A Burner Management System (BMS) is a safety solution for power generation facilities that enables the safe start-up, operation, and shut down of the multiple-burner furnace section of a boiler. It reduces maintenance, improves up-time, and provides a safe environment for the boiler and plant personnel.​

​Highly reliable Honeywell Safety Systems applied to Power Boiler and Recovery Boiler Burner Management applications can improve plant uptime, reduce ownership costs and ensure regulatory compliance compared to relay or general purpose Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)- based applications. A typical solution may also provide protection for the boiler water circulation pump, replacement of the master fuel trip (MFT) relay, and link the burner management system of the auxiliary boiler to the main burner management system.

Honeywell Safety platforms provide up to SIL 3 TÜV approved Burner Management System solutions that cover requirements according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 85 & 86 standards and European EN 50156-1.

A burner management system is responsible for the safe start-up, operation and shutdown of a boiler. It monitors and controls igniters and main burners; utilizes flame scanners to detect and discriminate between the igniter and main flames; employs safety shut-off valves, pressure, temperature, flow and valve position limit switches and uses blowers to cool the scanners and/or provide combustion air for the igniters. Its proper operation is crucial to the safety of a boiler.

A BMS is an integral part of the Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and TPS® offering a single source operator interface. The system can expand to include engineering, controller and “burner front” products and services which form a superior BMS solution when combined.​

Honeywell’s BMS improves plant uptime, reduces total cost of ownership and ensures regulatory compliance compared to relay or general purpose PLC-based applications. It also improves personnel safety by removing the need to access old relay boxes located in high temperature areas of the boiler.​
