Our Regenerative burner retrofits allow the capability to increase fuel efficiency and emissions improvements to existing furnaces.

Nutec Bickley provides high technology heat recovery systems with the use of Regenerative burners for aluminum melting furnaces, Forge Furnaces and other applications.

Regenerative Burners recover waste heat from furnace exhaust gases and preheat combustion air to significantly increase efficiency over conventional burners or recuperative burners.

The Regenerative system allows greater use of the furnace exhaust gases to improve the efficiency of existing equipment and also allows the exhaust system to be smaller than a conventional furnace.

Our Regenerative Burners provide 40-70% fuel savings over many existing systems.

Industrial kiln benefiting from the best technology


With our SCADA systems, the furnace operators are able to have complete control of their heating and thermal treating processes, enhancing efficiency and productivity. Our latest Industry 4.0 developments integrate the latest technology to not only monitor the process, but also to keep the furnace operating in its peak performance with smart maintenance technology. All the data generated during the heating and thermal treating processes is stored in our SCADA system, which then is used to generate reports, graphs and intelligence data, to help customers in their decision making process.

Why Nutec Bickley?

  • We have the ability to take the burner technology available and incorporate the entire system to an existing furnace with all of the detailed engineering, installation and technical support required for this system.
  • Each system is customizable to the customer's needs and physical limitations with our design team at a lower cost than the equipment manufacturers.
  • Detailed engineering and installation of the complete system for a turnkey solution.

  • Customizable PLC software to allow better control and maintenance of this advanced system.
  • By taking our ability to integrate the PLC control system and customize it to your needs the regenerative fired equipment can provide as much detailed information and technical support to allow your maintenance department to understand all aspects of the operation. This allows your equipment to be maintained in optimal conditions.
