RIBBON BURNERS

The Ribbon type burners are designed for high heat release firing and would be specified where a continuous even flame is essential. They utilise special stainless steel ribbons for excellent flame retention and uniform heat distribution. Many thousands are installed on food processing lines and in particular the baking industry. Ribbon burners are also specified for applications where insufficient secondary air is available or higher heat inputs than atmospheric bar type burners can deliver are required. These burners ignite easily and the flame travels to all ports instantaneously, simplifying safety systems.
The standard pipe type ribbon burners are available in pipe sizes from 20mm BSP to 50mm BSP. Several ribbon constructions are possible to obtain various heat outputs and flame patterns.
All burners should be fitted with some form of ignition and flame safety. ACS have kits available to automate the entire process including accurate temperature control. Ribbon burners are usually coupled to a suitable air/gas mixing arrangement (see the Aspirators brochure) or if utilising high pressure gas to an appropriate inspirator.

ACS will recommend the best system to suit your needs.

SHORT SECTION RIBBON BURNERS

RB STANDARD TYPE

Ribbon burners are also available in short, back fed sections from 100mm to 300mm or special sizes on request. The standard short section ribbon burner utilises 32mm BSP pipe although any size can be specified. The standard gas entry is 15mm BSP female with an approximate flame width of 6mm.

These burners are used in any application where an intense, continuous flame is desired. The RB and RBW are particular suited to plastic flaming applications where the unique pattern produces perfectly treated sections. Please ask for the "Flame Treatment of Surfaces" brochure for more details on purpose built machines and burner assemblies. RBS.jpg (7721 bytes)

RBW HI HEAT TYPE

For applications requiring a greater heat input or a wider flame than the standard type, the RBW should be specified. These have a special ribbon construction with larger ports to deliver a high heat flame of approx. 15mm. Wider flame burners with specific flame patterns to match your requirements are possible.

ADJUSTABLE FLAME LENGTH

For applications requiring an adjustable flame length a slide adjustment can be fitted to the RBW style only. Please specify "S" with the part number. i.e. RBWS250 - wide flame type ribbon burner with a flame length of 250 mm fitted with an adjustable slide.

Note: All capacities are approximate only and depend on the gas/air mixture pressure available.
