MCL Control keeps developing BoilerSentinel™ and FurnaceSentinel™, comprehensive integral solutions
targeted to satisfy the protection and control requirements of boilers and furnaces, being them
thermally integrated or not. Both encompass what is commonly known as Burner Management Systems
(BMS), which includes the sequence for the safe startup and shutdown as well as emergency shutdown
for boilers and furnaces; in addition, both products also address the need of continuous control,
monitoring, and thermal integration by means of optimal load distribution algorithms in the case of
steam networks, as well as the automation of water treatment plants in the case of the boilers.
The global concept of both products offers answers that reach all production related areas (operation,
maintenance, supervision, management, administration, etc.). Based on current AP , EC, NFPA, and
also eq ui pment manufacturers’ safety standards requirements, both products comply with the
concept of having Safety and Control separated in independent Modules as described below.
Furthermore, both products are based upon commercial Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
platforms for both control and sequencing, and upon EC-61508 compliant TÜV certified Programmable
Electronic Systems (PES or Safety PLC) for process safety.
The architecture of a system based inany of these products can be adjusted to comply with the required Safety lntegrity Leve/ (SlL) and availability for your process. Both products also offer the flexibility of combining both control and protection of the equipment in the same controller (PLC) when allowed by applicable regulations and standards.
