Regeneration uses a pair of burners which cycle to alternately heat the combustion air or recover and store the heat from the furnace exhaust gases. When one regenerative burner is firing, the other is exhausting the furnace gases. Exhaust gases pass through the regenerative burner body and into a media case which contains refractory material.
The refractory media is heated by the exhaust gases, thus recovering and storing energy from the flue products. When the media bed is fully heated, the regenerative burner currently firing is turned off and begins to exhaust the flue products.
The regenerative burner with the hot media bed begins firing. Combustion air passes through the media bed and is heated by the hot refractory. This provides much higher air preheat temperatures within the furnace, resulting in exceptionally high thermal efficiency.
