The burner is the heart of each gas heating unit, on which efficiency, heat-generating capacity, economy, safety, and overall function depend. In it the fuel gas is mixed with oxygen, and also contains major automation and control mechanisms that ensure stable combustion in various modes. The same burner model, in principle, can be used in boilers and furnaces. Additionally, before we continue, if you need the best furnace cleaners, don’t hesitate to call the best and the most trusted Furnace Cleaning company in your city. They are licensed and they offer the fair price for the most satisfying furnace cleaning service.
One-level atmospheric burners are easy to operate, integrate well with the heating plate, no need to be connected to the electricity grid
Gas burners are installed in the stove on the front side, approximately where the stove door is usually located in the wood-burning stove. An important burner technical indicator is nominal strength (shown in kW), which mainly depends on the ability of a particular burner model to burn a certain amount of gas for a certain time.
Types of gas burners for stoves
According to the type of heat output control from the burner, there are:
one stage (automatically turning on or turning off the fuel supply);
two stages (heating devices can enter economical heating mode, for example, from 100% to 40%);
floating adjustment (current power change – in the range of 10-100%).
With this type of air supply, gas burners for furnaces are divided into:
The atmosphere (air is sucked in “gravity” under the action of a thrust, no electric binding, no more than 90% efficiency);
pressurized (the fan supplies air when space is closed, there is a dependence on the power supply, efficiency above 95%).
Pay attention! In devices that consume rock heat (especially at high power), or if the gas melting furnace is made by hand – the burner may overheat, therefore it is necessary to use models that are resistant to high temperatures such as “NT”.
