Phoenix® Talon Burners

Astec Phoenix Talon logo

The Astec Phoenix Talon 2 burner utilizes the latest burner technology to deliver very low emissions combined with energy efficiency. With the optional silencing package, it’s even possible to have a phone conversation on the burner platform while it is firing.

  • The spin vanes and other components of the nose ensure flame stability and optimum shape.
  • The Phoenix® Talon uses significantly less electric power than conventional burners due to the variable frequency drive used to control its combustion air blower and low body pressure.
  • The Phoenix® Talon’s compact flame shape is compatible with most drums without complicated flame adjustment.

Advanced Emission Reduction

The Phoenix Talon 2 burners use the most advanced technology to precisely and completely mix the air and gaseous fuel to achieve an advanced low NOx and CO method called lean burn premix. They employ a multiple, parallel, turbulent, tube mixer to achieve near perfect mixing of fuel and air.

Electric Power Efficiency

The variable speed main combustion blower drive helps provide precise firing rate control and uses much less electrical energy. It also eliminates the need for an air damper and for drive motor adjustments and maintenance.

Firing Efficiency & Compact Flame Size

High quality mixing of air and fuel creates the most compact flame available with a small combustion zone. This ensures that all of the fuel is combusted for peak efficiency without taking away valuable dryer heating capacity.

Reliable Firing

For maximum reliability and start-up ease, Astec burners are thoroughly tested before shipping.
