Unity is an advanced steam boiler control system offering unprecedented management, efficiency, visibility and fingertip control – recording and cross-referencing data trends from every discrete system area to implement efficiency and cost-saving responses.

Its single, user-friendly interface is controllable via the built-in touchscreen with remote control and monitoring also available on desktop or tablet PC.

In terms of both information processing, ease-of-use and measurable business benefits, Unity is unrivalled in the steam boiler market. Discover why our customers have joined the innovators in adopting intelligent boiler-house technology.

The revolutionary industrial boiler control system harnesses the power of digital technology to transform the industrial boiler industry.

Unity offers the leading solution for any industry using process steam or hot water. The system employs the Internet of Things (IoT) to remotely monitor and diagnose faults to systematically change boiler-related operations and services.

Its value is in its capability to significantly reduce cost, improve product & service performance and provide better value to our customers.

Utilising a cloud platform we are able to collect and combine data from each customer and uncover data insights; analysing, managing and integrating much broader operational data than ever before.

Encompassing a range of smart data, predictive tools and engineering proficiency to obtain additional insight, the results will help customers reduce fuel usage, increase operational efficiency and significantly reduce any potential downtime. Delivering a step-change in boiler servicing, Unity helps improve response time as well as enhancing onsite efficiency.

Unity, the first product of its kind on the market,  has achieved outstanding results and has been awarded a 2016 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

The latest honour is not the first bestowed on Byworth for Unity. The company won the prestigious Lord Derek Ezra Award from the Combustion Engineering Association back in 2015.

Big Data – Reduced Downtime & Opex

Unity manages precise data from your boiler house to predict and prevent boiler failure, significantly reducing downtime. The pioneering system employs Industry 4.0 technology to deliver reduced operating costs and safer management of industrial boiler houses.

Unity controls and manages a boiler house as one entity rather than relying on various third-party control systems; creating a considerably more efficient and configurable plant.

Data is accessible from the cloud; enabling plant managers to optimise the relationship between boiler and process by understanding when large peaks and troughs are happening.

The intelligent use of data allows site managers and operators to react more quickly to plant conditions, reducing the number of start-stop cycles fuel and water usage.

The User Experience and Interface

  • Accessible via a built-in touch screen
  • Quick access to trend data and alarm logs. A simple green, amber, red warning system instantly draw operator attention to changes in plant condition
  • User controllable features that can be programmed and monitored through HMI include:
    – time sequencing and scheduling
    – selectable setback pressures
    – night setback
    – automated two staged cold start
    – trending of measured values
    – logging of alarms
    – automated water tests
    – automated feed pump rotation
    – automated bottom blowdown
    – operator user groups
    – hotwell level and temperature control
    – hints to possible fault causes
    – fuel metering (instantaneous and totalised)
    – boiler sequencing o actual steam output
    – three-part water level control
    – chemical dosing pump control
    – feedforward burner control
  • Step-by-step guides to implement best practice boiler checks and maintenance regimes
