Named after Robert Bunsen, a Bunsen burner is a common piece of laboratory equipment that produces a single open gas flame which is used for heating, sterilization, and combustion.  The gas can be either natural gas (mainly methane) or a liquefied petroleum gas, such as propane, butane or a mixture of the two.  The invention of the Bunsen burner opened up new opportunities for the use of natural gas.
