Draught Control

## The control of combustion in a steam generator is extremely critical.

Maximization of operational efficiency requires accurate combustion.
Fuel consumption rate should exactly match the demand for steam.
The variation of fuel flow rate should be executed safely.
The rate of energy release should occur without any risk to the plant,
personal or environment.
