Application for BCU 460 Burner Control Unit Modulating-controlled burner
Control: ON/OFF/Continuous

The external control system moves the butterfly valve for air to ignition position. The burner starts at low-fire rate, and a regulator controls the burner capacity via the butterfly valve for air after the operating state has been signalled.
Application for BCU 460 Burner Control Unit Two-stage-controlled burner ("L" products)

The BCU supports the cooling and purging processes. The burner starts at low-fire rate. When the operating status is reached the BCU advises the control unit. The PLC can now pulse the air valve in order to control the burner capacity.
Application for BCU 460 Burner Control Unit Single-stage-controlled radiant tube burner ("L" products)
Control: ON/OFF

The BCU supports the cooling and purging processes.
