With the increasing awareness of energy conservation and
environmental protection that are happening around the world,
natural gas is widely recognized as a clean energy source with high
combustion value and causes no pollution. Natural gas has higher
combustion temperature compared to the traditional diesel, 15-30%
faster heat-up speed than diesel and 20-25% higher energy
consumption efficiency than diesel.
Using diesel and heavy oil as heating method for homogenizing
furnace causes problems such as low heating efficiency, large
energy consumption, negative impacts on aluminum rod or other
products. Countries in Eastern Europe or Central Asian have
abundant natural gas resources. Generally, natural gas is
recommended as the fuel for homogenizing furnaces.
