The Industry Challenge

Environmental issues and rising fuel costs are two substantial obstacles in any growing glass business. 

To overcome these challenges and significantly optimize your glass-melting process, discover the ideal solution – Nexelia™ for Melting Oxy-Combustion.

Nexelia™ for Melting Oxy-Combustion

Based on our groundbreaking technology, Nexelia™ for Melting Oxy-Combustion uses pure oxygen instead of air, offering optimal glass-melting conditions by improving heat transfer. 

Air is commonly used to provide oxygen for combustion to heat industrial furnaces. Oxy-combustion is based on the enrichment of air with pure oxygen to improve the overall energy efficiency of the glass-melting process.

In addition to premium expertise and experience, from oxygen supply to the optimization of the combustion, you’ll benefit from equipment and services linked to proprietary new technologies in oxy-fuel glass melting.

Nexelia™ for Melting Oxy-Combustion is well suited for all types of glass, including insulation glass, reinforcement fiber, lighting glass and other technical and container glass.

Your benefits of Nexelia™ for Melting Oxy-Combustion:

  • up to 40% energy savings,
  • up to 90% NOx savings,
  • enhanced furnace efficiency,
  • full support of our glass experts at every step, from the auditing of your current melting process to the preliminary and detailed designs of your new solution, as well as its complete implementation, including commissioning, monitoring and maintenance.

Application equipment

For optimal melting oxy-combustion Air Liquide provides you the following equipment:

  • patented burners,
  • valve trains.

Modeling services

  • AIRLOG is a 0D mass- and energy-balance calculation tool which verifies that oxy-combustion is viable thanks to first feasibility studies.
  • ATHENA 3D allows a complete description of flows and heat transfer within the combustion chamber and the glass bath in aero-combustion, as well as in oxy-combustion. It helps validate the right choices, especially when converting a glass furnace to oxy-combustion.
