Summary

In search of the ultimate firing scheme, staged/pulsed, microprocessor-based burner control has augmented high velocity on batch kilns to reduce fuel consumption below that of most tunnel kilns. Case histories are detailed. Optional kiln pressure and 02 regulation systems are described for beehives, shuttles, etc.
