Burner 4.0

RFCS 2018 - 847237

Development of a new burner concept: Industry 4.0 technologies applied to the best available combustion system for the Steel Industry

Combustion systems and burners for the steel industry have been improved in the recent years focusing on energy saving, pollutant emissions reduction and process flexibility. Burner 4.0 Project is aimed to extend the present technological limits of the combustion systems concerning different areas (design, manufacturing, control & process optimization, operating life & maintenance) to new ones through a challenging combined application of the Industry 4.0 technologies. Additive manufacturing, Internet of Things, Smart Sensors, Big Data Analytics for process optimization and predictive maintenance will be introduced to the present burners leading to a break-through burner concept for the steel industry.
