The Weishaupt WKmono 80 burner for ratings up to 17 MW

The powerful output offered by the new WKmono 80 burner would have called for a separate combustion air fan, until now. The monobloc design of the new burner means no air ductwork is needed, so installation costs are considerably reduced.

 

Particular emphasis was placed on a space-saving design throughout the design stages of burner development. As a consequence, the WKmono 80 dual-fuel burner is very compact – just 1630 mm long – despite its 17 MW rating. The burner is also notable for the aero­dynamic, efficient, and noise-reducing design of its housing.

Despite its compactness, all of the burner’s components – such as the mixing assembly, air dampers, and combustion manager – are arranged in a well-thought-out and readily accessible manner. The standard-length mixing assembly can be moved to a servicing position within the burner housing; it is not necessary to remove it. The complete removal of longer mixing assemblies, with combustion heads up to 1100 mm long, can be easily achieved by withdrawing the assembly back through the burner housing.

The WKmono 80 is commissioned using an operator-friendly, menu-driven burner commissioning program.

The mixing assembly and numerous other components originate from the tried-and-trusted WK burner range. This provides many advantages to installers and operators in areas such as the procurement and storage of spare parts, as well as in training and burner maintenance.

Digital combustion management from Weishaupt means optimal combustion figures, continuously reproducible setpoints, and ease of use.The combustion manager’s integrated bus interface enables all necessary data and functions to be relayed to a master control system. If required, a modem can be installed to allow for remote operation, monitoring, and diagnosis of the burner.
