Air Products to Highlight Oxy-Fuel Combustion Benefits at Conference on Glass Problems
Air Products will highlight the benefits of oxy-fuel combustion technology for glass manufacturing and introduce the latest Cleanfire® burners November 2-3 at the 76th Conference on Glass Problems in Columbus, Ohio. The Cleanfire HRe™ burner is reportedly the first smart burner for the glass industry. Designed using the same combustion technology as the Cleanfire HRi™ burner, the Cleanfire HRe burner includes sensors that monitor key burner conditions. The data provided by the Cleanfire HRe burner enables glass manufacturers to optimize burner performance in their furnace, as well as monitor for any conditions that may require operator attention.
Mark D’Agostini, Ph.D., senior research associate at Air Products, will present “Oxygen-Solid Fuel Combustion in Glass Melting Furnaces” on Tuesday, November 3, from 2:00-2:30 p.m. as part of the Combustion, Refractories and Sensors Technical Session. D’Agostini will look at the challenges and risks of petcoke and coal combustion for glass melting, and highlight the benefits that oxygen enrichment can bring, based on laboratory and field data.
