Aconit®: cylindrical or flat premix gas burner

Bekaert is the inventor of the reliable and proven Aconit® technology. It is a high performing metallic surface burner. Based on its special design you can apply Aconit® in your residential, commercial and industrial applications at loads from 1kW (3.8 kBtu/h) to 1MW (3.8MBtu/h) and beyond.

Aconit® burners are equipped with the Bekaert Bekinit® material. This is a knitted metal fiber, produced within Bekaert, which has exceptional performance in flame stability and heat insulation. It supports burner customization because the elastic properties allow mounting on all different shapes, including complex 3-D shapes.

Together with our Technical Centre you will be able to develop your special Aconit® burner with a short time to market. These solutions enable your company to access new markets and consolidate your position with your existing customer base.

Benefit exclusively from Bekaert's leading experience in the combustion technology!


  • Because of high flexibility of the burner surface material the burner can adopt any shape to meet your specific requirements
  • Aconit® solutions are possible for all heat exchanger lay-outs
  • High reliability because the knitted material forms a 3-D structure which implies a better heat transfer and therefore a lower surface temperature
  • Co-develop environmental clean and durable burners that fuel your business!
