Abstract : A series of perforated plates are placed in alignment with a horizontally disposed burner tube and canted to spread the flame from the burner axially and transverse the axis of the tube. Each perforation is accompanied by an upper scoop that extends downward and toward the tube to direct some of the upward flowing flame through the perforation. Thereby, the flame is spread in both length and width to cover a larger grating surface above the tube. Patents. (jhd)
