BCS fire power control

The BCS® fire output control ensures optimum, complete combustion and boiler efficiency. The decisive factor here is the perfectly harmonised coordination of the fuel feed, the grate movement and the combustion air supply and flue gas recirculation. Building on a stable fuel bed in the combustion chamber, we achieve a calming of the aggregates and measured values with our control system. Vibrations are reduced, resulting in a higher average output while maintaining the same limits. This stable driving mode enables operation without exceeding the limit values.

This means that little or no manual intervention is necessary during normal operation. You benefit from greater fuel flexibility and an overarching increase in efficiency. You can also expect higher output with the same material input. The problem-free handling of changing fuel quality increases flexibility in fuel purchasing.
