Working with an open flame is an integral part of many routine applications in life sciences and chemistry laboratories. But the dangers of working with alcohol burners, ordinary gas cookers or standard Bunsen burners connected to the house gas system should not be underestimated. Hence, it is not surprising that explosions and fires caused by such devices are common sources of laboratory accidents.
The FIREBOY Safety Bunsen Burner was developed to eliminate these dangers. Its elaborate design provides the user with the most convenient way of operation and at the same time meets today’s highest safety standards.
DVGW* safety certified, the FIREBOY is proven to ensure highest application safety by eliminating the risk of gas leaking and explosion. With the FIREBOY, gas flows and the flame ignites only if consciously activated by the operator. 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.
The FIREBOY is built to provide a convenient operation. All functions are easily controlled by the intuitive graphical user interface. Gas ignition is both rapid and safe – the FIREBOY requires no lighter or matches. The FIREBOY can be operated in different operation modes. The automatic ignition, triggered by the optical sensor or the foot switch, allows hands-free operation.
Independent and Portable
The FIREBOY provides you with maximal flexibility if equipped with a rechargeable battery and a gas cartridge adapter. All adapters can be easily connected to the FIREBOY by a proprietary quick coupling system – a perfect solution for working in a laminar bench flow or even outdoors.
Functional and Robust Design
The FIREBOY requires only minimal bench space. It is robust and can not tip over during use. The smooth, chrome-plated metal housing is easy to clean and provides both UV and solvent resistance. To protect the burner chamber from contamination when working with liquids, the folding stand at the base of the FIREBOY can be used to incline the device.
