Air Products' range of oxy-fuel technologies allow non-ferrous melting operations to use less fuel, achieve higher production rates, and reduce flue gas and particulate carry over. By completely or partially replacing combustion air with oxygen, the nitrogen in air can be reduced or eliminated from the process, keeping it from carrying valuable heat up the stack and making more heat available to melt your non-ferrous materials.
Many different types of furnaces are used in non-ferrous melting operations, including tower furnaces, rockers, induction, rotaries, and reverbs. Each of these furnaces requires a different approach to oxy-fuel burner design to meet its design consideration and heat input needs.
Air Products can help you determine the most economical supply option for your particular application and geographic location. Industrial gases are typically provided in gaseous and liquid form through a variety of supply systems.
Oxygen can improve combustion through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures, and reduced volume of flue gases in metals production operations.
Valued for its reactive and protective properties, and used by many industries such as electronics, foods, glass, chemicals, refining and more can benefit from its unique properties to improve quality, optimize performance and reduce costs.
