INTEGRA Flame Sterilization


Traditionally Bunsen burners are widely used as standard equipment for routine flame sterilization work. However, the danger of working with traditional Bunsen burners connected to a gas distribution system should not be underestimated. A major source of danger is posed by burners that leak highly flammable gas. The FIREBOY Portable Safety Bunsen developed by INTEGRA is a safe alternative. FIREBOY not only prevents the danger of gas leaks, but also reduces the risks of fire or burns if unintentionally left on.

How it works

The FIREBOY Portable Safety Bunsen burner is designed to maximize safety by preventing the risk of gas leakage and resulting fire hazards.

1) Flame monitoring prevents gas leakage
2) Automatic ignition - no lighter or matches needed
3) Gas cartridge adapters - independent from any gas distribution system
4) Optional battery - no power supply needed

Safe Operation

DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water) safety certified, FIREBOY ensures highest application safety by preventing the risk of gas leakage and explosion. Using FIREBOY, gas flows only if the flame is consciously ignited. When the flame is inadvertently extinguished, FIREBOY automatically attempts to reignite the flame. If it fails to reignite, the gas valve is closed to prevent gas leakage. An automatic shut off after a user-defined maximum burner time eliminates any danger if the unit is unintentionally left on.

Convenient Handling

All functions of FIREBOY are easily accessed by the intuitive user interface. Gas ignition is both rapid and safe – FIREBOY requires no lighter or matches. The FIREBOY can be operated in different operation modes. Automatic ignition, triggered by the optical sensor or the foot switch, allows non-contact operation.

Independent and Portable

FIREBOY provides you with maximal flexibility if equipped with a rechargeable battery and a gas cartridge adapter. All adapters can be easily connected to the FIREBOY by a proprietary quick coupling system – a perfect solution for working in a laminar bench flow or even outdoors.

Functional and Robust Design

FIREBOY requires only minimal bench space. It is robust and can not tip over during use. The smooth, chrome-plated metal housing is easy to clean and provides both UV and solvent resistance. The folding stand at the base can be used to incline the device. In this way, the burner chamber is protected from spillages when working with liquids.


Surface flame sterilization is a common procedure in many laboratories to prevent bacterial, fungal or viral contamination. However, most Bunsen burners lack mobility and have a relatively narrow flame which make it troublesome to sterilize large surfaces. INTEGRA has developed a handheld Bunsen burner that meets these special needs. Designed like a pistol and equipped with piezo-electric ignition FLAMEBOY is easily portable. The extra broad flame makes it particularly convenient to sterilize large surfaces.

How it works

FLAMEBOY is a portable, handheld and battery-free Bunsen burner that provides piezo-electric ignition at the push of a button. Equipped with a gas cartridge adapter, FLAMEBOY is portable and independent of any gas distribution system and at hand wherever needed. The size and the temperature of the flame can easily be adjusted by an air and a gas regulator.

Main features

1. Piezoelectric ignition

Immediate ignition independent of any power source or battery.
2. Ergonomic design

The handy pistol grip of FLAMEBOY provides convenient holding and use.
3. Various gas adapters for gas connections and -cartridges

Compatible with different gas types. If equipped with gas cartridge adapter, FLAMEBOY is independent of any gas distribution system and at hand whenever needed.

Source of Gas

In addition to gas cartridge adapters, the FLAMEBOY may also be connected to a gas distribution system or gas cylinder and used as a fixed installation in the laboratory.
