The PyrOx™ Burner

PyrOx™ Burner

ACI's PyrOx™ burner system utilizes pyrolysis based two stage combustion technique that assures superior radiative and convective heat transfer to the load. The fuel and oxidizer are pre-mixed in the combustion chamber to guarantee highest fuel utilization.

  • Highly efficient 1 to 4.5 MW oxy-fuel burner, used in EAFs
  • High velocity, high pressure flame impinging on the steel scrap pile
  • Water-cooled combustion allows active mixing of natural gas and oxygen protects the nozzle from plugging with splashing slag and steel

PyrOx™ Burner Benefits

  • Increase Furnace Production
  • Increase melting rate up to 50%
  • Decrease total energy cost
  • Improve Metallic yield
  • Extend Refractory life
  • Optimize oxygen usage

Characteristics of PyrOx™ technology

Efficiency: Highly luminous flame dramatically increases heat transfer efficiency to the load

Robust Concept: PyrOx™ is an industry-proven design, showing extended longevity together with low maintenance requirements

Power Range: from 1.5 MW up to 4.5 MW

  • Staged combustion
  • Multiple, high velocity jets (perfect mixing and reduced residence time
  • Independently control of the oxygen / air ratio
