Why ARE combustion and heating systems important?

During the development of new products and systems, today’s manufacturers of combustion and heating components, products and systems need to consider many requirements. In view of globally changing markets and ever shorter development cycles, manufacturers are striving to strengthen their competitiveness and expand their market positions by offering highly efficient and profitable products. At the same time, manufacturers also need to comply with increasingly complex technical standards and legal requirements for combustion and heating products and systems from the initial concept to the design and production phases.
