Fuel Efficiency meets temperature uniformity with IMPS™

IMPS™ by NUTEC Bickley

IMPS™ stands for Integrated Multizone Pulsing System, NUTEC Bickley’s unique firing and cooling pulsing control system.

Key Features

Individual burners are pulsed from high fire to low fire at a controlled rate to give the required heat input.

The additional burner velocity at precise gas-to-air ratios provides a perfect solution in relation to temperature uniformity as well as fuel efficiency.

The hardware and software that is now used to make IMPS™ possible has been developed by NUTEC Bickley over the past 20+ years and has been used in ceramic firing in hundreds of installations.

IMPS™ allows different firing modes at any stage to create the perfect firing cycle for the required firing parameters.

IMPS™ can be used in batch and continuous processes and can be integrated with heat recovery system.

IMPS™ Firing Modes

Steaming – prolonged, controlled low temperature hold, as low as 100°C (212°F)

Excess Air – perfect for very tight temperature uniformity

On Ratio – the most fuel efficient option available

Reduction – specific requirement for certain products and processes

Rapid Cooling – when speed of cooling is most important

Normal Cooling – where some control is required

Slow or extra controlled cooling – for times when cooling rate is critical

Controlled cooling using burners – for sensitive products where temperature needs to be held during the cooling process
