LAMTEC F200K flame scanner in operation


LAMTEC will show its product range in the field of Combustion Management Systems, Flame Monitoring and Ignition Burners from June 27 to June 29, 2017 in Hall 8, Booth A39.

Power-Gen Europe in Cologne (Germany)  is one of the largest technology exhibitions for power plants and energy suppliers.


For the project Cityheat in Geertruidenberg (NL), our Dutch partner Tempco B. V has supplied the control and monitoring equipment for 4 x 38 MW flame-tube boilers from Viessmann/HKB. The system is heated with 8 x Low-NOx 22 MW Vitotherm burners each controlled with ETAMATIC OEM and FFS08 flame scanners. In order to achieve maximum combustion efficiency, the application is equipped with 8 x LT3-F flue gas analysers. The LAMTEC technology enables the end user to achieve emission values of 0.6 % O2 and NOx values of approx. 40 ppm.
