Flame tempurature distribution

The flame temperature and its distribution are fundamental properties of the combustion process influencing coal devolatilization, pollutant formation, heat transfer, unburned carbon (LoI) as well as slagging and fouling. Moreover, an unrecognized imbalance of the flame ball position may impose excessive stress on boiler parts leading to premature system failure. Reliable information on the temperature and its distribution are therefore paramount for an optimal boiler operation.

Our instrument is an optical sensor based system specially designed for the application in fossil-fired steam generators to measure the furnace exit gas temperature (FEGT).
