Combustion Systems in Detail
Direct fired boilers are all installed with combustion systems. The boiler type, size, industry and available fuels will dictate what type of combustion system is installed, however in principle all will have the following main components:
- Ignition Equipment
- Flame Supervision Devices
- Fuel Oil or Fuel Gas Train, complete with shut off valves, and pressure monitoring
- Burner Management System
A burner in its most simple definition is a mixing device. It needs to mix fuel with air to allow heat release. While it is easy to burn fuels, ensuring that the burner can keep a flame stable throughout a range of inputs, ensure the fuel is completely combusted, provides a flame which will fit within a given space, mixes the fuel so that emission limits are not exceeded and ensures the burner will not self-destruct, means the design and control is rather complex and considerable amounts of time and money have been invested, and still are, to provide combustion systems which satisfy all of the above requirements.
