FireStar™ Bunsen Burners, Argos Technologies
FireStar™ units are compact, safe, and versatile Bunsen burners that operate with either house gas or disposable gas cartridges
Both models include built-in safety features that include automatic gas valve shut off should the flame extinguish. There is also overheating protection and a burner head control that detects faulty, clogged, or missing burner heads. A residual heat display illuminates as a warning to not touch the unit while the burner head is hot. The FireStar™ units are available in two models:
The FireStar™ ST provides an economical solution to Bunsen burner safety. This unit can be operated by the on/off button or by utilizing the supplied foot switch. The foot switch can be used in a "standard" or "stop/start" mode, depending on the application. As a safety precaution, the unit will automatically shut off after 1 hour.
The FireStar™ XT is more versatile than the ST. The FireStar™ XT can be operated with a touch-free IR sensor, footswitch, or using the on/off button. The animated, high-contrast graphic display is easy to read and program. Accidental ignition by the IR sensor is prevented by a double click safety feature. Additional safety features include monitored burn time and gas consumption, zero pressure shut off, and an overheat alarm. The automatic unit cut-off function prevents unintentional ignition of the flame when the burner has not been ignited for a longer period. The unit can be programmed to automatically shut off the flame at any point between 1 second and 2 hours. The flame will be extinguished once the pre-set time has been reached.
Both the FireStar™ ST and XT are CE, RoHS, and WEEE compliant. The units are DVGW certified and include a two-year warranty on parts and labor.
The FireStar™ features UV-resistant stainless steel housing and a removable burner head for easy cleaning. The dual knobs for adjusting gas and air flow provide a broad range of flame temperatures and intensity for any laboratory application.
