Oxygen lances and tailormade support burners


Oxyfuel Process


The smelting furnaces used in the process are comprised of single burners or burner field systems for auxiliary firing operated with air, oxygen-enriched air or oxygen as an oxidising agent.

In the oxyfuel process, the combustion processes are carried out by means of an oxygen burner (oxyfuel burner) which is operated with pure oxygen or oxygen-enriched air as an oxidising agent. Messer has developed the family of Oxipyr burners for this purpose.  

In comparison to burners which use air as an oxidant, Oxipyr burners provide a range of process technology advantages: 

Higher combustion efficiency
Higher melting rate
Faster heating-up times
Lower fuel consumption
Higher processing temperatures possible
Faster reaction speeds
Lower exhaust gas levels
Less dust
Lower emissions
Lower production costs
Oxygen Enrichment

The oxidising agent fed to the combustion process is enriched with oxygen, with the flow of oxygen being carefully regulated.

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. 

In order to select the optimum system, experts from Messer first carry out a comprehensive process analysis. Following calculations and basic engineering, suggestions are made for optimisation and further procedures.
