About Oil Burners and Controls
An oil burner is a part attached to an oil furnace, water heater, or boiler. It is an electronic ignition system that provides the ignition of heating oil/biodiesel fuel used to heat air or water via a heat exchanger. In portable commercial oil heaters (AKA torpedo heaters or oil fired heaters), they provide the spark that ignites the oil. Products vary by mounting type and other considerations.
