Technology for Combustion

Jump to Category: Data Logging | Flame Monitoring

Zintronix brand combustion components and accessories are engineered to arm you with the latest in controls thinking. Through the years, combustion systems have become more ambitious, and safeties have grown to help protect property and personnel. As the complexity of the myriad systems composing a furnace or oven increases, there’s a greater need for elegant technology that helps operators, maintenance technicians, engineers, and managers cut through the fog. Zintronix provides products to do just that.

Data Logging

There has never been an easy way to monitor and record temperature trends in a furnace — until now. The Zintronix ZI-808 is a web-based data logger with a mind-boggling array of functional possibilities. ZI-808 boasts eight differential and isolated analog input channels programmable as voltage or thermocouple measurement per channel, four pulse input channels programmable as count, frequency, or discrete function per channel, and four real-time discrete alarm output channels with email/text notification. Monitor thermocouple input and set alarm parameters to notify you via text or email when things get a little too hot or aren’t quite hot enough. Log-in to the unit remotely from anywhere in the world via the Internet to view data or change settings. Store data to local or remote FTP/SFTP file servers, a local server, USB drive, or a range of email addresses. All data acquired by the ZI-808 are time- and date-stamped so you can easily correlate recorded measurements with the precise moment they occurred.

Flame Monitoring

UV sensors are a popular way to monitor burner flame, but many who have used them know that sometimes they need a little help. In systems with multiple burners, where some burners are lit while others are not, it’s common to encounter faults due to a UV sensor “seeing” flame during trial for ignition, because the burner against the opposite wall is firing. Similarly, in situations where a furnace door is open, shop welders, lights, or daylight pouring through windows, can cause an errant “flame on” signal. This is where the Z-Swivel comes in handy. This convenient swivel fitting allows you to dial-in an angle that removes these unwanted UV sources from the sensor’s view.

Another issue sometimes encountered with UV sensors is excess heat at the furnace wall. Since sensors are necessarily mounted near the furnace, the only remedy for overheated UV sensors has been the introduction of cooling air, which is not always sufficient. Zintronix has another idea. The Z-Scope is a periscope for UV sensors, constructed from stainless steel to discourage heat conduction. The Z-Scope is not an off-the-shelf item, but rather is engineered according to your specific needs.

  • Use the ZI-808 From the Internet
    One of the most exciting features of the ZI-808 is its built-in web server. Its user interface is designed like a standard web page and embedded into the instrument. That means that any device that can open a web page can use it. Desktop, laptop, tablet, smart phone, Android, Windows, iOS, Linux, Edge, IE, Chrome, Firefox. read full post
