Summary

In this paper, the development of a next generation oxy-fuel burner, Maxon OXY-THERM LE (U.S. and foreign patents pending), will be reported. The results of the first large-scale oxy-burner comparison test on a production melter in the United States will be presented. As a result of this test, two container furnaces were converted to utilize this new burner technology, and their status will be reported.
