The Power Flame Type FD Torches Other Burners

The Power Flame Type FD is a cutting-edge process and HVAC burner. It’s engineered to accommodate process heating appliances and air handling applications that need air streams directly heated.

The Model FD is a fixed air, direct air model that can fire either at 90 degrees or in line to the process air flow achieving an optimized turndown ratio of 30 to 1 or more. The counterpart to the FD — the Model FDM — is a modulating, indirect-fired air burner that can maintain on-ratio control over a 20 to 1 turndown.

In either case, the Power Flame Type FD offers a highly-reliable direct spark ignition, low maintenance, and high combustion efficiencies, which makes it suitable for a vast range of air heating and process applications.
