Air Products recently signed a contract to supply its oxy-fuel solution to Kunshan Yongxin Glassware (Yongxin), a leader in heat-resistant glassmaking for microwave ovens and other home appliances in China, to improve productivity and reduce emissions. The integrated oxy-fuel solution includes the supply of Cleanfire® HRi oxy-fuel burners, an automatic control skid for burners, and a PRISM® vacuum swing absorption (VSA) oxygen generator, which will supply reliable and economical oxygen. Air Products also consulted on furnace design, and process and technique optimization.

“Air Products is honored to have been Yongxin’s long-term supplier from its first trial on oxy-boosting in 2007 through today’s full conversion to oxy-fuel combustion,” said Richard Huang, Asia industry manager, Glass. “This is another success story on how our innovative solutions and glass experts can help China’s glassmakers address increasingly stringent environmental regulations while improving productivity, efficiency and quality.”

Air Products’ integrated oxy-fuel solution reportedly offers glass manufacturers benefits such as an approximate 80% reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions, an over 25% increase in productivity, lower capital costs, 25-60% energy savings, and improvements in efficiency and glass quality.
