The term "burner management system" varies in definition and understanding throughout the oil and gas industry. Though it would be convenient to have an industry council and come to a general consensus of what it is and what it isn't, such an event is unlikely. But perhaps an understanding of what a burner management system is to Profire will do.

In order for a box to be deemed a burner management system by Profire, it needs to provide the following:
     •Auto Ignition
     •Flame Detection
     •Temperature Control
     •Safety Shutdown Capabilities
     •Remote Capabilities (Modbus, Remote Start/Stop, and ESD)


Auto Ignition: A Profire BMS quickly detects the absence of flame and has built in capabilities to re-ignite the flame--without the assistance of a service team.

Flame Detection: Our BMS detects flame through ionization. As the source comes through the kanthal rod (igniter rod), a signal from the energy from the flame that is present on the rod sends a signal back to the BMS where it is converted to a percentage. Though a flame may be visible, unless the BMS acknowledges the flame at a high quality, the application will function as if no flame is present at all.

Temperature Control: A Profire BMS will manage temperature set points, which are determined by the end user. With a set temperature range in place, the user ensures that the burner flame is present only when needed.

Safety Shutdown Capabilities: Profire's BMS can detect when certain application inputs (high/low pressure, temperature, levels, etc.) indicate a potential problem and can shut down the vessel safely.

Remote Capabilities: Without ever leaving the comfort of your office, an application can be monitored and controlled via Modbus.
