The 21st century alternative to the bunsen burner for safety conscious labs
The FIREBOY plus provides an intrinsically safe and highly versatile 21st century alternative to the traditional Bunsen burner.
The FIREBOY plus is an affordable mobile Bunsen burner with non-touch sensor ignition. Operating from a gas cartridge and powered from a rechargeable battery the FIREBOY plus can be used where ever you wish, safely. Measuring only 70 x 90 x 180 mm the compact FIREBOY plus comes supplied with three nozzles providing optimal operation with propane / butane, natural gas or town gas. With no interfering cables or tubes the 'hands-free' FIREBOY plus is extremely easy-to-use.
The FIREBOY plus is intrinsically much safer than traditional Bunsen burners having advanced temperature protection, flame monitor and alarm display features to protect the operator and operating environment. The gas ignition is both rapid and safe, with the FIREBOY plus no lighter or matches are required. The system has an infrared sensor that provides non-touch ignition of the gas supply when an object passes slowly through the sensor window at a distance of 6 to 8 centimetres. A foot-activated switch that automatically turns off five minutes after the last activation can also control the FIREBOY plus. Consequently the FIREBOY plus, unlike traditional Bunsen burners, minimises the consumption of oxygen and operating environment heat build-up making the laboratory a more pleasant place to work in.
For safety conscious laboratories undertaking sterilisation and sample heating applications the FIREBOY plus mobile Bunsen burner is an affordable and logical replacement for traditional Bunsen burners.
