This is a burner technology that uses electronic motor speed control, electronic gas valve flow control and a mass air flow sensor to continuously vary the air fuel mixture for optimum combustion efficiency. A short Youtube explanation can be viewed by googling "gas blower with lambda constant system". This is the stuff of the future, just like the difference between ECU controlled fuel injection and carburetors in the automotive world... my opinion only...
ebmpapst is the inventor/manufacturer...
