LTRE - Transition® LED Enclosed High Efficiency Architectural Lens |
Perfect for health care environments, the LTRE has specialty options such as antimicrobial paint, which resists bacterial growth on exposed painted surfaces, wet location listing, and a full length layer of gasketing.
High performance centrifugal blowers, air knives and nozzle manifolds |
Paxton Products’ Air Systems are custom engineered to optimize drying, blow off of your products. We couple high efficiency centrifugal blowers with custom engineered air knives and manifolds, replacing compressed air or low efficiency blowers.
Igniters are devices or assemblies that produce a specific level of heat in order to initiate a larger combustion reaction. Within industrial applications, igniters are manufactured for various engine and burner systems and applications including process heaters and high pressure washers. They are produced in simple and complex designs according to application use. This guide distinguishes the characteristics, functions and common issues associated with several of the most common industrial igniters, including pyrotechnic, hot surface and spark (or electrode) devices.
Pyrotechnic igniters are frequently controlled electrically. They are initiated to ignite materials that generally have complex ignition requirements. Thermites are apyrotechnic mixture of metal powder and oxide, which generates a reaction called a thermite response. While this reaction is not typically explosive, it can produce rapid bursts of high temperatures under the right conditions. This reaction’s higher temperatures are generally concentrated on a very small area for a short period of time.
These devices may require maintenance to adhere to safety standards, which should be verified through the manufacturer. In some applications, they may be demanding devices to operate as they require installation for individual engine tests.
Hot Surface Igniters
Invented in 1969, these igniters are composed of advanced ceramic materials. These devices are also the most commonly used electronic ignition systems today. They are generally employed for applications such as space furnaces and heaters. Hot surface igniters are commonly used for their reliability and durability potential.
