Why Use a Burner Management System

The Power of a Burner Management System

Burner management systems (BMS) are considered a secret weapon to the overall performance and efficiency of industrial and commercial heating processes. When using a BMS you have precise control of startups and shutdowns, temperature monitoring, and detecting main flame and pilot flame efficiencies and deficiencies. Profire products have earned the trust of industry leaders because we deliver improved onsite safety, increased efficiency, and enhanced compliance, but let’s not forget the huge impact our products will have on your bottom line.

Discover The Wide Range of Industrial Uses of a BMS

Many commercial and industrial settings consider a burner management system as a must-have for increased onsite safety and efficiency of their heating appliances. These include but are not limited to:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Power Generation
  • Mining
  • BioTech
  • Petrochemical and Refining
  • Renewables
  • Landfill
  • Agriculture
  • Municipal
  • Food and Beverage
  • Construction and Infrastructure
  • Pulp and Paper

Choosing The Right BMS For Your Application

There are two variations of burner management systems:

  1. Automated
  2. Manual

Automated systems require very little human intervention to run properly. Aside from initial commissioning, setup, and regular maintenance, an automated system will function independently. Manual systems require more interaction onsite for starting and stopping the burners when system failures arise. This includes the dangerous task of manually lighting the pilot light during the startup process.

At Profire our team has designed comprehensive automated solutions for the diverse applications of industries we serve. Our PF3100 Serires, PF2200 Series, and PF2100 Series are designed to allow for multiple customizable configurations depending on your specific use. Each system is composed of variations of a controller, sensors, actuators, fuel trains, and flame arrestors. They can be configured with a number of safety features including flame failure detection, high-temperature shutoff, and low-oxygen shutoff. All of these enhancements allow for increased workplace safety by preventing fires, explosions, and other hazardous incidents. By decreasing wasted substances and implementing effective processes, industries also benefit from a reduction in emissions.

Experience The Benefits of Using a BMS

Using a Profire BMS for your heating appliance will provide you with increased safety, reliability, code compliance, and productivity. With precise control of temperature and fuel inputs, there will be a significant decrease in the number of system shutdowns due to malfunctioning or failing equipment. By incorporating a BMS into your industrial heating process, you will reduce emissions by limiting the amount of waste due to uncontrolled shutdowns or failures. Your equipment will be loaded with monitoring devices that will regulate temperature controls, fuel trains, control valves, and switches, resulting in improved efficiency and limited unnecessary emissions.
