Boosting is the method of choice if you
- - wish to increase your melting capacity without changing your furnace footprint
- - wish to optimise the number of furnaces you have in operation.
Complementing your air-fuel burners, oxyfuel burners are installed and/or oxygen is injected through high-pressure lances. This raises flame temperatures by eliminating nitrogen and increasing the oxygen concentration. As a result, oxyfuel boosting also raises the concentration of CO2 and H2O in the vicinity of the flame. And since these gases are mainly responsible for thermal radiation, they make gas jets more efficient.
