Combustion management solutions provider Autoflame Engineering is delighted to announce that the company has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are among the most prestigious business awards globally, recognising and celebrating business excellence.
Autoflame Engineering, which is distributed by industrial boiler manufacturer Steam Generation and was founded in 1972 by Brendan Kemp, is in its fiftieth year of designing and manufacturing combustion management controls.
It offers precise intelligent control, focused on driving down costs and emissions for both commercial and industrial combustion burners.
The company has successfully exported to more than 140 countries globally, and its installations are successfully supported by a network of “Tech Centres.”
The award, which is valid for the next five years, is in recognition of the Exhaust Gas Analyser (EGA) developed by Autoflame Engineering.
“Research and development is a key element of our business strategy – an ever constant. We invest on an ongoing basis, and that continuity allows us to benefit by delivering tomorrow’s cutting-edge technology today,” says Autoflame Engineering director Steve Kemp.
Kemp adds that “the latest EGA totalises the greenhouse-gas emissions, providing the end-user with an exact carbon footprint. Establishing this data is the first step in a planned reduction of carbon emissions. Our in-house teams are always looking to push our technology to its limit – enabling our customers to benefit from ever more precise controls, which in the current climate of rising fuel costs can represent a significant monetary advantage.”
The EGA monitors exhaust gas emissions to comply with environmental regulations and helps to reduce fuel use and emissions.
The EGA can also be used to feed back its readings to an Autoflame Micro Modulator (MM) boiler controller allowing precise adjustments to be made to the fuel/air ratio (trim) of the burner for optimised performance.
This includes simultaneous and continuous sampling of up to six exhaust gases – O2, CO2, CO, NO, NO2, SO2 – at a fraction of the price of alternative systems. It also enables three-parameter trim control in MM controller for improved fuel efficiency and emission reduction; built-in continuous emission monitoring systems, auditing software, creating user-definable reports based on total weight and volumetric emissions, weight/volumetric emissions per exhaust gas, logging data for up to three years as well as safely setting limits for harmful extract gases.
