Praxair Metals Technology Makes Debut in China     

Praxair's patented technology, Dilute Oxygen Combustion, has been successfully installed for the first time in China, at Jinlong Copper Co., Ltd. Praxair said November 18th.
   Jinlong Copper is the largest copper smelting joint venture in China, located in Tongling city, Anhui province. Praxair China's applications technology team designed, fabricated and installed a complete dual-fuel Dilute Oxygen Combustion system for a 400-ton anode furnace at Jinlong Copper, replacing an existing air-fired system.  The results were fuel savings of more than 60% and flue gas emissions reduction of more than 70%. Additional benefits to Jinlong Copper include higher furnace productivity and low maintenance.  
   Jinlong Copper plans to install the Praxair system on a second anode furnace in the first quarter 2010.
