Reheat Furnace

Air Products’ oxygen enhanced combustion solutions can help you shorten cold start-ups, reduce heating times, lower fuel consumption, and achieve faster heating 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. Also, since air is being replaced with oxygen, the volumes of exhaust gases can be reduced which can help you avoid expensive upgrades to your exhaust systems. The best solution for your process depends on many factors, such as your existing furnace’s operating parameters, throughput goals, and fuel costs. 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 temperatures and reduced volume of flue gases.

Air-oxy-fuel Systems

Our air-oxy-fuel systems provide many of the same benefits as oxy-fuel while providing the flexibility of using air when oxygen is not required. These systems can be easily retrofitted to your existing furnace, allowing you greater flexibility to manage your production demands. Additional savings in fuel costs contribute to the overall economic benefit.

Oxy-fuel Systems

Our combustion systems are designed for a wide turn-down, with seamless and continuous mode transition maintaining temperature uniformity in each zone. These systems can deliver up to 50-60% fuel savings for furnaces without heat recovery while reducing heating times.

Oxygen Enrichment Systems

Oxygen enrichment of combustion zones can boost the heating performance of a furnace or zone. Even low level enrichment of air-gas flames can increase heat transfer enabling higher throughputs while reducing specific fuel consumption.

Process Management System

You can effectively track operating trends with our advanced methods for data collection and process monitoring. This insight can help you identify areas for improvement so you can achieve more consistent results and lower operating costs. Our systems can automatically generate reports for the data that is most critical to your operation and notify key personnel of deviations from process set-points or targets.
