Oxyfuel-process for block pre-heating
Addition of inert gas during DESU process
In the oxyfuel process, the combustion processes are carried out by means of an oxygen burner (oxy-fuel burner), which is operated with pure oxygen or with oxygen-enriched air as oxidant. Messer has developed the Oxipyr burner family for this purpose. Compared to burners that use air as an oxidant, oxy-fuel burners have a number of process technology advantages:
Higher combustion efficiency
Higher melting performance
Faster heating-up times
Lower fuel consumption
Higher processing temperatures possible
Faster reaction speeds
Lower exhaust gas levels
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.
In order to select the optimum system, experts from Messer first carry out a comprehensive process analysis. Following calculations and basic engineering, suggestions are made for optimisation and further procedures.
Oxipyr – Burner Technology
The characteristics of the burner types are multi-faceted and range from low to high momentum burners, oxyfuel to oxygen/air mixing burners and burners for different fuels or fuel combinations. The systems are controlled manually, semi- or fully automatically following compositions or temperature.
