Air Products will highlight the company's proprietary oxygen injection technologies for cement and lime manufacturing at the 2013 IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Conference in Orlando, Fla., from April 14-16. The company's technologies can help cement and lime manufacturers improve combustion and lower costs, while increasing alternative fuel usage and reducing emissions.
Air Products has helped customers with all types of kilns improve their operations by implementing oxygen-enhanced combustion in cement and lime manufacturing. Oxygen enrichment is a flexible, efficient, cost-effective technology that can help improve the profitability of cement and lime production. With minimal capital investment, cement and lime manufacturers can increase alternative fuel usage, reduce fossil fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, improve burning zone control and kiln stability, and attain more consistent product quality and production rates.
Conference attendees can stop by Booth 316/318 to speak with an Air Products combustion engineer about the benefits of the company's oxygen injection technologies, which can be installed in various pyroprocessing zones by on-site specialists who provide technical assistance during start-up, as well as ongoing technical support after installation. The booth will also feature a digital presentation that provides details on how oxygen-enhanced production works, when it makes sense to implement it, how to get started, and the benefits of using oxygen.
Attendees can also learn about Air Products' state-of-the-art Clean Energy Laboratory, which enables remote monitoring of real-time combustion tests from locations around the world. Located in Allentown, Pa., the Clean Energy Laboratory facilitates development and full-scale testing of actual combustion and gasification systems using a full spectrum of gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels from customers.
For over 50 years, Air Products has been developing innovative oxygen-based combustion technologies to help customers improve productivity, reduce energy consumption, reduce emissions, and increase the use of alternative fuels.
