Praxair, Inc. has announced that it has started up a 180-tons-per-day, non-cryogenic plant for Owens-Illinois (O-I), the world's largest glass container manufacturer and preferred partner for many of the world's leading food and beverage brands. O-I has converted a conventional air-fuel glass furnace to oxy-fuel using Praxair’s oxy-fuel combustion technology and, under a long-term contract, Praxair will supply gaseous oxygen to the glass facility located in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
Oxy-fuel combustion uses oxygen rather than air to enhance combustion, improve energy efficiency in the glass melting process and reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. In addition to supplying the oxygen, Praxair has provided the oxy-fuel combustion flow control skids and installed its dilute oxygen combustion Wide Flame Burner technology, designed to minimize furnace emissions and reduce furnace crown deterioration.
“Praxair pioneered the development of advanced oxygen-based processes for enhancing combustion within glass furnaces,” said Pravin Mathur, executive director for Praxair’s Global Market Development organization. “We are pleased to continue to bring this experience to our long-time customer, O-I. Our plant and technology will provide an efficient and reliable supply of oxygen and oxy-fuel combustion to O-I, increasing their productivity and improving the environmental performance of their manufacturing processes.”
“Praxair’s extensive technical and process experience with oxy-fuel gla...
