Lambda sensor

Reducing the emission values and increasing the efficiency, these are the requirements for a state-of-the-art biomass heating system, amongst others. The lambda sensor technology was developed in the 70ies and has been used as a standard in the field of automobiles since 1976. In the field of automobiles the lambda sensor controls the ratio of fuel and air, in order to achieve an ideal efficiency at the lowest emissions. This principle of residual oxygen measurement in the exhaust gas is also used as regards to the combustion of biomass (logs, wood chips, pellets). In order to achieve the pollutant emission threshold currently required and constantly becoming more stringent, control by means of the lambda sensor is state-of-the-art.
