The German chemist Robert Bunsen introduced Bunsen Burner in 1855.

The bunsen burner is a device for combing a flammable gas with amounts of air before ignition. It can provide a hot flame.


Bunsen Burner Parts 

1. Flame stabilizer

2. Adjustable air ports

3. Gas inlet

4. Gas control knob

1. Flame stabilizer

It is where the flame come out. It connect to a barrel which is around 5 inches long tube. The barrel contains air intake opens that mix air and gas together. 

when natural gas and air draw into the barrel bypassing the air intake opening, the gas and air mixture ignites through the top end of the barrel to make it functional. 

2. Adjustable air ports

This is the part that allow air into the burner. Adjust the air pots, you can get different flames. 

3.  Gas inlet

The gas inlet is where gas get in. 

4. Gas control knob

This is the part to control the gas volume.

Bunsen Burner Flame

Adjusting the gas valve on the Bunsen burner changes the volume of gas flow; the more gas entering the burner, the larger the flame.

The collar can be rotated to adjust oxygen intake. In general, the more oxygen present, the more intense and blue the flame will be. Less oxygen lends to a weaker yellow flame. The more oxygenated blue flame is both hotter and more controlled than the oxygen-deprived flame; scientists generally prefer a controlled blue flame.

Bunsen Burner Function

When Robert Bunsen invented the Bunsen Burner in 1852, the device is used in the scientific laboratory. It can continuous heating materials and liquids.

Now the Bunsen Burner can be even use for hand craft making, glass blowing, soldering and so on.

The Cybring Bunsen Burner designed a universal head, which can continuous heating at a fixed angle. And the height of Cybring Bunsen Burner can be changed.These features bring more possibilities to the product.
