Industrial Flame Monitoring Applications:

Gas Turbines

Gas Turbines

Gas turbines power much of our world today. To sustain reliable power supply, gas turbine operating conditions must be comprehensively safeguarded to protect productivity, profits and most importantly, lives. Front and center to mitigating risks in the harsh, high-temperature, and high-stakes gas turbine environments are flame sensors. Monitoring combustion flame condition with immediate, automated fuel shut-off for flameouts, is crucial to ensure safe gas turbine operations and prevent potentially catastrophic events. When it comes to flame monitoring, however, all are not created equal.


The high-heat, hard conditions of gas turbine operations inspired the design of dry UV flame monitoring technology. As a result, the technology utilizes remote electronics, eliminates risks of water leaks, reduces water lines and associated costs, simplifies outage activity, and related labor costs. The benefits speak for themselves and the installations are yet another proof point in the adoption of dry, UV flame monitors for gas turbines.


When you put it all together, you begin to see why we are the preferred OEM solution for some of the largest Gas Turbine manufacturers in the world.

Industrial Boilers

Industrial Boilers

Across industrial operations, managing and safeguarding your most critical machinery is a top priority. In plants using fired process equipment (i.e. boilers), these assets are universally regarded as among the most crucial to manage and control. Why? Because safety, productivity, and profitability rely heavily on the proper operation of highly critical fired process equipment.

 

Due to the inherent nature of fired operations, manufacturing conditions are typically harsh, high temperature, and high stakes. Front and center to mitigating risks in the challenging industrial manufacturing environments that employ fired equipment, are flame sensors. Monitoring combustion flame conditions with immediate, automated fuel shut-off for flameouts is crucial to ensure safe operations and prevent potentially catastrophic events.


With our extensive track record in delivering reliable sensors in harsh environments, a track record that sets us apart from the competition with their limited temperature ranges, you can attain real peace of mind when it comes to monitoring your fired process equipment.

Steam Methane Reformers

Steam Methane Reformers

Ideally suited for steam methane reformers, the Flame Tracker Dry FTD325  is especially useful for top-fired systems that produce excessive heat near instrumentation, which can produce a high failure rate. Instrument housing on top of the reformer can reach 150 degrees C, whereas the FTD325 handles temperatures up to 325 degrees C. This ensures that operators always have critical information about the flame in the reformer while reducing high volatility risk and the very real danger of a catastrophic explosion caused by the presence of methane or syngas when the flame is extinguished.

Enclosed Ground Flares

Flame Tracker EGF is designed for use with enclosed ground flares where traditional thermocouples can fail to provide reliable, accurate information due to the system’s slow response and higher failure rate – and in an industry-leading response time. With our Flame Tracker EGF, you can respond to your flame out status in seconds, not minutes. A UV sensor’s line-of-site measurement provides a nearly instantaneous reading of the flare’s pilot status that immediately tells operators that the pilot has been extinguished.


Performance benefits of the Reuter-Stokes Flame Tracker EGF include:

 

  • Provides reliable operation when using virtually any fuel
  • Responds quickly to changes in the pilot flame
  • Easy installation outside the enclosed ground flare 
  • High sensitivity for low-light operation

Industrial Kilns & Ovens

Managing and safeguarding your critical production machinery is always a top priority. In plants using fired process equipment such as kilns and ovens, these assets are often regarded as among the most crucial to manage and control. 

Kiln and oven manufacturing conditions are typically harsh, high temperature, and high stakes. Therefore, durable, rugged flame sensors are crucial to mitigating the risks found in these challenging industrial manufacturing applications. Monitoring these combustion flame conditions with immediate, automated shut-off capabilities is crucial to ensuring safe operations and the prevention of potentially catastrophic events. 

With our extensive track record in delivering reliable sensors in harsh environments, a track record that sets us apart from the competition with their limited temperature ranges, you can attain real peace of mind when it comes to monitoring your fired process equipment.
