AFTERBURNER RETROFIT PACKAGES
The need for clean, efficient and cost-effective afterburners on wax burnout furnaces has grown in response to local, state and federal environmental regulations. PKI was the first manufacturer to offer afterburners as an integral part of new wax burnout furnaces. In response to customer demand, PKI now offers afterburner retrofit packages for our own furnaces as well as other manufacturer’s furnaces.
More stringent environmental regulations may have made your existing afterburner obsolete, or process changes (more shells per batch, larger shells or higher burnout temperatures), may cause smoke episodes even if the afterburner meets the environmental standards. Either way, your foundry faces a compliance violation and potentially costly fines.
PKI can upgrade your after burner to match the current regulations as well as meet your worst case wax load. A typical Afterburner Upgrade scope-of-the-work includes:
- Engineering Assessment
- Layout/Elevation Drawing
- Afterburner Data Report
- New Burner/Blower Package
- Insulated Stack Sections
- Installation Instructions
Whether you have a furnace built prior to environmental regulations or you are converting a preheat furnace to wax burnout, an afterburner system can be added to comply with current regulations. PKI can add an afterburner system to any preheat or wax burnout furnace regardless of the size or manufacturer. A typical Afterburner Addition scope-of-work includes:
