The following report reviews modern technology of  regenerative burners with emphasis on heat recovery and flameless combustion techniques for high temperature processes.  Performance of the combustion equipment are most important in large strip-line furnaces not only for energy savings and NOx abatement, but also for reliable, trouble free operation.

The paper describes a modern, compact  regenerative burner that has been extensively installed and tested on industrial furnaces and assesses related features.  Significant and successful applications to large Annealing and Pickling lines for stainless steel strip are reported.

Industrial practice and field feed-back point out that a modern, efficient and more reliable combustion  system may be competitive and that possible additional investment costs can be recovered in a short time, while providing better quality and easy operating conditions.

Key words: flameless combustion,  burner-integrated heat recovery, regenerative burners, Annealing and Pickling lines

Publication in the Journal

The Editor-in-Chief (See associated article in this edition of the MNM) would like to remind all potential authors that publication in the Journal is open to all. If you have interesting results to publish in the field of, or related to, industrial combustion, we invite you to prepare a paper according to the guidelines given in the Author’s Guide on the website (http://www.journal.ifrf.net/).

Papers may be regular “articles” (typically up to 20 pages) or Communications (typically up to 4/5 pages). Review papers can of course be longer. Remember that figures and graphics in general can be in full color. This advantage should be encouraged.

All manuscripts and associated files, proposed for publication should be sent by the Corresponding Author in a compressed/zip file, as an email attachment to journal@ifrf.net. This file should include a statement that the proposal’s content is unpublished material that has not being submitted for publication elsewhere. When an article by the author(s) is cited in the proposed article as “in press”, a copy of this article should accompany the proposed article and should be included in the compressed file.
The Editor-in-Chief looks forward to receiving your proposals.
