Total Burner Solution for Energy Efficiency and Carbon Reduction

Industrial burner solutions are in the firing line when it comes to sustainability. Thermal processes are a significant source of energy consumption and emissions generation, making them a critical target for innovation under green initiatives. Process managers are now responsible for not only driving productivity and maintaining equipment over as many duty cycles as possible, but also for reducing overall energy usage and finding solutions for carbon dioxide reduction.

 

At Saint-Gobain Performance Ceramics & Refractories, we collaborate with valued partners to continually innovate and engineer products that meet ever-changing customer needs. Our total burner solutions are the culmination of significant research and development (R&D) into ultra-high-performance heaters for critical use cases, from aluminium and foundry applications to chemical processing industries (CPI). Our mission is to deliver efficient burner solutions that help you meet your energy efficiency, productivity, and sustainability goals.

 

Enhancing Energy Efficiency

 

Our total burner solutions uses additive manufactured advanced silicon carbide (Amasic-3D®) combined with twisted channel HeatCor™, twisted tape SpyroCor®, PyroCor™, and NOxBuster® technology to achieve best-in-class thermal and emissions performance.

 

Customers can reasonably experience a reduction of 5 - 20 % energy consumption in conventionally energy-intensive sectors like aluminium and steel finishing. The SpyroCor® product line is easy-to-install, even supporting retrofit products, thus complex and costly installation is not necessary to rapidly realise energy savings. Our HeatCor™ product is the industry-leading recuperator in terms of energy efficiency, providing as much as 20 % energy savings on top of the industry-standard thanks to its proprietary twisted design.

 

The ultimate aim is to enhance energy efficiency while controlling emissions as part of corporate sustainability and sustainable development goals (SDG).

 

Carbon Dioxide Reduction

 

Energy savings naturally translate to direct carbon dioxide reduction. Our products include single-ended radiant tubes, U-tubes and W-tubes, each boasting enhanced design solutions and carefully selected materials to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. Silit® ceramic radiant tubes, recuperators, flame tubes, and combustors are all established, proven and time-tested designs. Not only do these systems assist in saving energy, but they also support carbon dioxide reduction and reduce the need for maintenance. For example, our radiant, u and w-tubes are all fitted with recuperators. Recuperators play a big role in energy efficiency because they help to recover waste heat energy and repurpose it.

 

Carbon dioxide reductions are on par with energy savings, and with retrofit capabilities and significant ease-of-installation, users can realise as between 5 - 20 % emissions reductions with 24 months of installation.

Whether you are using single-ended radiant tubes, u-tubes or w-tubes, you can find out more about what we offer for each one by clicking on one of the buttons below.
