Special applications with the W-FM 54, 100, and 200 digital combustion managers

The W-FM 54, W-FM 100 and W-FM 200 digital combustion managers used on larger Weishaupt burners are also suitable for special applications.


Two different gas types (for example: biogas and natural gas) can be fed to a W-FM 54-controlled gas burner through variably definable fuel lines. Special gases can be accommodated on request, and VSD is available as an option.

The W-FM 100 can be programmed with two separate groups of fuel/air settings. Up to three fuels can be fed to the burner – Example 1: fuel oil is fired individually, and natural gas and biogas are fired simultaneously. Example 2: fuel oil and biogas are fired simultaneously, while gas, switchable between natural gas and biogas, is fired individually. The gas/oil changeover is initiated by the combustion manager, the gas/gas changeover via external controls.

The W-FM 200 can be used for dual-gas burners with on-the-fly fuel changeover (for example natural gas/biogas). There are the following variants:
Variant 1: two gas trains, switchable at the same reference rating (biogas/natural gas).
Variant 2: two gas trains, with the biogas train having the same rating as the natural-gas train.
Benefit: Simultaneous operation for gas is useable with a fixed biogas proportion and can be changed over “on the fly” (i.e. the burner continues to fire during changeover).

Simultaneous fuel firing with the W-FM 200 can also be realised using one or more combustion managers. For example, combustion manager 1 can be optimised for individual firing (oil, natural gas, or another gas type), and combustion manager 2 can be optimised for simultaneous firing (natural gas and biogas, fuel oil and natural gas, etc.).

O2 trim and VSD are available as options with the W-FM 200.
