For over 100 years, Morgan-Isley equipment has been the name to turn to for precise, positive furnace draft control. Today, Morgan-Isley Ejector Stacks eliminate the need for flue dampers or other moving parts in the hot gas waste while substantially reducing stack heights. In addition, they can work hand in hand with modern flue gas cleaning technology.
The Morgan-Isley system, most often used in the Glass, Steel and Aluminum Industries, is a single ejector stack with one “turtleback” reversing valve. Low initial cost and simplified operation make the single stack system the most efficient heat recovery method available for regenerative furnaces.
When these systems are equipped with secondary regenerators, the lost heat storage capacity in the primary due to the accumulation of deposits is regained. As heat absorption in the primary decreases, the secondary receives hotter gases and absorbs more heat, which would otherwise be lost, to the combustion process. This compensation keeps combustion efficiency constant and maintains production efficiency.
Furnace designs, equipment elevations, site conditions and building dimensions can all be accommodated in the design of a Morgan-Isley system, permitting the system to be incorporated into either existing or new installations. Surface provides the full technical design, supply and installation of these systems. Maintenance and refurbishment of existing systems is also provided by Surface.
Surface provides fuel combustion systems, and advice on furnace aerodynamics, port design and auxiliary equipment, as well as full supervision and commissioning services.
- One valve reverses combustion air and furnace exhaust gas flow simultaneously
- Reduces furnace temperature variations
- Reduces reversal time
- Very compact
- Eliminates need for flue dampers to control furnace pressure
- Provides positive draft control
- Permits substantially reduced stack heights
- Can operate with flue gas cleaning
- Increases fuel efficiency when combines with a primary in a properly designed system
- Reduces thermal shock at the primary arches during reversal
- Permits a reduction in primary size, saving in both installation and maintenance costs, without a loss of combustion air preheat
