The JETFLEX® burner provides operational savings by:
  1. Increasing alternative fuel substitution
  2. Enabling the use of one solid fuel pipe as a common fuel channel for multiple solid fuels.
Transporting and injecting multiple solid fuels simultaneously in separate injection lines increases cold combustion air to the kiln systems, which increases fuel consumption. The JETFLEX burner enables the use of only one solid fuel pipe as a common fuel channel for multiple solid fuels, such as coal, petcoke and solid alternative fuels. This improves heat and power consumption, minimising the cold airflow entering from the fuel transport.
The following calculations can help you get an overview of the savings you can achieve.

Here you can calculate the savings that you can achieve by increasing the fuel substitution with your existing burner from e.g. 20% to 80% with the JETFLEX® burner.

Here you can calculate the transport air savings (reduced power consumption) that you can achieve by combining two independent solid fuel transport systems into one common fuel channel. Default design values are inserted, but can be changed according to your actual operating conditions.
