Six meter burner lance with a fifteen meter flame

Share This Post

Earlier this fall we’ve had the pleasure of servicing one of the six meter long burner lances used in LKAB in Kiruna.

The burner lance might be long, measuring 6 meters from bottom to top, but the flame it produces is even longer. Fifteen meters to be exact. The burner lance we’ve serviced is one of many of this type delivered to LKAB. They have been in use for many years in their rotary kilns in KK2, KK4 and in the pelletizing plant in Svappavaara.

This burner lance has an effect of 42 megawatts and has good combustion with both light and thick oil. In LKAB’s pelletizing plants, they are being used as start and support burners inside their coal combustors. The burner lance with the longest flame we have made so far, measure 19 meter. That burner, too, was created for LKAB.
