ACI's most used Lead furnace solution includes PyreTron™ air/oxy/fuel and PyrOx oxy/fuel burners,
providing a higher flame temperature, an improved heat flux and a more efficient combustion, to
significantly increase melting rates.
ACI systems offer the flexibility to vary the ratios of fuel and oxygen, in order to minimize fuel
consumption and optimize thermal performance. This provides significant operating cost savings,
compared to traditional burners. The fully automated PLC-based control system logic can be
programmed to continuously optimize flame characteristics and to maximize system performance. The
control system is equipped with self-diagnostic software for ease of maintenance. The operator
interface provides for user-friendly operation.
Key characteristics of the ACI burner system for use in lead furnaces are:
ACI have developed reliable means to measure in real time using a Tunable Laser Diode device the CO
content in the fumes and to accordingly regulate the air, oxygen and fuel flows, so as to optimize the
furnace energy usage and increase metallic yield.
