The term appears in a short instruction for hand-held torches with burners. Throughout the text they mention only "brännare“, but his particular "takbrännare" has a different pressure setting (no other context).

agree  Magnus Ølmheim: To my knowledge the most common is side burner, which in the asker's case is refered to as simply a 'burner'. 'Roof burner' is slightly less common, but I'm yet to come by another translation.
