Zizers, Switzerland –?? A new white paper from INTEGRA describes the security features of modern safety Bunsen burners in relation to the inherent dangers of flame sterilization* using alcohol burners, gas cookers or a traditional Bunsen burner connected to a gas distribution system.

Safety Bunsen Burners were developed to ensure high safety by eliminating the risk of gas leaking and explosion inherent in using other burner types. Advanced temperature protection, user-defined maximum burning time and alarm display features serve to protect both the operator and operating environment.

With this new generation of Safety Bunsen Burner the gas ignition is both immediate and safe as no lighter or matches are needed. Unlike traditional burners, the gas supply flows only if a gas flame is detected by the flame monitor.

Operating from a wide range of gas cartridges – the battery powered Safety Bunsen Burner was developed to be used where ever you wish, eliminating the need for connection to an installed gas distribution system.

With no interfering cables or tubes the ‘hands-free’ the DVGW certified FIREBOY Safety Bunsen Burner from INTEGRA has been proven in thousands of installations worldwide to be intrinsically safe and extremely easy-to-use.
