Ignitor Controls and Control Interface
FPS offers custom Ignitor Control Packages designed
to control and monitor ignitor operation, while interfacing with
the Burner Management System (BMS). Control cabinets may be supplied
with preprogrammed controllers or with devices wired to field
terminals for connection to another control system.
Preprogrammed FPS ignitor controls incorporate
tried and proven ignitor control schemes to ensure optimum ignitor
performance. The FPS controls are customized to interface with
existing burner controls, receiving start, stop, and permit signals
from the BMS, and providing ignitor status signals to the BMS.
Control Cabinet / Valve
Fossil designs and manufactures custom control cabinet/valve train
assemblies to control and supply oil and/or gas fuel to ignitors.
Valve trains are available for oil and/or gas fuels,
and are constructed using FPS automatic valve assemblies. Each
valve train is pressure tested and includes factory installed
instrument air lines complete to bulkhead, and wiring between
the valve train components and the control cabinet.
Single Ignitor Assemblies
FPS designs and manufactures a compact ignitor control cabinet/valve
assembly especially designed for installations where it is preferable
to have one control cabinet per ignitor, as is traditional on
Combustion-Engineering (C-E) tangentially-fired boilers. This
assembly offers the same advantages as mentioned above in the
Control Cabinet/Valve Trains section.
The single ignitor control cabinet/valve assembly
features cabinet mounted valves to supply fuel and atomizing air
(for oil ignitors) to the ignitor being controlled by the cabinet.
