… as the Oxygen is provided almost without Nitrogen (industrial oxygen is normally 95% purity).
Moreover the Oxygen firing system in a glass melting furnace produces several positive effects related to the furnace geometry and flame characteristics:
- Reduction of specific consumption
- Increase of specific pull
- Reduction of particulates
The oxygen fired system by Falorni can reach performances of NOx emission In compliance with the most recent environmental standards in force.
IN TERMS OF EMISSIONS A WELL DESIGNED FURNACE WITH AN OPTIMIZED COMBUSTION SYSTEM OXYGEN/GAS CAN REACH NOX EMISSION LEVEL BETWEEN 0,3 AND 0,8 kg/Ton (*)
We have developed a package of solutions each suitable to satisfy the needs of the glass industry. The Falorni TECH Low NOx package includes:
- OXY-FUEL FURNACES
A family of full oxygen- fuel furnaces featuring low NOx emissions, high efficency and low consumption.
- OXY SWING injectors
A retrofit system enabling to reduce NOx emission 30% down
Falorni Tech develops and designs OXYGEN/GASFIRED furnaces tailored to the specifications of customers.
Different technologies and solutions are available depending on Customer’s requirements.
For further information and for a specific presentation of this family of furnaces please contact us.
(*) As there is very little N2 available in and around the flame the production of thermal NOx is greatly reduced. However the waste gas volume is also reduced and the concentration of NOx values increases. In such case kg NOx per ton glass must be used to evaluate the emission values.
