Why Buy Combustion Controls Through Bloom?

Although there are many places to buy a panel, a combustion control system requires detailed application knowledge of the furnace operation and interaction with the burner system. With today's demands for high efficiency, low emissions and maximum productivity, a well-engineered control system can pay for itself many times over.

Bloom conducts complete functional testing of hardware and software prior to shipment. These considerations greatly reduce field commissioning time and enhance long-term reliability.

Bloom’s combustion design philosophy takes into account the harsh realities of furnace control environmental factors such as temperature, dust, vibration and electrical noise.
