Oxy-fuel Burner Systems for Secondary Non-ferrous Melting

Innovative burner systems, custom-tailored to your specific needs

Proven combustion technology, customized to provide the benefits that are important to your operation...

Many of our customers use our burners in furnaces originally designed to melt using air-fuel technologies. When customized and retrofitted with our technology, a number of benefits can be realized.


Production increases of 25 to 40% and higher are very typical

Fuel Savings

Increased fuel efficiency has been demonstrated, in the range of 15-40%

Metal Yield

Charge materials and operating practices vary, but an optimized system can result in yield savings of 0.5-2%


Oxy-fuel burners can reduce flue gas volumes 20-60%, with reduced baghouse loading and temperature; NOₓ emissions can be controlled with a customized burner design and good operating practices

Cost Savings

Proper implementation of oxy-fuel technology by our experienced team can result in overall reduction of melting costs. By increasing production through an existing furnace, significant cost savings can be achieved, with payback in as little as several months.

Advanced Clean Energy Laboratory—virtual demonstrations to global locations

The Advanced Clean Energy Laboratory is our newest demonstration facility, capable of facilitating development and full-scale testing of combustion systems using actual customer fuels. Plus a remote video imaging systems enables real-time participation in testing via the Internet.
