Pilot burners are necessary to secure ignition of main burners in the application of industry furnaces and combustion plants. The GFI model series in its standard design will be delivered with an integrated ignition transformer, ionisation electrode and ionisation flame scanner (both SIL 2 certified and EC type approved).

GFI models in their standard version, are approved for intermittent operation. Due to its maritime climate resistant aluminium housing, a SIL 2 flame scanner and protection class IP 65, this basic version can be applied almost anywhere.
The integrated components as well as material selection allow for use as a pilot burner. Through the application of SIL 3 flame monitoring, operator‘s requirements with regards to a modern, up to date safety technology can be met.
