Burner consumption measurement with all-in-one flowmeter
Pressure and temperature compensated flow measurement benefits plant safety
The operation of a burner requires a huge amount of energy and is therefore costly. Continuous monitoring of the natural gas consumption of the burner is necessary to always allow the burning process to be as efficient as possible. Another measuring objective of the burner consumption measurement is to determine maintenance requirements early on and carry out furnace overhauls according to schedule. In glass melting processes the soot level has an impact on the performance of a burner which can cause an unexpected interruption.
Intelligent OPTISWIRL Vortex flowmeters with integrated pressure measurement always indicate the static pressure and furnace overhauls can be scheduled accordingly. This leads to a significant increase in plant safety.
