Cleanfire® HRₓ™ Burner

The next generation oxy-fuel burner for the glass industry

The Air Products Cleanfire® HRₓ™ burner harnesses the power of oxygen staging and allows users to control the magnitude and location of staging. The HRₓ™ burner offers you expanded functionality and flexibility with unmatched performance in your glass melting furnace; whether as a boost burner to complement the operation of an air-fuel furnace, or in a full oxy-fuel furnace, to increase fuel efficiency, lower NOₓ emissions, or reduce foam.

Your key operating personnel can have instantaneous access to up-to-date burner operating parameters in your control room or remote computers and smart devices through Air Products Process Intelligence, which uses state-of-the-art on-burner diagnostic sensors and wireless communications technology to monitor and control our gases and equipment as well as track key process parameters.

To help you understand if this burner is a good fit for your needs we can run a demonstration in our pilot-scale Advanced Clean Energy lab.
