The flue gases arising from the combustion contain CO2, oxide or soot particles, amongst other things. These pollute the environment, have a negative effect on the climate and conceal numerous health risks for human beings. That is why it is absolutely essential to design combustion processes in a more efficient way, to optimise thermal processes and above all to reduce emissions.
Flue gas analysis
The flue gas measurement for a heating system helps to establish the pollutants released with the flue gas and the heating energy lost with the warm flue gas.
- Ensuring the atmosphere is contaminated as little as possible by pollutants
- Using energy as efficiently as possible.
Standard readings taken during services of domestic heating systems include checking the gas pressure on the burners. This involves measuring the gas flow pressure and gas resting pressure.
- Optimum flow pressure for gas boilers between 18 to 25 mbar
- Avoid shut-downs of the heating system
The leak test (or more aptly, serviceability test, also known as leakage measurement) for the pipeline system is to be repeated every 12 years using a measuring instrument.
- The gas pipe is always tested in operating conditions/with operating pressure
- Check whether gas is leaking from the pipe and how much
