Combustion Air Flow Measurement
Combustion Airflow Measurement Applications – A variety of equipment used in industrial applications like boilers, furnaces, etc. are tuned with an optimal air to fuel ratio to improve efficiency and achieve optimal process performance. Measuring airflow is key to finding this ratio and achieving combustion optimization. An optimized system will also result in less maintenance costs over time.
Natural Gas Fired Industrial Boilers and Package Boilers - Although natural gas processes tend to burn cleaner than other fuel types, these boilers do still encounter particulate-laden airflows and may still be subject to emissions regulations where exhausted to the atmosphere.

Power, Biomass, and Recovery Boilers – Regardless of the fuel type used to power the boiler, measuring the airflow into the combustion chamber is necessary to calculate the perfect air to fuel ratio. A system that is running too lean or too rich results in either performance or cost issues.
Heaters, Furnaces, Ovens, and Kilns – Whether for ceramics and glass or annealing and debinding, the industrial sector relies on heat from a variety of sourced burner equipment to perform essential process functions. With some processes requiring extremely high temperatures, fuel costs can become burdensome. Combustion optimization of burner equipment lowers operating costs by increasing efficiencies.
