Ladle / Converter

Horizontal Vessel
Preheating

Horizontal heating systems are used for fast preheating or heat maintaining of ladles and converters. Industrial heating solutions from MEFKON are designed and manufactured in respect of state of the art technology.
Every MEFKON heater is based on the fundamental demands on highest efficiency, lowest emissions and highest reliability.

  • Gas /Air

    Gas / Air

    The MEFKON high velocity gas/air burner is a versatile standard burner for industrial furnaces and thermal processing equipment. The burner is characterised by its best controllability and its small NOx-values.

  • +Gas / Oxygen

    Gas / Oxygen

    The MEFKON Oxyfuel burner has been specially developed for high-temperature applications and is characterised by its high efficiency, lowest emissions, ease of maintenance and best controllability. Up to 50% energy and CO2 savings, compared to a gas/air burner system.

Ladle & Converter Preheater

Horizontal heating sytems are used for high speed heating and heat maintaining. These systems are often equipped with a gas/air burner with the MEFKON 2-stage radiation recuperator or with a gas/oxygen burner. Compared to a conventional gas/air burner, a 2-stage radiation recuperator can increase the efficiency of about 20% (learn more). An oxygen burner increases the efficiency of about 50%.

Preheaters are realized either as stationary unit or for several positions. Additionally the burner lid can be designed with maintenance doors for oxygen lancing.
