Maxon manufactured a system based on one Optima SLS burner and one M-Pakt burner. Both burners have their own pipe train complete with Maxon's own control and shut off valves. This system gave the customer a turnkey solution to his heating requirement.
At the end of 2007 a Maxon start-up engineer and the project engineer traveled to Sweden to start up this installation.
The Maxon system operating between 325kW and 6000 kW on propane, heated a huge amount - 600,000 m(3)/h - of extremely cold air (-27°C). The required temperature difference was very low, only about 30°C.
The SLS-burners achieved low emission levels of 0.05 ppm NO2 and 0.2 ppm NO. With a CO reading below 2 ppm, all the emission levels were below the limits set by Boliden.
