How did the PF3100 come to be?
THE PROCESS OF INNOVATION
CHANGE. To some it means something. To others it means nothing. To Profire it means everything. In the unpredictable energy sector, we’ve been able to stabilize a foundation for burner management and chemical injection. Though we’ve been recognized as a leader in the industry, we realize that constant improvement and the courage to innovate is paramount to our continued success.
CAN WE DO THIS?
Years ago as a much smaller, yet growing, company, we were focused on deepening relationships and reaching out to potential customers. Through these efforts, we were made aware of an opportunity and project that intrigued our team of engineers. As we reached out to one of the largest E&P companies in the world and inquired to learn more, our interest led to an opportunity to bid on the project. Profire’s leadership team came together, considered the scope of the project, and prepared a proposition. Unaware how our bid would compare against competitors, we were excited to learn that our bid not only grabbed the attention of this large corporation but landed us the opportunity.
DISCOVERING OUR STRENGTH
Attempting to gather business requirements for the project, our lead technician conducted an on-site assessment. From his own personal take and through conversations regarding project expectations, we realized what this project would entail. Though more complicated than initially perceived, our lead technician was confident that our team of engineers could provide this customer with a proper solution. After 8+ months of planning and preparing, in addition to trial runs and troubleshooting, we completed the project.

CHALLENGE FUELS INNOVATION
After successfully finishing the project, we gained the confidence and respect of this customer. However, the project left our team pondering.
What if burner management were modular?
What if development time was reduced from months to weeks?
What if installation required hours instead of days?
What if producers had an off-the-shelf solution that didn’t require hundreds of hours of custom programming?
