Thermal Mass Flow Meters from Fox Thermal solve air-to-fuel tuning problems of burner control and combustion applications as companies strive for reducing energy costs. Mass flow meter combustion solutions:
The boiler control system will need to be monitored for the fuel flow of natural gas and the airflow to each burner to optimize performance of the boiler. A mass flow rate of each flow helps maintenance engineers calculate optimal air-to-fuel ratios.
Monitoring and adjusting air-to-fuel ratios to maintain optimum combustion processes not only conserves fuel but also helps reduce emissions. Instrumentation like thermal mass flow meters are the ideal technology for ease of use.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Program (www.eere.energy.gov) has identified improved thermal combustion in burner control systems as a significant opportunity for reducing energy costs, waste, and emissions.
One of the most effective techniques for improving efficiency and reducing emissions in these applications is a precise control strategy, based on mass flow measurement of fuel and airflow rates.
Sophisticated burner management systems optimize air/fuel ratio control to obtain peak thermal efficiency over the entire range of the burner, and to facilitate proactive emissions control.
Fox Thermal flow meters are often calibrated to measure combustion process gases like air and natural gas. To determine which meter is right for your application, click the "Help Me Choose a Flow Meter" button below to get a recommendation.
Mass flow control of air and fuel is used to automatically correct for changes in temperature or pressure that affect combustion performance. Many systems also integrate fuel totalizing, air/fuel flow and valve position analog outputs for DCS interfacing and remote system monitoring.
Thermal mass flow meters from Fox Thermal measure gas mass flow directly, with no need for additional hardware and interface easily with exiting systems. Fox Thermal products are designed for use in fuel gas and air feed lines found in process heating and utility operations thus giving the user maximum control in optimizing their process.
