Project Details

WireCo wanted to improve safety, reliability, and efficiency by replacing their burner and control systems. Their existing setup required constant maintenance and manpower.

To help WireCo accomplish their goals, Rasmussen Mechanical Services retrofitted two (2) 300Bhp Power Flame Burners with Limpsfield LCN36 Burners and Mini MK8 Controls with a Variable Speed Drive.

The burners were replaced one at a time. Each burner was installed, wired, commissioned and tested in under one week. The maintenance staff was trained by RMS’ Burner Services Technicians on proper operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting practices.

The unexpected benefit of the retrofit is how quiet the Limpsfield Burners operate. The difference in sounds was so noticeable, that when the client’s maintenance personnel would enter the boiler room they thought the burners had tripped off. They became pleasantly surprised to see their new system was operating better than they had expected.
