Hurst Integrated Control SystemsCHICAGO — Hurst Boiler is introducing its line of high-efficiency integrated boiler control systems featuring graphical visualization and information collection to facilitate easier and better operational management of boilers and supporting peripherals, says the company. Each integrated control system provides PLC control, variable frequency drives, and HMI interface devices.

“Large facilities such as manufacturing, refining, schools, and hospitals have multiple boilers for redundancy and turndown,” said Jimmy Bruner, Hurst Boiler’s control systems manager. “Our new, highly advanced integrated control systems are easy to use and provide many efficiency enhancements. Our trusted, reliable boiler now becomes a source of diagnostics and information to meet the needs of our customers. They want to know more about their energy usage, predictive maintenance, and better analyze their utilities operations. The Hurst integrated controls family gives them that opportunity.

“All of our products can be fitted with the new technology,” said Bruner. “The FireMaster controls option fits all gas/oil package products and provides real-time monitoring of operational status, informative alarm annunciation, and trending to augment the standard controls associated with the boiler operation. The OXYMaster moves the deaerator’s controls to a new level where information can be displayed and gathered to see the effects of feedwater oxygen reduction and temperature control for efficient boiler operation. The FEEDMaster is our offering to gather information and control feedwater where less water tempering is required. This takes our industry-proven feed water delivery systems to a higher level, allowing any component to be monitored for optimum efficiency.”
