If you are looking for combustion safeguards, look no further than Skokie, Ill. Why, you ask? Because that is where Protection Controls Inc. calls home.
PCI is the only company whose primary product is combustion safeguards. It has been that way since 1953, when Bob and Jim Yates founded the company. Bob held several patents in the 1940s for inventing the flame rectification principle, which says that the flame actually conducts electrical current and rectifies AC current to DC current. This principle is still in use today since flame rods are the most popular method of sensing flames in industrial burners.
