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)
