Who is Actually Managing your boiler right now?

Introducing a 24/7 Boiler house Management by The Experts in Boilers and Combustion Systems for a very low cost!

How Combustion Technology manages your Boilers 24/7

How does it work?

How does it work?

  • The Autoflame MM controller is the brain of the system. It Controls and manages All the functions of the Burner and Boiler system.
  • Interface: 12.1” user-friendly multi-touch screen.
  • The EGA (Exhaust Gas Analyser)- samples the exhaust gases and feeds the readings back to the MM. The MM then adjusts the system and maintains the Commissioned values.

= Reduced Fuel Consumption = Reduced Carbon Taxes)

How does it work?

  • The DTI collects and stores the data history from the MM for up to 2 years.
  • Combustion Technology connects to the DTI via a router built into our Control panel.
  • The Central Control room at our Offices monitors all parameters on site 24/7.
  • Alarms are set up to Alert our Engineers 24/7, should any set points drift off Commissioned values.
  • We Action any necessary Intervention to immediately assist our Clients

How does it work?

By Installing an Autoflame DTI, we are able to log on to any site equipped and see the boiler running in real time.

Up to 10 boilers can be connected per site.

Features such as; All burner functions, fuel consumption vs steam generation, steam flow metering, fuel pressure sensor, water level control, ideal emissions (O₂, CO₂, CO) and many more are enabled and managed 24/7.

How does it work?

Boiler Management

Diagnostics of maintenance and performance issues on all boilers

We analyse the performance of the burner/boiler by comparing the actual data against the commissioned data. The whole idea of this process is to anticipate possible issues that could affect the client’s downtime/ shutdown for unplanned maintenance.

Monitoring fuel usage

Via Fuel and water flowmeters we monitor actual consumption values and trend fuel to steam ratios.

Emissions monitoring

The flue emissions are monitored at the same time. This is particularly important to track and directly relates to fuel consumption. Emissions are all sampled and fed back to the MM to allow for air damper corrections to maintain optimal combustion. In addition, we can manage your emissions to conform to the national environmental requirements for boiler flue gas emissions.

Boiler Management

Expert Opinion available 24/7

When Combustion Technology is your service provider via a Service Level Agreement (SLA), you are assured of Expert opinion and advice.

Monthly Performance report

Our package includes a monthly performance report, detailing the overall system performance, including steam production, and any other added-features on site. The monthly reports give our clients an overview of how the site has been running, and include recommendations to optimise the performance.

Data history stored for 2 years

All the data history is stored for 2 years.

Alarms and Lockouts settings

Burner/boiler alarms, warnings, lockouts and first outs are monitored from the DTI and set up as email notifications.

Boiler & Burner Service

Breakdowns, which are usually unforeseen, result in production downtime and more often than not becomes very costly. For this very reason, we believe in preventive maintenance rather than reactive maintenance.

Clients should also look at the viability of a secondary or back up boiler or burner as opposed to production losses. We urge clients to maintain their own stock levels on site to avoid lead times in the event of our stock level being depleted. Be prepared – prevention is better than cure!

Timely and regularly scheduled service of your equipment ensure that your downtime is kept to a minimum.


The frequency of a burner service depends on factors such as the type of fuel in use, type of operations and the surrounding conditions.

Heavy oil burners – service and re-commissioning at 3-month intervals recommended
Light Oil burners – service and re-commissioning at 4-month intervals recommended
Gas Burners – service and re-commissioning at 6-months intervals recommended

Services include:

  • Overall burner condition inspection
  • Nozzle replacement as standard
  • Diffuser disc clean
  • Listing any possible parts wear and planning for replacement
  • Cleaning air FD fan
  • Cleaning burner casing
  • Cleaning or replacing fuel filters
  • HT Leads & Electrodes replacement
  • Photocell or UV Scanner clean or replacement
  • Fuel pressure checks


Annual and 3-yearly service and statutory inspections are mandatory as stated in SANS 347. Accredited AIA inspectors, all in accordance with OHASA as per SANS 347, inspect and sign off the equipment for operation.
Correct boiler installation, commissioning, operation, inspection & storage is vital for the safe, reliable and efficient use of pressure vessels. In most cases, the boiler is the heart of the plant and production process, and therefore has to be cared for to avoid expensive repairs or even replacement.


Hot water boilers are subject to SANS 347 if they fall within the category requiring annual AIA inspection and certification. Hot water boilers must be maintained in a similar way as that of steam boilers.
