Arctic Heat - a burner technology developed for industries

Arctic Heat is a burner solution ideal for burning waste oil and other liquid fuels, including diesel, HFO no. 6, turpentine and tall oil. Our technology utilizes a high-pressure fuel system for atomization, reducing the required atomizing air, making our burner better and more efficient than other options on the market. Our clients testify decreased fuel cost, less unburnt fuel and less NOx in the exhaust, since they installed our burners.

High pressure technology

The combustion technology that we have developed uses a high fuel pressure for fuel atomization. It reduces the need for atomizing air while improving fuel economy and reducing the NOx in the exhaust.


Our burners are equipped with an easy-to-handle interface that allows you to monitor, control and optimize the burners for your use. It features a touch screen, and functions include starting and stopping burners, monitor oil, air and temperature data.

Our burners also have a safety bridge that always keeps burner operation in a safe state. For example, to stop the fuel pump to prevent explosions if no ignition occurs.

Applications for the Arctic Heat burner system

The Arctic Heat burner can be used within many different industrial processes. It has become a popular choice for industrial furnaces, smelters, PS converters, refractory dry-outs, rotary kilns and many others. Much because of its effective combustion and reduced fuel consumption.

Arctic heat in industrial furnaces

An industrial furnace is used to provide heat for a process within many types of industries. Furnace designs vary depending on the use of the furnace.

With Arctic Heat burners installed in an industrial furnace – the high pressure fuel and pressurized air optimizes the fuel consumption and thus reduces costs, making the furnace more efficient than before.

Arctic heat in PS Converters

One of the most common converter within metallurgical smelting is the PS converter. Such a converter has two belts of tuyeres coming along the axis on either sides of the converter.

Our customers often highlight the fact that the Arctic Heat burner lance can be inserted and installed through the tuyeres of their PS converters. Easy installation means shorter downtimes and more efficient processes. 

Arctic Heat burner for Rotary Kilns

The Arctic Heat burner functions perfect within rotary kilns. Our customers testify that our burner technology improves energy recovery and results in lower emissions and better cost efficiency. We also achieve a very long flame to distribute the heat effectively. Our customers use Arctic Heat for a wide variety of applications within a rotary kiln, as production burner, tempered pre-heat (TPH), Down draft drying (DDD), Pre-heat (PH) and for firing zone in travelling grates.

Refractory Dry-out

The low amounts of unburnt fuel in the exhaust increases brick lifespan. One customer reduced unburnt fuel from 1000ppm to 50-80ppm.

Specifications and details​

Arctic heat burner lance

We have developed a nozzle with a unique swirling chamber and needle design. The unique design utilizes high fuel pressure and pressurized air to achieve very good atomization which results in an efficient combustion. All without any moving parts!

With this simple and sturdy design – maintenance is hassle free and it’s easy to disassemble the burner lance when you need to replace damaged or worn parts.

This burner lance is manufactured from high temperature steel and comes in 4 standard diameters: 26, 38, 50 and 70 mm. Length starting from 0,2 m, according to customer specfikations.

Arctic heat pump rack

The Arctic heat pump rack connects directly to the plant oil supply (low pressure) and is responsible for supplying one or more burners with high pressure oil and pressurized air.

Our pump rack is built with VFD*-powered pumps that enables fine grained control down to 10% of maximum capacity. It increases both reliability and efficiency. The pump rack consists of three main sections: low pressure oil, high pressure oil and pressurized air.

The pump rack can be placed away from actual burners.

Burner control and HMI

We have developed an interface that allows you to monitor, control and optimize the burners for your use. It features a touch screen, and functions include starting and stopping burners, monitor oil, air and temperature data.

Our burners also have meet all legal requirements with a safety bridge that always keeps burner operation in a safe state. For example, to stop the fuel pump to prevent explosions if no ignition occurs.

Standard features for Arctic Heat 

       Capacity from 0.2 to 70MW.

       Size from 26 to 70mm and length from 0.2m up to several meters in length.

       No moving parts other than the pump and valve.

       Fine grain control down to 10% of design maximum. e. g. a 3MW burner can deliver 0.3-3MW.

       Coupled to your plant control system via any common bus or controlled via our touch screen HMI.

       Lower NOx emissions

       Lower unburnt fuel emissions

Supplements for Arctic Heat

We have solutions for automatic ignitors which are capable of handling big variations in temperature.

In some burner applications it is necessary to cool the burner lance to secure operation and improve durability. Sometimes pressurized air is enough otherwise we provide water coolers for our burners.

Sufficient air supply is required for effective combustion. We have developed a air injector to solve that problem

For monitoring and/or re-ignite the burner we provide flame sensors.

When pre-heating fuel is required we offer a heater for that purpose.
