Burner & Boiler Control


The Mk8 MM Controller is a Micro-Modulating system that offers comprehensive control over industrial and commercial boiler/burners. Managed virtually all boiler processes from a single 12.1” multi-touch screen interface without any added modules.

Ideal for steam and water boilers (watertube or firetube), kilns and steam generators. Designed for oil, natural gas or both fuels. Linkages servomotor system and automated flame safeguard create conditions for unmanned boilerhouse.

Modbus connectivity allows for remote monitoring and management. Control more with software unlocks.

 Access codes unlock advanced features without the inconvenience of hardware changes or added modules:

  • Autoflame water level management
  • Analogue water level (requires Autoflame water level)
  • TDS/Top blowdown
  • Bottom blowdown
  • Draught control
  • Direct Modbus connectivity
  • First out annunciation
  • Fully metered, cross-limited control
  • Steam flow & water flow metering

Mk8 Controller


Perfect for industrial and commercial steam and hot water boiler applications, the Autoflame Mini Mk8 Controller offers cutting edge technology that can significantly reduce emissions and fuel costs.

Able to reduce fuel consumption by 5-7% over traditional linkage systems. Capable of reducing CO2 emissions by 10%. Repeatable, accurate positioning system reduces maintenance costs.

Controls fuel, VSD, scheduling, sequencing and other automatic settings. Robust steel construction. 

Available in a control panel package

Main Features:

  • Direct replacement for Mini MK7
  • Micro Modulation of fuel/air ratio control
  • 2 fuel curve capability
  • 3 servomotor channel control
  • 1 VSD channel control
  • Internal flame safeguard control
  • Full flame supervision with self-check UV, IR or ionisation flame detection
  • Self-check UV detection (optional)
  • Lead lag/IBS (Intelligent Boiler Sequencing)
  • Precise target setpoint control (PID)
  • 3 parameter trim, O2, CO2, & CO (requires EGA option)
  • NFPA compliant
  • Outdoor Temperature Compensation (requires OTC module)
  • Time clock feature

Mini Mk8 Controller

Comparison between Mk8 & Mk8 Controllers

Burner & Boiler Control


The Mk8 DTI (Data Transfer Interface) lets users know in real time how the boilers are performing, either on-site through its built-in touch screen, via a local PC, or remotely via a BMS system. It stores MM and EGA system data for a rolling 2-year period.

 The DTI is a gateway for communicating with the Autoflame MM Controller and/or EGA range of products. The DTI collects and stores information from a maximum of 10 Autoflame Systems in one location. The information gathered is instantly available for transmission to an external source such as a BMS via RS422 or Ethernet link. The Mk8 DTI also includes Autoflame DTI Manager software as standard, allowing data collection over a local network or over the internet. The Mk8 DTI also supports the Modbus protocol over Ethernet and RS422 as standard.

Main Features:
The DTI can collect information from up to 10 of each of the following Autoflame products: 

  • Mk8 MM Controller, Mini Mk8 MM Controller or any combination
  • Autoflame Mk8 Exhaust Gas Analyser (EGA) linked directly to the DTI
  • Pressure sensor network – connect and monitor Autoflame Mk8 digital Gas or Air pressure sensors, with two years of data logs
  • Input/Output modules with both analogue and digital connections

Network Emails generated in the case of a fault or alarm


Emission Monitoring & Trim

Mk8 EGA Evo

Overview: CEMS emissions auditing and trim control
For decades, boilerhouses, manufacturing plants and other industrial environments have used EGA’s (Exhaust Gas Analyser) to monitor flue emissions to comply with environmental regulations & to reduce fuel usage & emissions. The EGA EVO can operate as a standalone independent continuous monitor, or it can feed back its readings to an Autoflame MM Boiler Controller, allowing the MM to adjust the fuel/air ratio (trim) of the burner for optimised performance.

  • Simultaneous & continuous sampling of up to 6 exhaust gases (O2, CO2, CO, NO, NO2 & SO2) at a fraction of the price of alternative systems. Use with Autoflame MM Controller or Standalone Mode.
  • Enables 3 parameter trim control in MM Controller for improved fuel efficiency and emission reduction.

With built-in CEMS Auditing software, view reports by user-definable time periods (24 hours, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 years, etc.) based on:

  • Total weight & volumetric emissions
  • Weight/volumetric emissions per exhaust
  • Total cost of fuel
