Staged fuel / Staged air dual fuel burners

Our “SA” (Staged fuel / Staged air dual fuel burners) series is your next choice for a new installation or retro fit.

I.C.E. has a reputable experience in the production of burners for fired heaters.

Ranging from small utility heaters to critical furnaces we have a broad range of burner sizes to suit your heating demand.

Natural or forced draft (cold or preheated air up to 400°C), round shape flame, the “SA” series fits your combined fuel red application. Our tailor made design will be at your disposal to meet desired flame shape and heat output as well as thermal profile along the furnace.

Coupling “Fuel Staging” and “Air Staging” this burner is able to catch the best of two worlds in order to meet today’s stringent environmental requirements.

Robust construction is a further good news for operators searching for a robust equipment able to stand harsh environment of refineries, chemical plants and upstream facilities.

This burner has proven its reliability in several application, including Topping Furnaces, Visbreaker units and many others.

Heat flux control can be maximized by our in-house calculation tools for tips drilling and ports orientation.

Basing on our track list of successful projects, we can match your process need, please contact us for further details!
