AMETEK Land to Present on NOx Reduction in Furnaces at Şişecam International Glass Conference

Wednesday, November 6, 2019

AMETEK Land will deliver a technical presentation on NOx reduction using in-furnace thermal imaging at the Şişecam International Glass Conference, combined with 34th Şişecam Glass Symposium, happening November 21 – 22 in Istanbul, Turkey.
Philippe Kerbois, Regional Sales Manager EMEA – Glass from AMETEK Land and Neil Simpson, Consultant at Simpson Combustion & Energy, will deliver a presentation as part of a session entitled 2020 NOx, which will focus on how to lower the NOx levels in a furnace and reference case studies to show how thermal imaging can be used to optimise the thermal profile and establish sources of parasitic air.  

The presentation will cover how optimisation both reduces energy and NO and include how thermal NOx is generated when high flame temperatures are produced and will give real-life examples of when it is possible to see which flame is generating the NOx and how to reduce these levels.  In summing up, the presentation will look at how the thermal imaging NOx filter has the potential to reduce industrial NOx levels today, 2020 and beyond.

Philippe Kerbois, Regional Sales Manager EMEA – Glass from AMETEK Land, explained: “Şişecam is an important glass industry conference at which we look forward to showing how our thermal imaging can now be used, not only for monitoring purposes, but also to help optimise combustion efficiency and reduce emissions.

“We have made significant innovations in the last 12 months and have delivered excellent furnace optimisation and emissions reduction results for glass plants globally. We look forward to discussing our latest innovations at the Şişecam International Conference.”

Within the 2020 NOx session, additional presentations will include Regeneration Repair for NOx Reduction by Hotwork International and NOx Sustainability by Stara Glass.
