How does the ignition process actually work?
The consistency of the raw material to be burned defines the heat required for ignition. Of course, less wattage is needed to ignite woodchips and wood pellets than whole logs. Wattages as low as 200 - 400 are capable of igniting pellets. A lot of the time, this is done with a simple heating rod. Hot air can, of course, also be used in this process for efficiency. A 600 - 1100 W heat gun, such as Lesiter’s IGNITER, is perfect for this application. Woodchips, for example, are most easily ignited with a wattage of 1100 W or higher.
The disadvantage of igniting with air is that small, light chips may be blown away. But Leister has a suitable solution to this as well: a slowly rotating 600 W motor, like the IGNITER BM 600W heat gun.
Leister hot air is the solution. Because with a hot air blower the wood in the fireplace is quickly lit - without matches or lighter.
individuals also light their barbecue in the garden. Barbecuing is very popular and the barbecue season has now extended from summer to the whole year. The barbecue charcoal is quickly and cleanly ignited with a Leister hot-air blower, without annoying barbecue lighters and dangerous fire accelerators. The BBQ becomes enjoyable without the smell of fuel and less dangerous by avoiding flash fires. And that in the record time of a few minutes.
