The effects of using oxygen to partially or wholly replace fuel air in small-size melting furnaces were studied over a range of application fields. Following definition of the useful parameters, testing was conducted on furnaces for melting glass, ferrous metals (pigiron), nonferrous metals (copper alloys), and ceramic materials. In all cases, oxygen-enrichment was found to provide significant energy savings, as well as notable advantages in terms of both plant output and energy consumption.
