Heat Oxy-combustion

Air is commonly used to provide oxygen for combustion to heat industrial furnaces. Heat Oxy-Combustion is an innovative technology that consists of preheating oxygen and natural gas at high temperature generated by combustion fumes. Compared to oxy-combustion without preheating, it reduces fuel and oxygen consumption to the extent that oxy-combustion is economically beneficial to all types of glass.
