Smelting

By using oxygen to enhance combustion and the reactions taking place in your smelting and melting processes for non-ferrous metals, you can achieve greater throughput and reduce specific fuel costs. Additionally, baghouse loading may be eased significantly as exhaust gas volumes can be reduced by 10-70% depending on your operation and oxygen enhanced combustion technology. Even low level enrichment can increase reactions and heat transfer rates, enabling higher throughputs while reducing specific fuel consumption and exhaust gas volumes.

Gases

Oxygen

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. By supplementing or replacing combustion air with oxygen, overall combustion can be improved through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures and reduced volume of flue gases.
