The Power Flame Type FDM Burner 

The Power Flame Type FDM Burner is manufactured to meet your process heating needs. It can also meet the needs of air handling systems that require indirect or direct heating of the air stream. The direct-fired, fixed air model FD can fire at either at 90 degrees or in line with the process air flow — achieving turndowns of 40:1 or greater. However, the indirect fired, modulating air model FDM burner can achieve on-ration control over a 20:1 turndown. 

The Power Flame Type FDM is suitable for an expansive list of air heating and process heating applications — thanks to its high combustion efficiencies, reliable direct spark ignition, and low maintenance. As a part of an integrated combustion package, the Type FDM is available with prepiped and prewired gas trains. It can be configured to meet your specific requirements as well as your any local or national codes. 

The Type FDM Is Engineered for High-Turndown Operations

The Power Flame Type FDM is engineered for high turndown operation firing into heat exchangers for air handling applications or directly into process streams of air, such as ovens and other types of lower temperature industrial applications. The Type FDM burner is fitted with moveable air dampers to the inlet of the blower assembly that facilitates on-ratio control over an impressive 20:1 turndown range. The Type FDM burner is ideally suited for indirect fired units requiring high turndowns. It can also be applied on direct fired applications where on-ratio control is required.
