Summary

Theory and benefits of jet firing with high-velocity excess air burners and proportional control (amplitude modulation) are reviewed. Theory and benefits of jet firing with pulse control (frequency modulation) are explained. The pulse/proportional firing system, which can fire either way (AM/FM) on demand, is described.
