JLCC, Inc. Develops New "Warm-up" Burner
LINDALE, TX – JLCC, Inc. has developed a warm-up burner for use in natural draft boilers to warm the boiler, creating the draft necessary to begin burning solid fuel; thus, there are no forced-draft or induced-draft fans to interlock to. As an example, this is a very simple system for use in sugarcane processing plants. The burner is intended as a device that can keep a boiler warm in a safe manner. The controls on this burner are an improvement over existing burners in that they provide for flame supervision; the ability to lockout the fuel in the event of a flame failure. The warm up burner has been approved by FM Global. A JLCC representative said today, “The sugar mill industry needed a solution, and we created one.”
