Founded in 1972 by Brendan Kemp, Autoflame Engineering, now in its 50th year, designs and manufactures combustion management systems. These systems offer precise intelligent control, focused on driving down costs and emissions for both commercial and industrial burners.
The company has successfully exported to more than 50 countries worldwide, and its installations are successfully supported by its network of over 140 Tech Centres.
The award, its fourth, is in recognition of the company’s Mk8 EGA Evo, an Exhaust Gas Analyser (EGA). The EGA monitors exhaust gas emissions to comply with environmental regulations and help to reduce fuel usage and emissions. With a controls and burner upgrade, customers can see a reduction of fuel bills, with a typical saving of 10-15%.
The Mk8 EGA EVO completes Autoflame’s product portfolio delivering a considerable competitive advantage by providing closed loop trimming of the burner’s combustion process, to maintain peak efficiency and at the same time providing all the required reporting capabilities for emissions monitoring.
Throughout the combustion process, the analyser constantly measures both the fuel consumption and the exhaust gases. This information is logged and recorded, providing the end-user with an accurate report on the boilers carbon footprint. The EGA can also be used to feed back its readings to an Autoflame Micro Modulator (MM) boiler controller allowing precise adjustments to be made to the fuel/air ratio (trim) of the burner for further optimised performance.
Steve Kemp, Director of Autoflame Engineering, said: “R&D is a key element of our business strategy. We invest on an ongoing basis, and that continuity allows us to benefit by delivering tomorrow’s cutting-edge technology today.
The Mk8 EGA EVO totalises greenhouse gas emissions, providing the end user with an exact carbon footprint. Establishing this data is the first step in a planned reduction of carbon emissions – enabling our customers to benefit from ever more precise controls, which in the current climate of rising fuel costs can also provide a significant monetary advantage.”
