Until today, wire annealing furnaces were almost exclusively heated directly with cold air burners. In most cases, several cold air burners are installed in the individual zones and the furnace temperature is controlled by proportional operation of these burners.

The Künne Stahldrahtwerk in Hemer has now ordered a new furnace with an innovative design. Highly efficient WS REKUMAT® burners of different design and inputs will comprise the heating system. Thanks to the FLOX® technology, all burners are capable of being operated with natural gas as well as hydrogen with very high efficiency and lowest emissions.

With this new project, the Künne Group is continuing its comprehensive commitment to environmental protection while investing in the long-term future of its plant portfolio. Due to the decades of experience at WS Wärmeprozesstechnik GmbH with feed gases containing hydrogen as well as the patented FLOX® technology, it is possible to design modern heating systems that are already today prepared for the future with alternative fuels.


Thermprocess 2023

Highly efficient, flexible and with the lowest emissions in the industry. These are the burner products that WS will present to the trade public at Thermprocess 2023.

Once again, WS sets the tone when it comes to modern gas heating: fuel-flexible, efficient and low-emission across the entire product range.


Green hydrogen from slurry and manure

Green hydrogen from slurry and manure: The biogas route offers great potential for regional value creation and security of supply. The commissioning and presentation of the pilot plant took place on 28.10.2022.


Green hydrogen and ammonia

The expansion of the WS laboratory infrastructure enables advanced developments in the field of hydrogen utilization and ammonia splitting.
