Combustion Safety Compliance
Legislation for Combustion Safety can be categorized through the application, whether for residential, commercial or industrial use.
When it comes to combustion analyzers, Combustion Safety Compliance looks at the effectiveness of the combustion in the particular appliance, with the view to reduce harmful gases.
Different combustion appliances, whether that’s Boilers, Burners, Furnaces, Engines, Turbines, Generators, Kilns, Heaters, Incinerators have varying combustion compliance requirements. In addition, different industry applications will also have different legislation depending on the geographical location and also the environmental impact of the combustion process. These industry applications vary from Residential/Commercial/Industrial Heating, Power Generation, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Marine, Mining, Food & Beverage, Transportation, Chemical/Petrochemical, Metallurgy, Refineries, Research and more. At Bacharach, we produce a wide range of combustion analyzers for your particular needs, here’s how to find the right one for you.
In the US, legislation for residential combustion requires compliance to AHRI 1260. In the UK, EN 50369 and in the EU, restrictions are outlined in the Clean Air Policy Framework.
With more stringent requirements for commercial combustion compliance, US regulations can be found through the EPA CTM 030 (Natgas Engines, Boilers, Heaters) and EPA CTM 034 (Periodic Monitoring of Stationary Sources) as well as state driven legislation outlined by SCAQMD Rule 1146.2 (boilers) and rule 1110.2 (engines).
As well as commercial compliance requirements, there is also industry specific legislation. For example, International Marine applications require compliance to MARPOL Annex VI I.

How and Why Should One Measure NOx? NOx emissions (NO & NO2) must be closely monitored with a gas analyzer to ensure that combustion systems, such as boilers and engines, are running safely and efficiently as well as complying with environmental regulations.
First and foremost, you might ask, “What is NOx?” Well, here’s the chemical explanation: The term NOx refers to nitrogen oxides—Nitric oxide (NO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)—which are a set of chemically reactive gases comprised of varying amounts of nitrogen and oxygen molecules.
Poorly maintained heating appliances can be sources of carbon monoxide in the home. In fact, residential carbon monoxide poisoning is “the most common scenario for CO [carbon monoxide] exposure, accounting for most non-fatal injuries and almost half of deaths caused by CO.”
