Next Generation Burners Offer Remote Monitoring, Enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things, to Help Glass Manufacturers Optimize Production.

Air Products will highlight its latest Cleanfire® oxy-fuel burners with optional remote monitoring capabilities at the 78th Conference on Glass Problems in Columbus, Ohio, from November 6-9. 

The company’s next generation of glass burners can be outfitted with on-burner diagnostic sensors and wireless communication technology to provide glass manufacturers with instantaneous access to burner operating parameters.

Enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things, up-to-date burner performance data can be received in a control room or on remote computers and smart devices, helping glass manufacturers optimize their production. 

Air Products will highlight its new Cleanfire® ThruPorte™ burner, which is ideal for aging glass furnaces and use during regenerator repairs.

The water-cooled, oxygen-staged oxy-fuel burner can easily be installed in an existing port while the furnace is running to extend furnace life near the end of a campaign or restore full production on furnaces crippled by failing regenerators.

Bill Horan, lead engineer at Air Products, will discuss the new ThruPorte burner during his presentation, “Maintaining Full Production in Furnaces with Failing Regeneration Using Oxy-fuel Combustion,” to be held at 11 a.m. on November 8th as part of the Combustion Technical Session. 

Conference attendees who visit Air Products’ suite at the Hilton Columbus Downtown, Bellows F, also will learn about the company’s newest innovation, the Cleanfire® HRx™ burner, with increased flame radiation for high fuel efficiency, ultra-low NOx emissions, and foam reduction capability for high-quality glass production.

In addition, Air Products will donate $100 on behalf of each visitor to the company’s suite (up to a total of $15,000) to the Ceramic & Glass Industry Foundation to foster innovation by the next generation of ceramic and glass professionals. 

Air Products has been supplying oxy-fuel technology to the glass industry since the mid-1970s. The company has a state-of-the-art Clean Energy Laboratory that facilitates the development and full-scale testing of actual combustion systems using a full spectrum of gaseous, liquid and solid fuels from customers.

Located in Allentown, Pa., the Clean Energy Laboratory enables remote monitoring of real-time combustion tests from locations around the world.
