Combustion technology has traditionally been dominated by air/fuel combustion. However, two developments have increased the significance of oxygen-enhanced combustion - new technology producing oxygen less expensively and the increased importance of environmental regulations. Advantages of oxygen-enhanced combustion include numerous environmental benefits as well as increased energy efficiency and productivity.The text compiles information about using oxygen to enhance high temperature industrial heating and melting processes - serving as a unique resource for specialists implementing the use of oxygen in combustion systems; combustion equipment and industrial gas suppliers; researchers; funding agencies for advanced combustion technologies; and agencies developing regulations for safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly combustion systems.Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion:o Examines the fundamentals of using oxygen in combustion, pollutant emissions, oxygen production, and heat transfero Describes ferrous and nonferrous metals, glass, and incinerationo Discusses equipment, safety, design, and fuelso Assesses recent trends including stricter environmental regulations, lower-cost methods of producing oxygen, improved burner designs, and increasing fuel costsEmphasizing applications and basic principles, this book will act as the primary resource for mechanical, chemical, aerospace, and environmental engineers and scientists; physical chemists; fuel technologists; fluid dynamists; and combustion design engineers.Topics include:o General benefitso Economicso Potential problemso Pollutant emissionso Oxygen productiono Adsorptiono Air separationo Heat transfero Ferrous metalso Melting and refining processeso Nonferrous metalso Mineralso Glass furnaceso Incinerationo Safetyo Handling and storageo Equipment designo Flow controlso Fuels
