Burns Energy Systems is an engineering company specializing in the design and supply of high efficiency, low carbon footprint furnaces to the zinc oxide industry.
Our line of equipment is specially engineered for the production of French Process zinc oxide from primary and secondary zinc sources. Processing secondary zinc has the potential to save hundreds of dollars per tonne off your zinc cost.
Our 3-crucible vaporizing furnaces use less than 3.5 GJ to produce a tonne of ZnO. That is at least twice as efficient as other furnaces in the ZnO industry.
Depending on fuel cost, the potential fuel savings are usually in the range of U$20,000 to U$50,000 per month for each new BURNS vaporizer installed, resulting in a very short ROI.
Big fuel savings also means low emissions and smaller carbon footprint for the environmentally responsible operations.
BURNS has a full line of furnaces and auxilliary equipment for the manufacture of ZnO from primary and secondary zinc sources, including melters, vaporizers, launders, tundishes, grit seperator, combustion hoods, etc.
BURNS has developed a proprietary process and custom furnace designs for ZnO producers to maximize their profits through saving fuel and by the development of a process that allows the producer to use secondary zinc as source material.
Thanks to the ultra efficient BURNS furnaces, the fuel savings and increased profits realized by using secondary zinc as feed material, can reduce the equipment ROI for a complete plant from years to just a few months.
BURNS offers a range of engineering services to get you quickly from feasibility to concept, to execution, to production. We supply detail engineering packages for local procurement of substantial portions of the project.
