Cleanfire® ThruPortₑ™ Burner

A solution for aging regenerators in the glass industry

The Air Products Cleanfire® ThruPort™ burner, one of Air Products’ latest development 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.

To avoid downtime during regenerator repairs or extend the life of an aging furnace, our ThruPortₑ burner can be easily installed through your existing furnace port to efficiently add heat and help maintain your desired production level—while delivering high efficiency and low NOₓ emissions. To do this, the burner takes advantage of several unique features:

  • Tandem, water-cooled oxy-fuel burner and oxygen staging lance assembly
  • Natural gas and oil-fired versions, with firing capacity in the range of 4–20 MMBTU/hr
  • Proven, durable design—easily installed in existing port, while furnace is running
  • Adjustable flame length and angle for optimal heat distribution and surface coverage
  • Optional state-of-the-art on-burner diagnostic sensors and wireless communications technology—providing instantaneous remote access to up to-date burner operating parameters
  • Available for rapid deployment
