FIREBOY Bunsen Burner
The FIREBOY Bunsen Burner from INTEGRA Biosciences features advanced temperature protection, fl ame monitor, and alarm display features that serve to protect both the operator and operating environment. To prevent unignited gas leakage, the burner automatically tries to reignite the fl ame if it accidentally extinguishes. If it does not, the unit will interrupt the gas supply. The burner automatically shuts off after a user-defi ned maximum burning time, which eliminates any danger if the unit is unintentionally left on. According to INTEGRA Biosciences, operating from a wide range of gas cartridges and powered from a battery makes the designed FIREBOY easy to use in any location.
