SHROUD, CONVECTION BURNER - WELDMENT
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.
In foodservice, the term convection refers to a method of heat transfer where food is heated by a moving heat source such as hot air inside an oven that is circulated by a fan. As convection circulates heat, it accelerates the cooking and evens the browning process.
Shrouds are commonly used in foodservice equipment to protect sensitive components, especially electronic control boards. A shroud refers to an item that covers or protects some other object from heat, fluids, aerosolized grease, or vapor. Shrouds offer a supplemental protective feature by providing restricted access to moving parts (fan blades, belts, gears, motors) or extremely hot or cold components.
Metal fabrication (weldment) is the creation of metal structures by cutting, bending and assembling processes. It is a value-added process involving the creation of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials.
Nieco has manufactured and sold over 60,000 broilers worldwide since production began back in 1969, and are currently installed in some of the world’s largest fast food chains. Not just limited to these large corporations, Nieco automatic broilers are currently installed in sports arenas, amusement parks and independent restaurants all over the globe.
