Burner Tuning

Numerous checks can be made to ensure a combustion system is operating safely and at peak efficiency. Some of these points include the following:

  • Inspect burners, regulators, and control valves for wear or damage. In addition to mechanical devices, burners wear and degrade.
  • Periodically inspect burner internals for accumulated dirt and debris, wear, soot, excessive oxidation, or warping—attention to gas nozzles, mixing plates, and other bluff bodies.
  • Provide clean combustion air. Maintain air filters and review combustion air sources to ensure they are fresh and contaminant-free.
  • While regular visual flame inspections may detect changes in operation, correctly setting burner gas and airflow cannot accurately be performed by flame color, shape, or size. Proper testing and proper tuning require accurate measurements.
  • Understand that burners and systems interact. Correct settings on both are essential to verifying proper burner operation. When possible, burner measurements and adjustments should be performed under normal operating conditions.
  • Measure fuel and combustion air pressures and create a monthly log of readings. Historic measurements can indicate trends and aid in future diagnostics.
  • Regular flue gas readings can detect changes in burner systems early, allowing for adjustments before operations drift too far from optimal. Well-tuned combustion systems tend to have stable oxygen and flue gas constituents. A newly detected variation could indicate a burner setting or system condition has recently changed.
  • Burner air/fuel ratios are essential. Blindly adding fuel to create more heat from a rich flame will not work and could be detrimental. Air and fuel adjustments should be performed in tandem from known starting points.

Importance of Regular Maintenance

Learning about and acting upon the potential dangers of valve safety trains and scheduling annual inspections helps reduce risks and improve safety in your organization.

A valve safety train controls the flow of fuel into thermal processing equipment. The connected burner properly oxidizes the mixture by maintaining the desired ratio of fuel and air, safely releasing the energy needed to heat your furnaces, boilers, HVAC heaters, thermal oxidizers, and other equipment. The thermal process equipment performs critical production tasks such as drying gypsum boards, roasting and baking foods, heat-treating metals, fluid heating, and pollution control.

Due to hazardous vapors and gases, poorly designed or inadequately maintained trains have led to catastrophic incidences. You can significantly reduce the potential for accidents by getting regular safety inspections.

24x7 Support

To help organizations needing emergency support, Rockford Combustion offers 24×7 technical support. Call when encountering an unplanned downtime incident.

In manufacturing, the financial cost of downtime can be significant. Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) estimates the average downtime lasts approximately 1.5 hours, while other studies suggest a higher average of three to four hours. Factoring in idle employees, lost production, equipment repairs, catch-up over time, potential fines and lawsuits, and other variables, calculations put the typical downtime costs to industrial manufacturers between $30,000 and $50,000+ per hour.

Rockford Combustion will be there to support your needs.
