Wire Mesh Burners
Solaronics wire mesh burner is a cost-effective burner for a variety of applications. This burner often features a flat square or rectangle panel with lower flexibility. The wire mesh burner is very robust against shipping and impact damage. Gaskets are not used in the fabrication of the burner so there is no chance of contamination occurring.
Wire Mesh Burner Specifications
The wire mesh burner can maintain a continuous operating temperature of 1,300°C (max) and typical loading of 200 - 400 BTU/Sq. inch in infrared. Due to the smaller depth of the wire mesh, this makes the heater more susceptible to backlight or backflash. Since the burner is completely metal, it is more conductive than a tile burner and provides a strong flame sense capability. This reduces nuisance shut-offs and service calls due to a weak signal.
Our wire mesh burner can be manufactured in different materials depending on your application. These materials include Inconel, Incoloy, Kanthal, various stainless steel and much more. You can anticipate a medium warm up period of less than a minute to get the full temperature to output infrared (IR), and it will oxidize over a period of time depending on the environment.
Wire Mesh Burner Applications
The wire mesh burner can be used in a variety of industries including commercial and residential cooking. Some of the typical applications these burners are used in are broilers in ovens, open vat fryers, and rotisserie burners in grills.
