The Burner is the key element in the autothermal reforming technology; a good ATR design begins (essentially) from a good burner design.

Casale burner design is based on experience and CFD modeling: The Casale ATR technology allows improved mixing between oxygen and process allowing for a short flame, thus increasing the distance between the flame and the catalytic bed while reducing the overall length of the reactor.

For added safety and to achieve a long operating life, Casale burners are provided with a water cooling system.

The whole burner body, including the tip, is water cooled, thus providing an additional level of safety and fault tolerance for possible unexpected operating condition.
