Intrinsically Safe Bunsen Burner Gains Wide Market Acceptance
Nov 09 2009
Integra Biosciences AG has reported strong market acceptance of its DVGW certified FIREBOY intrinsically safe Bunsen burner in the year since its launch.
The new FIREBOY is proven to ensure high 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 FIREBOY requires no lighter or matches. With the FIREBOY the gas supply flows and the flame ignites only if consciously activated by the operator. The new FIREBOY offers labs a choice of flame ignition via 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 automatic shut off after a user-defined maximum burning time, eliminates any danger if the unit is unintentionally left on. Consequently the new FIREBOY, unlike traditional Bunsen burners, minimises the consumption of gas and electricity in airconditioned laboratories and so reduces heat build-up making the laboratory a more pleasant place to work in. Operating from a wide range of gas cartridges - the battery powered FIREBOY can be used wherever you wish, eliminating the need for connection to an installed gas distribution system. With no interfering cables or tubes the ‘hands-free’ FIREBOY is extremely easy-to-use.
