The Hauck WHG wall hugger burner is designed for applications requiring even heat distribution with no flame impingement. The flame hugs the wall, allowing the burner to be placed close to the load. The WHG burner is available in six sizes, with a 16 osig (6,900 Pa) capacity range of 175,000 to 2.3 million Btu/hr (47 to 611 kW). WHG hot air versions are available for preheated air up to 800°F (425°C).
• Flat flame profile throughout firing
• Direct spark or gas pilot ignition
• Stable operation at ratio in cold furnace
• UV or flame rod flame supervision
• Preheated air up to 800°F (425°C)
• Flat flame produces even heating
• Immediate ramping to high fire reduces
furnace heat-up time
• Even heat distribution with no flame
The WHG flat flame pattern promotes even heating by radiation from the furnace walls and roof. The wall-hugging flame allows the burner to be placed close to the load without flame impingement.
The WHG incorporates a port for monitoring the pilot and main flames with either a UV scanner or flame rod. Direct spark or gas pilot ignition is available. The burner, mounting plate, and refractory tile are shipped as an assembled unit ready for mounting on the furnace. The WHG can be installed to fire in any position.
The WHG can be ignited and brought to high fire immediately, even in a cold, tight furnace. This reduces furnace heat-up time.
The WHG performs equally well when firing on-ratio, or with excess air limits ranging from 175 to 400% at 16 osig (6900 Pa) inlet air pressure.
The WHG may be operated in furnaces with chamber temperatures up to 2500°F (1370°C).
Also available as a complete packaged combustion system as the WHG Packaged Burner.
