Praxair has extensive oxy-fuel combustion experience in the glass industry. Praxair’s technologies can provide substantial fuel savings, increased productivity and product quality, reduced NOx emissions and alkali volatilization, and prolonged furnace campaigns.
Offerings, such as Praxair’s OPTIMELT™ Thermochemical Regenerator system can help recover waste energy by preheating fuel and endothermically reacting the fuel with the carbon dioxide and steam in recycled flue gas. This converts fuel into hot syngas, allowing you to use 20% to 30% less fuel to melt glass, compared to oxy-fuel and air-fuel glass furnaces.
Praxair also supplies atmospheric, process and specialty gases, high performance coatings, and related services.
