The paper presents state-of-the-art combustion technologies for heating applications in the steel industry. Two types of burners that exhibit dilution combustion were evaluated in this study carried out in a semi-industrial furnace. These were regenerative air-fuel burner and oxy-fuel burner. The tests with regenerative air-fuel were carried out applying operation both with and without oxygen-enrichment. The main parameters studied for the different types of burners and operations include heat flux, thermal efficiency, and NOX at different levels of in-leakage of air. The in-flame parameters were measured including temperature, gas composition, total and radiative heat fluxes. All the studied burners provide a high efficiency of fuel utilization, a large 'flame' with uniform temperature and heat flux profiles. The results also clearly indicate that NOX emissions can be maintained at low or even very low levels well (less than 100 mg/MJ of fuel) meeting the restrictions at industrial-scale operation.
