Thermal Engineering Corp - TEC - Infrared Gas Grill Replacement Parts

With the invention of the infrared gas burner, TEC became the best gas grill on the planet. Today, over 30 years later TEC grills are still grilling better than most of the competition. If you own a TEC infrared gas grill you already know this. Most TEC grill owners will repair their infrared gas grill rather than try to find something comparable in a new grill.

TEC replacement burners are simple to install and work as effectively as the original infrared burner in your TEC gas grill.

Servicing infrared gas grills for many years, I have seen one problem with the infrared gas burner over and over again. Moisture. If water gets into an infrared burner while it is not burning and the water gets into the housing it must be drained. Extract it from the grill and leave it upside down for a few hours. If the burner is lit while water is in the housing the ceramic tiles can crack. The water condensates from the intense heat and is forced from the stainless housing so fast a small crack will form n the tiles. While you are cooking, if the tiles shift from internal gas pressure the burner will go out.

Sometimes the flame will just die and sometimes it can make a "whoosh" or "pop" sound but either way it ts telling you to replace your infrared burner.

Infrared technology is still the best cooking technology on the planet. A typical infrared gas grill burner will grill for approximately thirteen years before the infrared burner tiles begin to arch convex and crack them selves. The TEC infrared grills are definately worth the expense of replacing the burner when they crack. Although the Patio one and the Sterling one replacement burnersare costly, if the new infrared burner provides another ten to thirteen years of grilling on the best technology on the planet it is worth every penny.

new TEC gas barbecue grill stainless steel burner with infrared heat

New TEC gas grills do not use ceramic tile pressurized grill infrared burners to generate the intense direct heat we associate with TEC infrared gas grill burners. New models TEC gas grill burners are stainless steel rectangles mounted right-to-left in the fire box. The intense heat is magnified by the stainless angles before and behind the new TEC burner. The exact angle causes heat to radiate within the fire box. The hoos is perfectly curved to move heat through the grill so stainless is not discolored or damaged by the heat.
