BURNERS CT PILOT ASSEMBLY
An "assembly" a is set of manufactured parts or components that work together in unison as one mechanism or device. There are many different kinds of assemblies used in commercial restaurant equipment, including:
- Gear assemblies
- Pump assemblies
- Bearing assemblies
- Control panel assemblies
- Heating (exchanger) assemblies
- Motor control assemblies
- Sensor assemblies
- General assemblies
There are several types of burners that are used in restaurant equipment, including gas burners, electric burners, and induction burners. Gas burners are fueled by natural gas or propane and are commonly used in stoves, ovens, and grills. Electric burners are powered by electricity and are used in a variety of cooking equipment, including countertop griddles, woks, and induction cookers. Induction burners use electromagnetic fields to heat cooking vessels and are known for their energy efficiency and fast heating times.
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.
Burners are an essential component of many types of restaurant equipment and are used to prepare a wide range of dishes, from simple sandwiches to complex multi-course meals.
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.
