  • Patent number: 9587854
    Abstract: A method of assembling multiple low NOx burners including the step of assembling multiple bodies, each body including a multiple first burner ports connected to a first burner inlet and multiple second burner ports connected to a second burner inlet. The method also including the step of selecting one of the bodies and inserting a first inlet tube into the second burner inlet to provide a fuel/air mixture to the second burner ports at a first rate. The method also including the step of selecting one of the bodies and inserting a second inlet tube into the second burner inlet to provide the fuel/air mixture to the second burner ports at a second rate different than the first rate.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: November 12, 2015
    Date of Patent: March 7, 2017

  • Patent number: 9212817
    Abstract: A method of assembling multiple low NOx burners (100), a low NOx burners (100) and a tankless gas-fired water heater (500) are disclosed. The method includes the step of assembling multiple bodies (152), each body (152) includes multiple first burner ports (135) connected to a first burner inlet (125) and multiple second burner ports (150) connected to a second burner inlet (140). The method also includes the step of selecting one of the bodies (152) and inserting a first inlet tube (120, 220, 320, 420) into the second burner inlet (140) to provide a fuel/air mixture to the second burner ports (150) at a first rate. The method also includes the step of selecting one of the bodies (152) and inserting a second inlet tube (120, 220, 320, 420) into the second burner inlet (140) to provide the fuel/air mixture to the second burner ports (150) at a second rate different from the first rate.

  • Publication number: 20140372166
    Abstract: A system and a method for tracking agricultural commodities, such as crop inventories, is based on measuring a flow of crop through an equipment unit during a period of time, and determining the flow of crop through the unit to be a transfer event. More particularly, there is measured a quantity of crop in a first equipment unit; followed by a detection of a presence of one or more additional equipment units proximate the first equipment unit; and by a determination of at least one crop transfer event between the first equipment and at least one of the additional equipment units based on a change in the quantity of crop in the first equipment unit and the detection of presence.

  • Publication number: 20120276488
    Abstract: A gas-fired water heater includes a pilot assembly that provides a pilot flame deflector. The pilot flame deflector causes the pilot flame to surround a hot junctions end of a thermopile. The flame deflector does not cover a cold junctions end of the thermopile, such that the cold junctions are ventilated. A temperature differential between the hot and cold junctions is increase by ventilating the cold junctions and surrounding the hot junctions with the pilot flame. The temperature differential is further increased by radiant and convective heat applied to the hot junctions as a result of the flame deflector.
