Fittings kiln burner upgrade completed on budget and ahead of schedule

Fitting kiln burner 1We required an upgrade on our Fittings Kiln as the burners on the kiln were the originals from 1997 when the kiln was installed. We worked with Duomo as we had used them previously and they are also the official UK agents for ESA burners. The ESA burners were chosen as they have proved reliable on our other continuous kiln, the pipe roller kiln. In our campaign to standardise spares held on site we now only have ESA and Eclipse burners on our kilns. Fitting kiln burner 2Phillip Wild (Duomo Technical Director) and Gorgio Rota (ESA Pyronics Commissioning Engineer) worked with David Waite and John Price on the installation. Gorgio flew over from Italy especially to set up the burners. We now have the flexibility and burner capacity to review our firing curves and cycle times in order to provide 1st class Yorkshire Flowerpots now and into the future. The Fittings Kiln burner upgrade was completed on budget and ahead of schedule.
