History

Our History

Limpsfield Combustion Engineering Limited was registered in February 1995. The company was established in Bromley, South London, in order to produce burners designed for particular applications to customers’ specific requirements.

The burners were designed by South London businessman and more importantly an experienced combustion engineer Brendan Kemp. Brendan then sold the burner design on to the owners of Limpsfield once the burner range had been designed and proven.

In 2001 Limpsfield moved to a factory and offices in Biggin Hill, Kent. At this time, fabrication and precision engineering were added to the company portfolio, this allowed Limpsfield to manufacture their complete burner range without having to outsource work, which enabled us to keep close control of costs and quality.

Limpsfield offers a bespoke range of burners, “The LC Range”. This range can be designed to suit multiple boiler makes and models. The burners are capable of firing many different fuels, such as natural gas, heavy fuel oil, diesel and light distillate oils as well as many more unusual fuels such as animal fats, fish oils, solvents etc. More recently Limpsfield have produced burners to fire biogas and landfill gases.

Since 2012 we have been able to offer an “off the shelf” package burner which can be used on boilers up to 4T/hr or 250 BHP. These burners can fire natural gas, LPG and diesel oil.
