HOT START IGNITION DANGER PREVENTION

As made compulsory by the D35-386 norm, It must not be possible while the burner is still hot to :

hot start ignition
  • refill the burner

  • restart the Burner

When ethanol is in contact with hot surfaces, it vaporizes quickly. Ethanol vapors, heavier than air, have a tendency to remain within the confines of the fireplace.

When igniting the liquid in the burner, vapors will also be ignited creating a hot start ignition effect. If there is a high concentration of vapors, ignition becomes dangerous and several serious accidents have occurred with non secure burners.

burners are equipped with temperature sensors and locking systems controlled by an electronic microprocessor.
