Tiltable Virtual Lance Burner

Tiltable Virtual Lance Burner

The oxygen injection tools by BSE are designed to reduce your production costs and enhance your productivity.   

Sidewall mounted devices for oxygen injection in melting and refining phase.

The Tiltable VLB (T-VLB) with vertical tilting motion provides different injection angles to meet various process requirements and runs with gas or oil. 


  • Pipe-in-pipe concept
  • Multiple point installation of T-VLB
  • Tilting motion of the VLB to meet different process requirements
  • Adjustable between from
    • 20° (optimal burner angle) to 40° (optimal lancing angle)
  • Actuation via hydraulic cylinder
  • Highest possible energy transfer into scrap and steel
  • Usable as single tool and in combination with further BSE energy input tools:
    • Lance Manipulator or LM.2
    • Post Combustion
    • CarbJet
  • Control and visualiziation via latest HMI
  • Different adjustable flame types according to process stage


  • Easy handling
  • Quick and easy maintenance
  • Modular concept of water-cooled copper boxes allowing also for usage of solid material injectors (e.g CarbJet®)
  • Functional for all types of Electric Arc Furnaces
  • VLB runs on all fuels (oil and gas) – also special gases applicable.
  • Compatibility with various input materials, operation types and steel grades.
  • Union nuts for infinitely adjustable positioning of hoses and backfiring devices
  • Increased burner and lancing efficiency at reduced refractory consumption.


  • Over 16 installations worldwide
  • From low carbon to high carbon steel
  • Marked leader at stainless steel furnaces
  • Tested and proven at BSW since 2012, the steel plant of the Badische Group – one of the world’s most productive operations
