HEGWEIN is a leading manufacturer of fuel-fired heavy-duty igniters, pilot burners and gas burners for industrial applications. HEGWEIN products are well-known for their superior quality, outstanding performance, excellent flame stability, smooth operation and long service life. HEGWEIN pilots create a long and stable flame that provides for the safe ignition of a main burner under various load conditions.

Gas-fired igniters and pilot burners, and oil-fired igniters
Our scope includes gas-fired igniters and pilot burners with heat releases ranging from 2kW up to 10MW, and also oil-fired igniters with a thermal capacity of up to 3.6MW. Many of them can be used as class 1, class 2 or class 3 igniters according to NFPA regulations.
Typical fields of application are industrial furnaces, petrochemical furnaces, utility boilers in power stations and rotary kilns (which may require an igniter length of up to 18,000mm). For the marine industry we supply special pilot burner versions that fire marine diesels of A or B type.

Gas burners
Our gas burners also come in different sizes with heat releases ranging from 15kW to 4.5MW. Most of them offer a turn-down ratio of 10:1. They are typically used for homogenising furnaces in the aluminium industry, being placed into driers, ladle pre-heaters, post-combustion units and all kinds of process-firing systems.
All our igniters, burners and pilot burners feature a compact, lightweight, yet sturdy power head in a metal housing with an integrated high-tension ignition module, a self-checking ionisation flame monitor for continuous operation, and a flame relay (FM, AGA, GOST and EN-approved) with one SPDT contact that may be integrated into any existing burner-management system.
