Air Monitor has released a new White Paper on combustion airflow measurement solutions to help reduce costs with a fully metered system.
Getting Efficient Also Saves Money
This paper discusses one of the primary ingredients to gaining efficiency: combustion airflow. Finding the right air-to-fuel ratio to achieve the lowest emissions with higher efficiency is the ultimate goal. For industrial applications, this may include any of the following equipment types:
- Regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTOs)
- Fired heaters / process heaters
- Solids dryers
- Kilns, and many more
There are challenges associated with combustion systems and particular needs for equipment types. Burner performance and maintenance is one example. Emissions regulations also impact combustion systems in industrial settings.
There are three control options discussed in this paper along with the pros and cons of each method. The three methods discussed are:
- Parallel positioning systems
- Parallel positioning systems with O2 trim
- Fully metered control systems
The paper goes on to discuss the advantages and limitations of these three control schemes and potential emissions regulations that impact the industry.

Air Monitor Solutions
Air Monitor airflow measurement stations provide higher accuracy over shorter lengths of straight duct than competing products. This is achieved by using multi-point averaging pitot tube technology coupled with ultra-low, highly accurate, differential pressure measurement. Another benefit of Air Monitor equipment is the ease with which it can be applied to existing systems. This is feasible with minimal disruption and downtime.
