The Air Products Cleanfire® ThruPortₑ™ burner, one of Air Products’ latest developments for the glass industry, enables installation of oxy-fuel combustion technology on-the-fly through existing air-fuel regenerative furnace ports. This water-cooled, oxygen-staged oxy-fuel burner is ideal for restoring full production on furnaces crippled by failing regenerators, and is most often used either temporarily during regenerator repairs, or to extend furnace life near the end of a campaign.
Your key operating personnel can have instantaneous access to up-to-date burner operating parameters in your control room or remote computers and smart devices through Air Products Process Intelligence, which uses state-of-the-art on-burner diagnostic sensors and wireless communications technology to monitor and control our gases and equipment as well as track key process parameters.
To help you understand if this burner is a good fit for your needs, we can run a demonstration in our pilot-scale Advanced Clean Energy lab.
The Advanced Clean Energy Laboratory is our newest demonstration facility, capable of facilitating development and full-scale testing of combustion systems using actual customer fuels. Plus a remote video imaging systems enables real-time participation in testing via the Internet.
