Many industrial facilities are dealing with old legacy Burner Management Systems. Recent Natural Gas availability and cost effectiveness have led many plants to convert from various oil fuels to dual fuel (oil/gas) or solely to natural gas. In some instances we have recommended the plants to continue dual fuel capability. This recommendation has proven to be very beneficial in light of the natural gas price volatility that exists in the Northeastern United States.
