Furnace gas

As energy demand rises and expenses rise, the metallurgical industry struggles to fulfill its high power needs. Furnace gas, a byproduct of metal manufacture, can be used as a fuel for power generation.

In metal production, furnace gas provides a unique power solution. Companies can cut energy expenses and help the environment by capturing these gases.

Utilizing furnace gas for power production is cost-effective. The industry often receives these gases for free as a byproduct of metal manufacturing. By catching and utilising them as fuel for power generation, enterprises may reduce energy costs and boost profits.

Jenbacher Gas Engines: The Key to Effective Gas Power Generation

Jenbacher gas engines are essential for power generation from metallurgical production gases. These engines can handle coke, blast furnace, and converter gas.

Reliability, efficiency, and flexibility are Jenbacher gas engine hallmarks. They can work with a variety of gas types and calorific levels. Their versatility makes them excellent for using gases from metallurgical production processes, which might vary in composition.

These gas engines maximize gas energy conversion into power and heat. Jenbacher engines’ high electrical efficiency converts a large part of gas’s energy into useable power, eliminating waste and maximizing system efficiency.

Jenbacher gas engines are reliable and efficient. They’ve operated continuously in harsh industrial conditions. Industries that require uninterrupted power supply depend on this reliability.

Jenbacher engines integrate easily into existing power systems. Companies can sell extra electricity to the grid by running them parallel to the grid. This reduces energy expenditures and generates revenue.

Power Generation Potential of Coke Gas

Industrial coke manufacturing produces coke gas, which can generate power. Coke gas has 5 kWh/Nm3 calorific value due to its high hydrogen (50-60%) and methane (15-50%) content. This makes it a promising fuel for power generation, especially when used with Jenbacher gas engines, which enhance gas energy extraction.
