Improved energy efficiency

Published:  07 May, 2014

GP_burners_PR_GPB_02_image.jpgSwindon based combustion equipment manufacturer, G P BURNERS, has launched a digital burner control and variable speed drive (VSD) conversion initiative. Under the programme, the company says its extensive range of analogue controlled gas fired burners may be retrofitted with a digital conversion package and VSD.

The company claims that the retrofit is capable of fuel savings of between 3% and 6%, dependent upon the existing control. The digital conversion provides for precise actuator positioning and repeatability, with the digital servomotor accurate to 0.1 degree of rotation, for more efficient combustion systems

The conversion also reduces fan motor power consumption by up to 50% for further energy savings. The reduction in burner on/off cycling and the fact that there are no linkages on the digital servomotors result in is less wear and tear.
