In furnace combustion operations, achieving an optimal air-to-fuel ratio is every operator’s goal. Excess air in the fuel mix is the the frequent cause of rising fuel consumption in foundry and diecasting melting furnaces. “If you don’t keep an eye on air-fuel ratios, you are literally burning money,” according burner expert Rudolf Hillen of StrikoWestofen, which is introducing an economical approach to near-stoichiometric burner adjustment.
Optimal Air-to-Fuel Ratio for Optimal Results
Near-stoichiometric burner adjustment saves energy, cuts metal oxidation
