Flame Scanners



Large Boilers such as those used in conjunction with steam turbines for electric power generation, are fired by fuels such as coal, oil or gas. Auxiliary support burners and/or ignitors are typically associated with each of the main burners. Flame scanners are required to monitor the boiler fires in order to detect the presence or absence of flame in a specific burner or boiler region. If flames are extinguished in a particular region of the boiler, then a no flame condition must be quickly identified.

Fossil Power Systems Inc. (FPS) has developed a complete line of flame scanners which can be used in scanning all types of fuels in all types of industrial applications. An FPS flame scanner can be used to reliably verify the presence or absence of flame associated with a particular burner or ignitor in a boiler (or with a particular level of burners in tangentially fired units).
