Oxy-Fuel Tank Furnaces
Melting area: 3-150 m2
Melting capacity: 1-16 oxy- / gas-burners
Doghouse: 1 piece
- less energy consumption than regenerative and recuperative tank furnaces
- less NOx-Emission
- less investment costs than regenerative tank furnaces
- less space requirements
- high flexibility
- high furnace temperatures possible
- long lifetime
- increase of glass quality
- less exhaust volume flow and so less dusting
- best for special glass applications
The oxy-fuel tank furnace is a cross fired tank furnace and is suitable for producing special glasses like
Nowadays this type of furnace is used more and more in producing tableware and container-glass. The reasons for this in each case could be less emissions ( especially Nox-Emissions) as well as less energy costs. Especially expensive oil- or gas-prices as well as cheap oxygen-prices at the same time could be an important reason for the choice of this type of furnace.
High-efficient gas (oil) burners guarantee together with a individual controlling by performance and proportion a energy-saving heating for highest glass quality claim. In context with the single burner regulation the temperature profile can be adjusted along the furnace axis.
Our oxy-fuel tank furnaces can be expanded correspondingly with electric boosting systems as following:
- Thermal Barrier
- Electrical Throat-Boosting
Also Bubbling-Systems with air pressure or with oxygen-bubbling are used for different cases.
The melting- and refining-part of the furnaces are optimal adjusted for any cases by different barrier- and throat-designs with or without air/furnace-cooling.
