In today’s competitive environment, metal producers look for ways to increase yield and profits, improve product quality, and achieve overall process optimization. The trial and error approach to operational changes subjects the production process to great risk and the potential for costly mistakes.
Air Products’ proven modeling capabilities enable you to evaluate and investigate ways to increase productivity and cut costs without this risk. Our modeling studies provide you with quick, validated results and recommendations for a wide range of melting, refining, and processing operations for metal production.
Computational modeling was used to help determine the most appropriate burner technology, optimal burner positions and firing modes for implementation of oxy-fuel in conjunction with a customer's regenerative air-fuel burners to significantly increase production.
