The products of DURAG GROUP support all types of industrial combustion processes and environmental monitoring throughout the world. These include, for example, fossil fuel power stations, plants in chemical industry, refineries, cement plants, wast incinerators, steam generators, thermal power plants and gas turbines. ATHEX can also provide solutions for applications in special environments, such as extreme climatic zones or potentially explosive atmospheres.
Every flame burns differently. Its shape and colours varies depending on fuel, fuel-air ratio, burner form, load condition, boiler temperature and many other factors. Decades of close collaboration with our customers allow ATHEX to cover the entire range of parameters.
Safe ignition - Reliable monitoring
To enable safe ignition of every type of fuel the ATHEX offers a wide range of products, from portable spark igniters to high-power ignition burners.
Our flame monitors and burner controls monitor combustion highly slectively and reliable every second, even under difficult conditions.
Monitoring & optimise
With the video and thermography systems of DURAG GROUP, combustion process can be analyzed for optimisation, which enables higher efficiency and smaller failure rates caused by system wear. A Special system for the application in cement plants alse helps to improve the product quality.
