combustion technologies help improve glass melting furnace performance by displacing combustion air with oxygen. Even a small increase in oxygen concentration can have a dramatic impact on furnace operations.
By reducing or eliminating the introduction of inert nitrogen into the furnace, Air Products' oxygen-enhanced combustion technologies are proven to increase production, decrease fuel consumption, and reduce emissions while maintaining or increasing product quality. With a range of proprietary burners, melting technologies, and modeling services, Air Products uses our skill and experience to help you with design, start-up, and ongoing operation of the optimal system for your furnace.
