22 Apr Autoflame honoured with Queen’s Award
Autoflame Engineering are delighted to announce that the company has been honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are among the most prestigious business awards in the World, recognising and celebrating business excellence.
Founded in 1972 by Brendan Kemp, Autoflame Engineering, which is in its 50th year, designs, and manufactures combustion management controls, offering precise intelligent control, focused on driving down costs and emissions for both commercial and industrial combustion burners.
The company has successfully exported to more than 140 countries worldwide, and its installations are successfully supported by a network of “Tech Centres.”
The award, which is valid for the next five years, is in recognition of the Exhaust Gas Analyser (EGA) developed by Autoflame Engineering.
The Exhaust Gas Analyser (EGA) monitors exhaust gas emissions to comply with environmental regulations and help to reduce fuel usage & emissions.
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 optimised performance, including:
- Simultaneous and continuous sampling of up to six exhaust gases (O2, CO2, CO, NO, NO2, SO2) at a fraction of the price of alternative systems.
- Enables Three Parameter Trim control in MM Controller for improved fuel efficiency and emission reduction.
- Built-in CEMS Auditing software, creating user-definable reports based on:
- Total weight and volumetric emissions.
- Weight/volumetric emissions per exhaust gas.
- Logging data for up to 3 years
- Safely setting limits for harmful extract gases
Autoflame Engineering has a proud association with the Awards, this is the fourth time the company have won, having been previously successful in 1996, 1997 & 2007, in the Export, Environmental and Innovation categories.
Steve Kemp, Director of Autoflame Engineering commented, “R&D is a key element of our business strategy – an ever constant. We invest on an ongoing basis, and that continuity allows us to benefit by delivering tomorrow’s cutting edge technology today.”
Continuing, SK stated, “the latest EGA totalises the 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. Our in-house teams are always looking to push our technology to its limit – enabling our customers to benefit from ever more precise controls, which in the current climate of rising fuel costs can represent a significant monetary advantage.”
