Since BFI Automation launched the first compact flame controller for continuous operation in 1990, we have been working continuously on optimising this technology. The compact flame controller combine the former system consisting of sensor and amplifier in one housing. The compact flame controller is connected directly to the burner control or control system. This eliminates the need for additional space for the amplifier/monitor and the associated cabling. Compact flame controller are therefore not only suitable for new equipment, but especially for retrofits or conversions.
Through various sensors and expansion stages, BFI Automation offers the right and most suitable compact flame controller for every area of application.
Whether single burners with different fuels or multi-burner systems as in large power plants with bus systems, we always offer the right solution.
Almost all compact flame controller can be supplied with fibre optic technology and/or for explosion protection in zone 1 or 2.
BFI Automation supplies the appropriate flame monitoring systems for all fuels and fuel combinations. Systems from the Flamonitec 3000 series as well as from the Flamonitec compact flame controller series CFCx000 or CFCx00 are used for this purpose.
BFI Automation has been a leader in the field of flame monitoring on gas turbines of all well-known manufacturers worldwide for decades. Whether original equipment or retrofit, BFI Automation supplies perfect solutions for all requirements with the Flamonitec systems.
Flame monitoring for chemical & petrochemical industry
BFI Automation supplies fuel-independent flame scanners for all combustion processes in petrochemical plants, such as sulfur recovery plants (Claus process), cracking furnaces, heat treatments, energy recoveries, slurry incinerations, etc.
Incineration in waste treatment plants places high demands on regulation. In addition to environmental aspects, the focus of the plant operator is of course on economic efficiency. Here it is important to make optimal use of resources. The ideal firing rate control receives its input signals directly from the combustion.
Whether hydrogen or other alternative fuels, BFI Automation is actively working on the development of suitable sensor technology for the safe and reliable monitoring of combustion processes with special challenges.
