LADLE & CRUCIBLE
heating is necessary for a variety of reasons but generally to ensure the refractory
lining is free of moisture, to reduce hot spots and to allow an even heatup.
We have supplied many burners for this
process over the years however the most successful results have been achieved using the HBT range of torches.
These allow the application of high
heat outputs into relatively confined combustion spaces due to the high mixture pressures
For sites where
sufficient compressed air may not be available, the BP
range would be preferred. These utilise an air blower to deliver a pressure from 2-8 kPa
and are an economical method of preheating.
Complete systems with auto start and temperature control
SINGLE BURNER APPLICATIONS
Available in nine sizes, this burner arrangement is suitable for any situation where a concentrated heat source is required. The basic burner includes the items as indicated to enable the unit to operate efficiently and safely on any commercial fuel gas and air.
Flame retention burner tip, cast iron construction.
Air/gas mixer unit. This machined assembly precisely mixes the air and gas for accurate, safe control.
Air control valve.
Gas control valve.
Safety Check valve (not illustrated). Stops the possibility of air returning in the gas line.
MULTIPLE BURNER APPLICATIONS
This is the minimum required for satisfactory and safe operation. The burner will operate on either compressed air or lower pressure air from an air blower. The air blower is the most economical method and is usually chosen. We can advise on all your requirements.
It is possible to supply many flame retention burner tips from a single air/gas mixing unit. This is commonly used on open steel heating furnaces and continuous process heating.
