Natural Gas: Reverberatory Screen Heaters

Reverberatory screen heaters are similar to ported tile heaters, except they have an alloy wire screen above the surface of the tile. The flames then operate between the tile and the wire screen, technically termed as "externally submerged".

Why a screen?
The screen stabilizes the heater at higher firing rates and cross drafts, and increases the amount of radiant energy generated. Maximum operating temperature is substantially higher than ported tile at 2200°F.

How It Works:

  1. Natural gas and air mixture pass through a valve
  2. Mixture jets ignite at the surface of the tile, forming a thin flame sheet
  3. Mixture burns as a series of discrete flames, contained between the tile and screen

Applications: General industrial, Paper Drying, Paints & Coatings, Food Processing, Textiles
