FireMaster is a fully automated monitoring and control system integrated throughout the entire package boiler system from it's make-up water consumption to steam-flow and back as condensate return.
This control family is designed and tested by Hurst to optimize the firing and operations of the Hurst Performance Series Boilers. With over 1000 data scans a second, the communication and processing power of a Firemaster micro-programmable controller (PLC) is unmatched by conventional stand alone systems. In combination with the micro PLC, is the addition of a touch screen human machine interface (HMI). Together these two form the core of this amazing integrated boiler control system.

WASHINGTON - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced the award of more than $4.2 million in grants to 13 small businesses and community groups developing innovative renewable energy projects and new product development using woody biomass from hazardous fuel reduction projects on National Forest land.
"Energy derived from woody biomass, switch-grass and other sources has enormous potential benefits for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, developing clean, home-grown energy, and providing economic opportunities for rural America," Vilsack said. "Markets for woody biomass can also bolster forest restoration activities on both public and private lands, improving the ecological health of our forests and reducing the impacts of global climate change."

A requirement that new renewable energy projects needed to have begun construction to qualify for cash grants in lieu of tax credits is being revised by the Department of Treasury. The department now says that off-site work, developers hired under contract and certain costs accrued can all be considered to help a project qualify before the December 31, 2010 in-service deadline. The revision allows certain costs incurred by a manufacturer or contractor to be taken into account, but the property must be manufactured or built for the applicant by another person under a written contract. In addition, the contract must be entered into before the property is manufactured or constructed.
