Honeywell has chosen National Energy Control Corp. as a ControLinks distributor. According to Honeywell, its ControLinks technology represents a step forward in fuel/air ratio optimization for boilers.

The company also says that there are sustainable efficiencies that can be gained by doing away with mechanical linkages and providing repeatable fuel/air ratios. Additionally, NECC will have the ability to partner boiler building automation companies together.

NECC officials explained that boilers have older mechanical linkage systems with a foot-mounted actuator to position both air and fuel at the same time. Linkageless systems replace the single actuator with separate direct-coupled actuators for the air-, fuel- and flue-gas recirculation, if required.  ControLinks help to realize energy savings, increased turndown, reduced emissions and system reliability in one package.
