Development Of An Afterburner Lance For The Commercial Furnace Industry
At Niagara Precision, we specialize in precision CNC machining and assembly for customers in a wide range of industries. We were recently contracted by a manufacturer of commercial furnaces to develop a small-scale water-cooled oxygen injection lance, which was to be used in an experimental smelter. The engineering efforts included complete design and product development including feasibility studies. Because the lance was to be used in the high temperature environment of a smelter, it featured a complex water jacket system.
Composed of stainless steel and copper, components which we machined on our CNC lathe, and 4-axis CNC mill, this allowed us to meet tolerances of ±.001". After dimensional inspections, the machined components were assembled and brazed. The finished lance had dimensions 24" in length, 6" in width and height, and weighed 201 lbs.
Products such as this injector lance are usually produced in Europe, because of our flexible and complete capabilities, we were able to provide this customer with a single source solution, produced domestically. To learn more about this project, see the table below or contact us directly.
