OXYCOMB Sistemas came into being in 2005 as an innovative company in the manufacture of technology for monitoring industrial combustion atmospheres.
It was founded by two industrial engineers with extensive experience in thermal processes. They saw a need for the introduction of in-situ and continuous monitoring of the state of oxidation/reduction in combustion atmospheres, in order to regulate the parameters having an impact in real time, such as the air pressure in burners, chimney draw, primary and secondary air, etc.
The equipment in existence up until then comprised low-temperature extractive analyzers, which took regular samples of the gases and analyzed them outside the kilns. These features couldn’t allow in-situ and continuous analysis in real time, which in turn made it impossible to use them to improve the combustion processes.
This is the background of how OXYCOMB Sistemas began carrying out studies on a wide range of kiln types (tunnel, roller, intermittent, etc.).
After the development of the first prototypes, in 2006 the first range of OPTIMA® non-extractive analyzers was launched, capable of continuously measuring, at temperatures between 500ºC and 1,550ºC, the O2% and the temperature of the atmospheres of combustion.
Then came the first installations in tunnel kilns, glass, biomass, steel, aluminum, technical ceramics, etc.
In 2008, the new range of analyzers with OPTIMA-P® technology was launched onto the market, providing static pressure measurement in the same analyzer.
In 2012, the new range of BLUESKY® analyzers was created in response to the needs of the market in the control of channeled emissions. These analyzers incorporated new measures such as CO2 ind., CO ind., excess air and energy performance.
In 2019, 2 new analyzer models are launched on the market. The OPTIMA® RH for the measurement of relative humidity in dryers and the OPTIMA® XP for the measurement of particles in the chimney.
Nowadays, OPTIMA® / BLUESKY® analyzers provide significant improvements in the quality of the final product as well as great energy savings and notable reductions in emissions of polluting gases such as CO2, NOX, etc.
All the above has enabled us to become the leaders in the manufacture of equipment for the continuous monitoring of combustion atmospheres today, having undertaken more than 600 installations in more than 20 countries in Europe, America, Middle East and North Africa.
