Oxygen

An essential gas for the glass industry

Air Products’ Technical Solutions Can Help You Optimize Your Production

Oxy-fuel Melting

Oxy-fuel glass melting furnaces provide the most flexible and efficient means for melting glass in large tonnage production operations. The degree of benefits delivered vs. those possible with an oxy-fuel furnace are very dependent upon burner selection. Operational benefits provided by oxygen can be maximized with full conversion: increased production, decreased fuel consumption and emissions, improved glass quality, reduced maintenance, and extended campaign life of a furnace.

Oxy-fuel Boosting

Oxy-fuel boosting is a flexible, efficient, cost-effective technology that can help improve furnace performance via the addition of oxy-fuel burners to complement the operation of an air-fuel furnace. Oxy-fuel boosting can help achieve the following benefits with minimal capital investment: increased production, decreased fuel consumption and emissions, improved glass quality, reduced maintenance, and extended campaign life of a furnace.

Oxygen Enrichment

Oxygen enrichment is a simple, cost-effective technology that can help improve furnace performance via displacement of combustion air with oxygen. Oxygen is pre-mixed with the general flow of combustion air and uniformly enhances the entire combustion process. Enrichment can help achieve the following benefits with minimal capital investment: increase production, decrease fuel consumption, and extend the campaign life of a furnace.

Oxygen Lancing

Oxygen lancing is a flexible, cost-effective system that can help improve furnace performance via placement of oxygen to replace combustion air specifically where it is mostly needed to improve furnace operations. Oxygen lancing can help achieve the following benefits with minimal capital investment: increased production, decreased fuel consumption and emissions, improved glass quality, reduced maintenance, and extended campaign life of a furnace.
