Gun Style Air Heater: A Direct Fired Air Heater


Overview of Gun Style Air Heaters:

Stelter & Brinck designs and manufactures three types of Direct Fired Air Heaters: Packaged Air Heaters, Duct Style Air Heaters and Gun Style Air Heaters. This post will focus on Gun Style Air Heaters.

This type of air heater is used in applications where the air stream is dirty or low in oxygen. Gun Style Air Heaters provide the highest mass flows and air temperatures of the 3 styles of Direct Fired Heaters. As suggested by the name, this type of heater looks like a barrel, built around the combustion components.

Annealing, metal curing, glass curing, chemical, sludge and paint drying are just a few of the many industries that utilize Gun Style units. Stelter & Brinck can design these units to be fired on gaseous fuels, light, medium or heavy fuel oils or a combination of oil and gas.
