LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD) will feature its new Transient Heating oxy-fuel burner, the world's only smart burner technology using a sensor-driven control strategy to deliver more uniform heating in reverb furnaces, at CastExpo 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia, from April 27-30.
