Combustion

All fuel combustion processes require oxygen. Usually its concentration in air (21 per cent) is sufficient. However, replacing or enriching the air with oxygen provides the following benefits:

  • Increased system efficiency
  • Reduced fuel consumption due to increased available heat
  • Higher cost fuels may be displaced with lower heating value fuels
  • Increased flame stability
  • Increased turndown capability

Our engineering specialists can help you select the appropriate oxygen supply system for your application.  To find out more, contact us at the office nearest your location.

Oxygen

Oxygen can increase boiler or furnace efficiency, reduce fuel consumption due to increased available heat, enable use of lower heating value fuels, increase flame stability and increase turn-down capability.

Oxy-fuel burner

Oxygen injection via dedicated oxy-fuel biomass burners in boilers or furnaces can lead to lower oxygen consumption compared to general oxygen enrichment while providing the same benefits.
