Burners for pellets and Agro-Pellets

General information

Pellet burner  – what is it?

A pellet burner is a device that may be connected to a currently operated boiler in order to modernize it and start the heating process fuelled by pellets, or a biomass fuel. If you have been using coal, oil or gas for heating – now you can quickly and easily change it by installing our pellet burner.

The following image shows the structure of the burner. Detailed technical information is presented in tab  Burner principle of operation.

 

Watch the video presenting operation of the burner.

Technical expertise and innovative approach

We have been producing pellet burners since November 2013, but our company was established in 1994. Our advantage is based on a wide technical knowledge and innovative solutions in many areas. Operating as “Biuro Techniczno Inżynierskie Jan Gumkowski” we design and implement complete process lines. From the very beginning of our work on the burner with rotary combustion chamber we constantly extend our knowledge on heating techniques to be a trustworthy partner to our customers.

No need for burner cleaning – we use a rotary combustion chamber

Most of popular burners require cleaning event twice a week. Our burner uses an innovative cleaning mechanism – rotary combustion and blower chamber – now you don’t have to clean the burner at all. The principle of operation is very simple – simple solutions are always the best. We started our research work on this solution already in 2010. Our independent research resulted in a unique design of the burner. We introduced it to the Polish market in 2013 and since then we have implemented a few improvements that made the burner a very user-friendly product.

Our rotary combustion chamber  ensures your convenience and comfort  -you save time, as there is no need for cleaning the burner and you may use burning pellets of poorer quality and agro-pellets.

First on the market

The combustion chamber rotates and cleans itself of ash and slag, ensuring constant and efficient operation of the burner,  preventing any capacity drops and clogging.

We offer you state-of-the-art devices – fully automated burners for burning fuel pellets and agro-pellets. We guarantee the highest quality workmanship and detailed design.

We were first on the market to introduce  self-cleaning burner and our technology is patent-protected by  the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland.

Currently we offer burners with a capacity of 5-250kW, but soon our offer will also include burners with rotary combustion chamber having a capacity of 300kW, 350kW and 500 kW.

What makes the difference – why you should choose KIPI burner

  • Rotary combustion and blower chamber
    The first version of the burner had only combustion chamber rotating – now the combustion and blower are of the rotary type – this makes both chamber to clean themselves of ashes and slag, without any capacity drops during the cleaning process.
  • Dividing air distribution into the primary and after-burning air
    This solution increases the efficiency of the combustion and reduces the emissions.
  • Seamless combustion chamber
    It ensures the lack of welding stresses, which may lead to deformation and cracking of the chamber. This means longer operational periods between servicing inspections.
  • Bearing method
    It may seem that this is a technical detail, but in this case it is very important. Rotation of the chamber and the temperature of make the bearing solution extremely important. An improper method may cause rapid wear of bearings or completely seizing of the chamber. It may cause other problems: clogging of the chamber, backfire, permanent damage to the chamber, damage to the drive of the combustion chamber. We use our own patent-pending arrangement of bearing, which is reliable and ensures trouble-free and long operation of combustion chambers.
