Process control system (PCC) for control and rotary impulse control of a radiant tube multiple burner system, UV-controlled with gas and cold air supply.


The supply voltage is supplied to the control system via the power supply unit (100).

Start-up of the combustion air fan (210) includes the “no flow” state check of the Air min. air pressure monitor (311).

The control block for monitoring the safety limits (300) assumes the safety-related monitoring of the safety limits Air min. air pressure monitor (311), Gas min. low-pressure cut-off (321), Gas max. high gas pressure protection device (322), Emergency stop/Emergency off/Gas off (331) and ϑ max. overtemperature monitor (332).

Once the system has started and all safety limits (300) are present, pre-purging (341) of the thermoprocessing equipment begins and the tightness control (350) checks the automatic shut-off valves. Once pre-purge (341) has been completed and the OK signal has been issued by the tightness control (350), the safety interlocks (shown in yellow) are set and the burners are started in the ignition position. Once the presence of the flame has been signalled to the associated automatic burner control unit (450), the burner starts.

The impulse system (520) receives the capacity control signal from the temperature controller (510) and converts this into several delayed pulse-width-modulated signals.


A system fault lock-out occurs if

  • at least one of the safety limits does not lie within the system operating range
  • or the tightness control (350) has detected a leak on the main gas valves or burner valves
  • or the automatic burner control unit (450) has detected a burner fault.

The system fault lock-out may only be reset manually.

The safety limits listed refer to a typical item of thermoprocessing equipment. The required safety limits may differ, depending on the system type.

If the automatic shut-off valves of each burner are controlling capacities of over 1200 kW, a tightness control (350) must be fitted in accordance with EN 746-2:2010.
