REPLACEMENT BURNERS ON POWDER COATING OVENS

Burners for Powder Coating Ovens

The customer required the replacement of the gas fired burners on powder ovens as the existing burners were obsolete and were proving difficult to repair and source components.

JBC offered a modern and more efficient process burner that was capable of achieving up to a 10:1 turndown on the ovens, along with a new temperature controller which allowed for a more accurate oven temperature control.

JBC installed and commissioned six new and more efficient burners on the pre-treatment and oven processes. This included the removal of existing combustion equipment, preparing the ovens before mounting the burners, connecting them up both mechanically and electrically and testing the system.

THE SAVINGS:

  • Fuel savings were in the region of 20% through the installation of the latest burner design and the use of a solid state ratio control system.
  • Less downtime resulted due to the rapid fault diagnostics and communications 
  • Lower emissions were emitted due to the better nozzle design and close combustion control.
  • Lower spares needed holding as the majority of parts are compatible with existing units on site.

Fuel: Natural Gas     Burner Operation: Modulating Gas & Air     Gas Pressure: Maximum 40 mbar

‘There are never any problems, only solutions’

Shaun Wilkinson, Services Manager of Stelrad was so impressed with the work carried out, he sent     JBC the following correspondence:

‘The feedback from the completed installations is very positive, from the planning stage all the way     to the commissioning stage.

The service has been excellent, from the office to the installation engineers. The communication throughout has been first class, and enthusiasm from the installation team is a credit to JBC.

There are never any problems, only solutions’.
