Air heating burners require specific characteristics to be suitable for air heating. Among these are a high turn down and the ability to operate on high excess air volumes. Our AH air heating burners are widely used to dry textiles including printed T-Shirts. The torch burners are used to efficiently direct fire Rotary Driers and can be an economical option for air heating.

The AH PACKAGE is especially suitable due to the clean combustion, large air volume for efficient drying (the unit is equipped with an adjustable fan), modular construction for ease of servicing and gas approval.

AH - AIR HEAT BURNERS

The AH air heat burners are available in a variety of styles and several sizes. They have been designed for operation with the air flow through the burner but are equally suitable as a suction cone type burner. Virtually any output can be accommodated with the burners capable of wide turn down rates for accurate temperature control. The standard AH units are cone type burners fitted with an ignition probe ready to mount. These can be fitted into virtually any shape or size duct providing the airflow around the burner is kept to approx. 2,500 ft/min. although these burners will operate satisfactorily in a range of conditions.
