Our Company

PIA is a company manufacturing electronic devices for commercial and industrial use. PIA also makes custom designs and specializes in flame detection for industrial combustion. We designed and fabricated various electronic controls and, since their creation, we have integrated microcontrollers in various fields of application, being the first to use this technology for flame detectors.

PIA concentrates on the design, manufacture and distribution of advanced flame scanners  since 30 years. Their technology is suitable for the flame scanning of coal, oil, gas, and other fuels for industries such as:

  Look at the flame through !
  • Various industrial boilers and processes
  • Steam generation
  • Ovens, dryers
  • Power generation, utilities
  • Petroleum & petrochemical
  • Ethanol production
  • Pulp & Paper
  • Oil and liquefied gas tankers
  • Steel plants (coke production)
  • Cement works (kilns)



We are looking for

Many territories are available, so do not hesitate to ask for more information and call us to discuss about opportunities in your region. 

Our flame detection technique is based on UV and/or IR signal analysis. To improve flame discrimination and characterization, our team made in depth researchess on high IR flicker frequencies that have led to a unique advanced technology for real time flame analysis. . 
Video capture in real-time: Level adjustment, response with or without filter and waveform of the IR signal. Quick and easy W146 Dual UV/IR Flame Scanner
Video capture in real-time: Frequency decomposition, level adjustment, response with or without filter and waveform of the IR signal. Quick and easy

FV-03 SmartScan
Flame Scanning System

Since 1989, more than 5,000 FV-03 SmartScan flame scanning systems have been installed in various industries around the world.

Due to the obsolescence of certain critical electronic components, the FV-03 system has been completely discontinued.

Designer of the FV-03 Hamworthy Peabody Combustion, PIA suggests an updated version for the direct replacement of this product, the Window 141 Flame Scanning System...

This option will permit to maintain existing installations and units could be repaired or updated for more performance at the customer's request.

Please contact us for more information and availability.
