A Safe Alternative to Traditional Bunsen Burners

Sep 01 2009

The new generation FIREBOY from Integra Biosciences AG, is an intrinsically safe alternative to the traditional Bunsen burner connected to a laboratory gas supply.

DVGW safety certified the new FIREBOY is proven to ensure highest application safety by eliminating the risk of gas leaking and explosion inherent in using traditional Bunsen burners. Advanced temperature protection, flame monitor and alarm display features serve to protect both the operator and operating environment. Gas ignition is both rapid and safe - the new FIREBOY
requires no lighter or matches. With the FIREBOY the gas supply flows and the flame ignites only if consciously activated by the operator. Laboratories have the choice of FIREBOY units where the flame is ignited by a hands-free infrared optical sensor, a foot switch or a button. To prevent unignited gas leakage, the FIREBOY automatically tries to reignite the flame if it accidentally extinguishes. Should it for any reason fail to do so, the unit will interrupt the gas supply. An automatically shut off after a user-defined maximum burning time, eliminates any danger if the unit is unintentionally left on.

Operating from a wide range of gas cartridges, powered from a battery and with no interfering cables or tubes, the ‘hands-free’ FIREBOY is extremely easy-to-use.
