Revised Application technology blast furnace in the Iron & Steel sector

Blast furnace oxygen enrichment

Increasing production with tailormade oxygen applications


Oxygen enrichment


The combustion air required for the process is enriched with oxygen and introduced into the melting zone via tuyeres.

Oxygen enrichment particularly achieves the following advantages in a shaft furnace: 

Reduction in coke rate
Increase in performance
Reduces post-combustion burden
Faster reaction times
Greater flexibility
Higher temperatures in the melting zone
Even temperature distribution across the furnace cross-section
Lower production costs
Lower emissions


In addition to the gases required for your process, Messer offers a variety of equipment for its optimisation under the brand names Oxipyr and Oxijet.   

Messer provides complete gas measurement and control technology for blast furnace processes.
