Electric Arc Furnace

Air Products’ oxygen enhanced combustion and post combustion systems can help you increase melt rate and productivity, while lowering your melting costs. The best solution for your furnace depends on many factors, such as your existing electric arc furnace’s operating parameters, production goals, baghouse limitations and the current market conditions. Our applications engineers can help you implement tailored systems to meet your specific needs.

Oxygen

Oxygen is routinely used in modern EAFs for decarburisation, oxy-fuel assisted melting and carbon monoxide post combustion. Using oxygen in these applications can reduce tap-to-tap time and lower electrical consumption per ton of steel. Oxygen can be supplied from a dedicated plant located at or near your facility. We can help you optimise oxygen usage for your melting operation and can provide you with the most economical mode of supply based on your consumption patterns.

Oxy-fuel Systems

Our oxy-fuel assisted melting systems can provide you with the flexibility to increase melt rates and lower melting costs. Oxy-fuel assisted melting can significantly reduce scrap melt times, resulting in quicker tap-to-tap times, reduced power consumption and lower refractory and electrode costs per ton of steel produced.

Post Combustion Systems

Our proprietary post combustion technology delivers oxygen to the optimal location where it can help promote the combustion of carbon monoxide inside the furnace and effectively transfer this energy back to the melt instead of the ductwork. Our post combustion systems can help you increase productivity while reducing carbon monoxide emissions and baghouse temperatures.
