Combustion Optimization

Sensors, probes, and instruments for high temperature furnaces in the glass and ceramics industry:

OxyFire Sensors: Specifically designed for the harsh environment within glass and ceramics furnaces, the Alumina protection tube protects the in-situ oxygen sensor from the silica wash. Installed either in the regenerator crown, or in the regenerator target wall (opposite the port), the sensor measures excess oxygen remaining from the combustion process. This gives the glass furnace operators a method to automatically and/or manually trim the air dampers to minimize excess oxygen.

MMI offers the glass/ceramics industry an opportunity to optimize their combustion system, by "trimming" the air/fuel ratio on their current combustion system.

Maintaining a constant excess oxygen measurement in the glass tank, Marathon's combustion optimization system contributes to glass quality and bottom-line savings.
