The Air Products Cleanfire® HRₓ™ burner harnesses the power of oxygen staging and allows users to control the magnitude and location of staging. The HRₓ™ burner offers you expanded functionality and flexibility with unmatched performance in your glass melting furnace; whether as a boost burner to complement the operation of an air-fuel furnace, or in a full oxy-fuel furnace, to increase fuel efficiency, lower NOₓ emissions, or reduce foam.
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.
This paper describes the principles behind oxygen staging and it's novel use in glass melting furnaces to achieve a variety of benefits.
The Advanced Clean Energy Laboratory is our newest demonstration facility, capable of facilitating development and full-scale testing of combustion systems using actual customer fuels. Plus a remote video imaging system enables real-time participation in testing via the Internet.
