Summary

This paper discusses a joint development project of Owens-Brockway and Praxair to produce low-NOx on the Owens-Brockway LQS Angeles B furnace. Data presented are Praxair dilute oxygen combustion technology and a comparative evaluation of the oxy-fuel system field pelformance with laboratory and pilot scale tests. General furnace design and operating standards and evaluation of pollutant emissions, energy and oxygen consumption, and glass quality also are presented.
