Oxy-fuel burners mounted in the wall of the EAF provide additional melting energy. The PYRETRON Plus burners shown can also be used for injection of carbonaceous fines (coal, coke). Also shown in the schematic are the PYRELANCE water cooled slag door lance manipulator and an optional afterburner incinerator to reduce CO and hydrocarbon emissions levels from the EAF.
