Ceramic Tile Gas Burners

Used in a wide variety of industries, notably food cooking and process heating, ceramic tiles have a long and proven history as a reliable and economical burner solution for many applications.

Typical Characteristics:
— Responsive, uniform radiant output
— Ceramic surface temperatures above 1300 degrees F
— Excellent combustion performance
— Rugged thermal conductivity

Pros: Versatile, Low cost, Proven track record
Cons: Degradation in select applications, Service limitations, Minimal turndown ratio

Metal Fiber Gas Burners

High-grade metal fiber burners are an effective heat solution for high-end appliances. Their unique textured surface creates an optimal radiant profile and their construction properties allow for a multitude of complex geometric designs. They can also operate at a wide combustion or temperature range.

Typical Characteristics:
— Rugged and durable design
— Wide range of operating temperatures and combustion capacity
— Advanced geometric design options to maximize surface area

Pros: Excellent turndown ratio, Uniform heat on complex designs, Responsive performance
Cons: Cost, Serviceability limitations, Thermal expansion

Metal Foam Gas Burners

Metal alloy foam burners are similar to metal fiber burners but offer advanced combustion efficiencies as well. The material is constructed of a 3D foam metal substrate and is best applied to cutting-edge combustion appliances.

Typical Characteristics:
— Top temperature uniformity and turndown control
— Highly porous combustion surface area for quick response
— Durable mechanical and corrosion-resistant properties with moldable design options

Pros: Highest efficiencies, Excellent energy control, Extremely durable design, Uniformity
Cons: Cost, Serviceability limitations, Base media availability, Thermal expansion

Perforated Steel Gas Burners

These burners are typically constructed from stainless steel sheets or tubes. They have a proven and reliable track record through the decades. Endless base material options provide a variety of solutions to balance port loading criteria, burner longevity, cost considerations and mechanical strength.

Typical Characteristics:
— Proven and reliable track record
— Wide selection of burner media to fit most appliances
— Rugged and rigid design properties

Pros: Strength and rigidity, Affordability, Availability, Service friendly, Commonality
Cons: Design limitations, Commonality, Thermal expansion considerations

Wire Mesh Gas Burners

Wire mesh burners are made from woven metal and share operating properties with ceramic tile burners. They offer a cost-effective, reliable solution for many mainstream combustion appliance applications.

Typical Characteristics:
— Durable shipping and construction characteristics
— Effective heat output at pre-established firing rates
— Various wire mesh media for many applications

Pros: Cost effective, Uniform heat output, Simplified design
Cons: Limited operating range, Longevity, Warm-up or cycle time

Woven Ceramic Fabric (WCF) Gas Burners

WCF burners are known for their simple, flexible fabric membrane. They are often found in pre-mix interior-combustion applications and offer unique design potential. WCF burners provide a wide range of BTU outputs, loading, evenness and flame stability.

Typical Characteristics:
— Extreme output per sq. volume of surface area
— Little to no thermal expansion limitations and endless design possibilities
— A very unique and high-performing product applied to more advanced combustion appliance applications

Pros: High BTU loading, Design flexibility, Excellent pre-mix combustion properties, Unique
Cons: Costly, Mediocre responsiveness, Membrane availability, erviceability limitations
