The Splitvane Twin Chamber Cokeless Furnace consists of two interconnecting chambers:
The upper chamber is inclined with respect to the horizontal to support the charge in a solid form but allow flow in a liquid melt.
– no cooling grates are needed to support the charge
– expensive ceramic balls are eliminated
– there is no need to install an external furnace for duplexing
– the burner features swirling vanes to minimize NOx emissions
Side ports are provided in the lower chamber for alloying and refining and oxygen lancing.
Flue gases are directed to a recuperator to preheat combustion air , improving thermal efficiency while reducing emissions of carbon monoxide.
