All flame scanners, in conjunction with a Series 3000 flame controller, form a complete flame monitoring system. The Flame Monitoring and Evaluation System 3000 has been developed with safety progress and optimum plant availability in mind. The aim is to monitor combustion plants safely and reliably and to provide criteria for optimising the combustion process and reducing pollutant emissions. The system is able to distinguish the flames of different burners in a combustion chamber and thus to monitor them selectively.
Due to the very robust, wear-free sensor technology and the fully electronic shutter, the flame monitoring system is almost maintenance-free and enables many years of reliable firing operation. The flame monitoring system 3000 includes different flame controller in 19″ plug-in technology. They contain all the control logic and provide the signals for external processing.
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.
