FAQ: Connecting Electrode Adapters to Ignition Cable

Q: I’m having trouble getting a good connection on the barbed fittings in my TZI transformers and electrode boots. What is the best method to connect ignition cable to these items? A: The TZI Transformers and many of the Electrode Adapters offered by Elster Kromschröder use a barbed fitting, also called a “spearlock anchor,” to Read More

FAQ: Burner Control Units – Flame Signal Strength

Q: I’ve got a PF-19 flame safety system incorporating PFU 760 burner control cards, and I keep faulting-out. It seems to be due to loss of flame signal, but I can visually verify flame. How do I check the flame signal on my PFUs? What could be causing this problem? A: Elster Kromschröder burner controls Read More

FAQ: Ignition Electrodes for Pilot and Industrial Burners

Q: I need some new spark ignitors for my burners. Is that something that I can buy from Combustion 911? A: Combustion 911 carries stock of the components required to create ignition electrodes (also called “spark ignitors”) and ionization electrodes (also called “sense electrodes” or “flame-rods”) for a wide range of Elster Kromschröder pilot and Read More

FAQ: Electrode Adapters and Interference Suppression for Pilot and Industrial Burners

Q: I need to replace a few of the connectors that allow the ignition cable to interface with the spark plugs. Can you explain the differences between the various types you carry? Specifically, when should you use “interference suppressed” models? A: The electrode connectors you’re referring to are also typically called “electrode adapters,” “spark plug Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – Pulse-fire Pitfalls

Through our discussions regarding equipment selection, you’ve learned that pulse-fire requires solenoid valves with extremely high operating cycles, burners that light reliably, and some method of impulse control. Through dozens of installations, our technicians have encountered and overcome a number of additional pitfalls, which can derail even the best planned system. Oversized Burners A common Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – Pulse-fire Implementation

Now that you’re familiar with the history, ideas, and benefits of pulse-fire, it’s time to look at implementation. Knowing what you do about the demands that pulse-firing exacts upon components, you want to make sure to get the most for your money, so you don’t wind-up spending your fuel savings on replacements. ValVario Kromschröder’s valVario Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – Pulse-fire Equipment

Not all combustion equipment is suitable for pulse-firing. Some of the key equipment requirements for a successful pulse-fire installation include: operating cycles in excess of one million, capability of three cycles per minute, and repeatability. Solenoid Valve Operating Cycles In traditional, modulating systems, gas solenoids open during start-up and remain open during furnace operation. Unless Read More

Pulse-Fire 101 – An Introduction to Pulse-fire Combustion Systems

Improve your bottom line, lower your operating costs, increase your product quality, and do your part to reduce greenhouse gases. How? By using pulse-fire to transform your industrial furnace! What is Pulse-fire? More than anything else, pulse-fire is a method of introducing heat into a gas-fired furnace. Traditional modulating systems use valves to control the Read More
