Ovens fuel conversion study


How do you know if you’re making the right choices when embarking on a fuel conversion project? By calling on the experts. BMA’s consultants, considered to be the leading experts in the field of fuel conversion, will provide you with the costs, the advantages, and all the factors you need to consider when making your decision.

In this industrial process, the concentrated zinc is fed by conveyor into a fluidized bed kiln. The production line comprises 4 ovens and 12 burners.

The first aim of the study was to determine the feasibility of the conversion in terms of natural gas regulation and potential restrictions.

Our team then studied the technical feasibility of converting the oil fired zinc kiln to natural gas.
