Revised Application technology shaft furnace in the Non ferrous metals sector

Shaft furnace

Increasing production with tailormade oxygen applications

GAS APPLICATION

Combustion with oxygen (oxyfuel) instead of with air as an oxidising agent reduces fuel consumption and increases process efficiency. 

 

Advantages of Oxyfuel burner systems at a glance:

  • Higher combustion efficiency
  • Higher melting rate
  • Faster heating-up times
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Higher processing temperatures possible
  • Faster reaction speeds
  • Lower exhaust gas levels
  • Less dust
  • Lower emissions
  • Lower production costs
     

MESSER SOLUTION


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.

Controlled (Pulsating) Oxijet

Oxygen is introduced directly into the furnace via lances with the oxygen exit velocity in the supersonic range. The lava lances used only generate the required impulse when there is a defined design point. Pulsation guarantees consistent oxygen content in the air/oxygen mixture. 

Oxipyr – Burner Technology

Oxipyr-burners shorten the cold start time of shaft furnaces.  

Oxipyr-burners are used in combination with dust feed systems. Dust feed lances and high momentum burners together form one unit.   

Advantages:

  • Higher combustion efficiency
  • Higher melting rate
  • Faster heating-up times
  • Lower fuel consumption
  • Higher processing temperatures possible
  • Faster reaction speeds
  • Lower exhaust gas levels
  • Less dust
  • Lower emissions
  • Lower production costs

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.
