Recently I've put an emphasis on my client's offering of Siemens Combustion Controls. Today I'm going to switch focus to another brand, Eclipse, part of HONEYWELL THERMAL SOLUTIONS.
In particular, I'd like to talk about the Eclipse ImmersoJet. This is a tube fired burner. As one might guess from it's name, it is intended to be used where the combustion tube is immersed in a liquid. That liquid might be product, or might be a process liquid. I recently found out that they can even be used in deep fryers.
Another application that I had to look up was "Pickling Tanks". I couldn't imagine that making pickles would require that kind of heat. I found out that "pickling" in this context is a method of removing stains and impurities from the surface of metal.
The Eclipse ImmersoJet is capable of firing through a small diameter tube. This leads to increases in efficiency, saving you fuel and allowing your product or process to come up to temp much more quickly. The narrower tubes can also be engineered longer and may allow a smaller tank to be used for a particular installation.
The Eclipse ImmersoJet is offered in five sized from just under 200000 BTU/hour all the way up to 8 Million!

I recently read an article about a manufacturer with an annealing furnace that was manufactured in the 1980s using dozens of Tube Burners being fired by a 5" radiant tube. With a desired product temperature of 1650° to 1660°, they needed to run the burner at 1750°. A spike in fuel prices inspired them to look for a way to increase the efficiency of their furnace.
Their heating system specialist, who often works with Eclipse Combustion products, contacted Eclipse to determine the best products for their application. Eclipse Tube Firing Burners (TFB) were suggested, along with Eclipse Bayonet-Ultra Recuperators installed into their existing radiant tubes. The company was experiencing burner efficiency below 35% and the new system was planned to achieve upwards of 60% efficiency. The company reported, even on a short month of production, a fuel savings of nearly $9000.00 and they were able to run their burners at 1665°, much closer to their product temperature. The company reported improved product consistency as well. They are now able to better control the temperature of their product, thus improving the quality they ship to their customers.
My client, Thermal Equipment Systems, Inc. can help you in similar fashion. If you have a burner that's due for a retrofit and you'd like to make sure you get the best combination of products to maximize efficiency, maximize product quality and minimize costs, give them a call at (813) 681-8910 or contact them on their website.
According to Wikipedia, Siemens AG is a German conglomerate based in Berlin & Munich. They are the largest manufacturing and electronics company in Europe with international offices.
One part of Siemens is known as SIEMENS COMBUSTION CONTROLS (often shortened to SCC). As one might gather from the name, this division is dedicated to products used in the industrial heating industry, and specifically, in control parts such as valves and flame safeguard controls and infrared flame detectors.
The Siemens Combustion Controls product line is useful for boilers, furnaces and industrial ovens from bread baking ovens to powder coating and kilns.
Siemens (SCC) can provide more than individual combustion components, but can pre-assemble them such as pairing an actuator to a VKG Butterfly valve.
No matter what burner part you're looking for, Thermal Equipment Systems will be happy to help you find what you need.
Fuel Efficient BurnerA major cost of any industrial burner system is it's fuel. One way of improving the fuel efficiency of an industrial furnace is to recover some of the waste heat from the exhaust and use it to pre-heat the combustion gasses.
Self-Recuperative BurnerEclipse has integrated a silicon carbide recuperator to do just that.
The product I'm talking about is the Eclipse ThermJet Self-Recuperative Burner
Eclipse is recognized as a leader in the industry. The combination of their ThermJet technology and the self-recuperator can yeild up to 50% fuel savings, therefore saving you / your company money!

Choosing the right industrial burner for your process is critical to the success of your product and to the budget of the operation.
You'll need to know the overall power of your burner, measured in BTU (British Thermal Units)/Hour. You'll need to know the maximum temperature your burner is capable of. This may be important to the bring up time or your system. If you need a quick bring up time with a moderate maximum heat, the turndown ratio will be important to consider. You'll need to choose the geometry of the flame produced by your burner. That is, does your process call for a jet flame, an extended jet flame, a spiral, or some other geometry to produce the correct heat in the correct area without impingement. (That is, without burning, scorching or otherwise damaging your product with a hot-spot). If your process requires indirect heat, you may choose a tube fired burner where the tube separates the flame from the process.
How will you start your burner?
You may choose a system that operates on a pilot flame, or you may choose direct spark ignition.
What fuel works best for you?
What fuel is easily available in your area? Does your process exclude a particular fuel due to chemical incompatibilities? What about changing fuel prices? Is it easy to switch from one fuel to another if there is a significant price shift, without major changes to your equipment? You may need a system that burns Propane, Butane or natural gas (CNG)

Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) are poisonous, reactive gases which form when fuel is burned at high temperatures. NOx pollution comes from automobiles and off road vehicles like construction equipment and boats as well as industrial sources such as electric plants, industrial burners and turbines. NOx is a strong oxidizing agent and has a large influence on ozone (smog) in the hot summer.
Facilities that include high temp burners might consider a low NOx emission burner for the well being of their own neighborhood as well as to help get or stay in compliance with clean air regulation.
One such low emission burner is offered by Eclipse. They have named it "Furnnox". The Eclipse Furnnox is offered at powers up to 1.5 million BTU/hr and NOx emissions less than 30 ppm at 3% O2 and is well suited for use in furnaces, melters, and incinerators.
Whatever heat source you need, Thermal Equipment Systems, Inc. is sure to have it.

Many brick and tile kilns have very thick walls to help insulate them for efficiency and safety. These thick walls present a challenge for burner manufacturers and oven operators. A conventional burner may cause over heating inside the kiln wall, and uneven heating inside the kiln.
Eclipse has solved these problems with their ExtensoJet nozzle-mix burner whose nozzle extends through the kiln wall and uses a high velocity stream of gas to ensure proper circulation of combustion product and uniform heating of the kiln and the materials being heated.
These burners accept CNG (natural gas), propane and butane, and are compatible with UV Scan and Flame Rod flame control systems.
Ceramicindustry.com reports that these burners also use dramatically less fuel than other burners that might be used for similar applications.

Industrial burners can be quite complicated. You have to account for fuel flow, air intake, flame stability, impediment and host of other considerations. There's good reason for the complexity. We're dealing with flammable substances and extreme heat.
If it suits your needs, one of the simplest options is the Eclipse ThermAir Burner. It's fixed air operation give you one less variable to deal with and it's compatible with various gases like Natural Gas (CNG), Propane (LP) and Butane.
HIGH TURN DOWN RATIO
You'll want your oven or other work to get to it's proper temperature quickly, without getting too hot. The industry calls this "oven bring up" and "temperature over shoot". The feature that controls this is the turn down ratio. The ThermAir has a 30:1
turn down, allowing for quick bring up without over shoot.
This industrial burner can be fired with a direct spark, reducing the amount of equipment you have to purchase.
INDUSTRIAL BURNER APPLICATIONS
You're likely to choose the Eclipse ThermAir Burner for applications such as dryers and ovens.
See my client, Thermal Equipment Systems, Inc. for help choosing the right industrial burner for your project.
Thermal Equipment Systems, Inc. also carries replacement parts for industrial burners.
If your industrial heat application requires high heat in a small furnace, you have to be aware of flame impingement upon your work or upon the surfaces of the furnace.
The Eclipse Deep Spiral Flame Burner solves this with a flat spiral flame that follows the contour of the furnace without the direct impingement of a jet flame.
This allows the heating to take place closer to the work while ensuring a consistent furnace temperature without hot spots.
The Eclipse Deep Spiral Flame Burner can burn CNG, Propane or Butane with very little changeover.
