A BMS manages the gas fired burners on process heaters. The system includes a flame detector and fail-safe mechanisms designed to stop the flow of gas at the pilot and main, and safely shut down the operation until it can be activated again. The BMS can automatically re-light the heater when it's prudent to function and integrates with the system's data acquisition system.

Using a burner management system offers many benefits to the user:

Safety A BMS minimizes the risk of venting natural gas which creates unstable and dangerous situations. With the touch of a button, the systems can be automatically re-lit, and the stakeholder doesn’t have to rely on sending a worker to light the burner using a torch around natural gas; often a precarious situation.

Environmental Aside from the obvious environmental threat from a natural gas explosion, when using a BMS the burner’s increased efficiency reduces greenhouse gas emissions (GHG).

The Bottom Line Reduced gas consumption saves you money and adds cash to your bottom lineIn a pilot-less BMS the pilot fuel can be saved while process efficiency improved. In fact, even without a failure it is common to have the unit pay for itself very quickly. Additionally, by reducing GHG emissions the stakeholder can reduce their carbon credit exposure also.

The benefits of using a Burner
Management System include:

  • Predicted gas savings of circa 12% but usually in excess of this has been achieved
  • Reliably satisfy plant demand. Regardless of your load requirements the system can be set up to respond quickly and effectively.
  • Optimal combustion performance will make minor adjustments to the combustion air damper or variable speed drive controlling a forced draft fan to counteract the reductions in efficiency caused by variations in barometric conditions, stack pressure etc.
  • Safe and reliable operation of your boiler plant
