PILOT BURNER ASSEMBLY
An "assembly" is set of manufactured parts or components that work together in unison as one mechanism or device.
A burner is an element on a kitchen stove that generates localized heat for cooking. A gas burner is a device that produces a controlled flame by mixing a fuel gas such as natural gas, or propane with an oxidizer such as the ambient air and allowing for ignition and continued combustion. Gas may be supplied to the burner prior to combustion at a pressure sufficient to induce a supply of air to mix with it; the mixture passes through several long narrow openings or a nozzle to mix with additional air in the combustion chamber.
An infrared burner works by focusing the flame of a standard gas burner onto a ceramic tile that has thousands of microscopic holes in it. This converts the heat of the flame into infrared energy.
A pilot light is a small gas flame, usually natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas, which serves as an ignition source for a more powerful gas burner. In a pilot assembly, there is thermocouple sitting in the pilot light's flame. The electricity that is created from the flame contacting the thermocouple wire runs to a small electromagnetic valve and holds it open. If the pilot light blows out, the thermocouple quickly cools off. It stops generating electricity and the valve closes.
