Valmet acquires monitoring technology company Enertechnix
October 9, 2018 – Valmet has acquired Enertechnix, a high-tech combustion diagnostics and monitoring technology company based in Washington, USA.
Enertechnix develops innovative technologies for boiler imaging and temperature measuring, and holds a leading position on the U.S. market. The value of the acquisition will not be disclosed. The company employs approximately 20 people.
Enertechnix has developed high-resolution IR camera systems with diagnostics software to provide online visibility and temperature analysis. The systems are able to see through obscuring dust and gas to depths of 24 metres, allowing monitoring of developments anywhere in the combustion chamber.
The acquisition complements Valmet's automation offering for the pulp and paper, and energy industries, enabling it to offer more solutions to improve the efficiency, availability and safety of recovery and power boilers.
"Enertechnix's combustion diagnostics and monitoring systems meet well the needs of today's recovery and power boiler operators," says Sami Riekkola, business line president, automation for Valmet. "We are especially excited about the comprehensive imaging and high-temperature measurement solutions as well as the many opportunities they provide in opening a whole new window into the boiler process."
George Kychakoff, founder and CEO of Enertechnix, says, "I believe that our leading products, technologies and business will be further developed at Valmet, and they will be better and more easily accessible to the customers globally."
