Minijet Burner (MJ)

Minijet Burner

The Minijet Burner has been developed to provide a cost-effective solution for applications where space is limited and thermal ratings are relatively low. Typical applications are tundish preheating station where several small burners are required to direct heat towards critical areas such as the pouring nozzles and impact pads, or continuous kilns where firing patterns and zone configuration usually require a large number of small burners. Other applications include small ladle heaters or small reheating, forging and heat treatment furnaces where high velocity cannot be used. The Minijet is also used in low temperature applications such as process drying or heating as well as ovens where they can be used in conjunction with recirculating fans.
