Introduction


COMBUSTION OPTIMIZATION

COMBUSTION OPTIMIZATION PRODUCTS & SOLUTIONS

United Process Controls (UPC) offers Solutions that significantly lower fuel consumption, maintenance costs and emissions. They are used in high temperature environments such as furnaces, boilers, incinerators, power plants, fired heaters, kilns, etc. These simple engineered solutions are composed of a reference air box, a Oxymit transmitter or Protherm 20 controller, and an Oxyfire Oxygen Sensor.

Benefits from controlling combustion are immediate and calculable. Installation of the Oxyfire high temperature Oxygen Analyzer in the Hot Zone allows you to monitor and control your combustion process, exactly where it makes sense to control it!

A 2% reduction of excess air in a combustion process lowers fuel consumption by up to 4%! With the same excess air reduction, NOx emissions can be reduced by up to 40%. With our zero and span capabilities, your company may even be able to satisfy your environmental regulatory obligations.



TYPICAL APPLICATIONS/INDUSTRIES:


STEEL REHEAT

The Oxyfire in-situ oxygen sensor measures the excess oxygen and allows the reheat furnace operator to observe and control the amount of air used in the combustion process. - For optimizing your ConSteel™ lines with our novel solution.

ALUMINIUM MELTING

Measure the excess oxygen during the melt process to increase quality and decrease fuel costs. more info

PROCESS CHEMICAL

Increase production and lower operating costs with in-situ oxygen analysis for reactors such as sulphur burners. For more information please contact us directly.

POWER GENERATION

Center the fireball in the radiant zone and "balance" the boiler.
