ABB AbilityTM flame scanners
ABB Ability flame scanners are designed to detect and control burner flames across a variety of fuels, providing the accurate quality and temperature assessments your power plant and industrial operators need to be constantly aware of any unstable combustion situations.
With real-time data on DC intensity, flicker frequency, AC amplitude, quality and flame management, you can assess individual burner safety and combustion parameters, such as air-to-fuel ratio and NOx emissions, to help prevent hazards and develop advanced and efficient boiler combustion control strategies.
Suitable for both retrofit and greenfield installation, our flame scanners are operational within minutes of plug-in, and are developed to help industries comply with the most stringent safety and emission control regulatory standards.
- Prevent harmful hazards and avoid major plant shutdown that can amount to considerable financial liability
– Gain reliable flame information in multi-fuel and waste gas combustion plants that can increase the boiler turndown ratio without addition of expensive fuel support
- Access qualitative information (e.g., Temperature, flicker frequency, DC intensity, AC amplitude, etc.) to fine-tune combustion parameters
