Combustion Monitoring and Alerting

PSNERGY developed CMA because we know furnaces,
and we know what it takes to get them running correctly.

What is PSNERGY’s Combustion Monitoring and Alerting System?

The CMA system monitors combustion efficiency of radiant tube furnaces in real time. Utilizing the latest sensing technology, cloud computing, wireless communication, and analytic capabilities, the CMA system collects data from the combustion air system as well as each individual radiant tube on the furnace, to continuously record and evaluate combustion efficiency. Reporting services provide actionable data to maintain furnaces in optimal combustion tuning. On demand and real time data, which can be viewed anywhere, from any connected device, allows PSNERGY to provide a complete picture of the furnace combustion system performance. System analytics can identify a component problem, a step change in performance, or a trend. Additional notices can be sent to the customer for immediate corrective actions, ensuring the combustion system is always running optimally, which ensures maximum furnace and process performance.


How does Combustion Monitoring and Alerting impact your operations?

Remote access to combustion data from every radiant tube on the furnace provides significant improvements in Safety, Quality, Delivery and Cost.

Safety

  • Significantly reduces operator, maintenance, and engineer’s exposure to potentially unsafe conditions including high heat, high CO, or oxygen depleted environments.
  • Eliminate manual combustion checks with 100% automated gas sampling. No technician required!
  • Significantly reduces the need for Maintenance Technicians entering the Confined Space of the furnace to check for cracked radiant tubes.
  • Significantly reduces the risk of emission problems due to poor combustion left unchecked for long periods of time.

Quality

  • Drives actions to virtually eliminate poor combustion, which leads to poor furnace performance, nonuniform heating, process variability, and ultimately quality problems.
  • Provides data and reporting that serves as a continuous historical record of combustion quality and process consistency for both internal and external use.

Delivery

  • Provides data to resolve combustion issues quickly, eliminating decreased production caused by poor combustion.
  • Provides data to identify trends and potential component failures proactively, reducing unplanned outages caused by failed MCV’s, Regulators, Valves, Ignition Systems, and Burners.


Cost

  • Provides data to virtually eliminate poor combustion, reducing gas consumption per ton.
  • Provides data to resolve combustion issues causing tube failures and downtime.
  • Provides data to identify cracked radiant tubes, eliminating the loss of atmosphere.
  • Provides data to identify trends and potential component failures proactively, reducing unplanned outages caused by failed MCV’s, Regulators, Valves, Ignition Systems, and Burners.
