Flame Doctor® Burner Diagnostic System

For individual burner optimization

The Flame Doctor® burner diagnostic system provides real-time analysis for each burner on your boiler. It analyzes individual burner performance, identifies poorly performing burners, and provides a root cause diagnosis to help guide adjustments.

The Flame Doctor system utilizes signals from existing optical flame scanners to diagnose poor operation in individual burners that contributes to excessive emissions or reduced efficiency. Overall combustion performance can be improved beyond the limits of traditional burner tuning, which relies mostly on the experience and knowledge of the combustion engineer.
