Abstract The benefits of oxygen enriched air for improving combustion efficiency and overall productivity in industrial heating applications is well documented, however the adoption of this technology by industry has been very limited due to the high costs of delivered oxygen or on-site generation. An advanced hollow fiber membrane technique for on-site oxygen generation has been developed which holds promise of being the most cost-effective method of generating up to 40% oxygen enriched air. In this paper, the factors which affect the economics and power requirements of this membrane air separation process are discussed. These factors include intrinsic membrane properties, mode of operation, scale of operation, temperature and oxygen concentration. In addition, the general advantages of membrane systems over alternative oxygen generation schemes are discussed.
