The combustion air required for the process is enriched with oxygen and introduced into the melting zone via tuyeres.
Oxygen enrichment particularly achieves the following advantages in a shaft furnace:
Reduction in coke rate
Increase in performance
Reduces post-combustion burden
Faster reaction times
Higher temperatures in the melting zone
Even temperature distribution across the furnace cross-section
Lower production costs
In addition to the gases required for your process, Messer offers a variety of equipment for its optimisation under the brand names Oxipyr and Oxijet.
Messer provides complete gas measurement and control technology for blast furnace processes.
