Open Source Gas-Oxygen Burner Torch

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


- A basic torch that burns a gas such as propane, methane, or hydrogen

- Used primarily for metal furnaces and forges, as well as ceramic or glass kilns

- This one uses a pure oxygen supply such as a tank, or generator

- Oxygen is added at the rear of the pipe, this is later mixed with fuel near the middle, it is then expelled and burned in a divergent nozzle

Used For

- High Temp Furnaces

- High Temp Forges

- High Temp Kilns (glass or ceramic)

- A really good BBQ (see this for a good idea)

Industry Standards


Existing Open Source Designs

- "Nickwoo2 Design

- "Paul's Garage" Design

Minimum Viable Product

- Easy to Produce

- Inexpensive

- High Temperature

- More consistent/controllable air flow due to forced air

- Can run at a higher temp/use more fuel due to the pure oxygen removing the limitation of air flow

Basic Design

- Same as the Open Source Gas-Pressurized Air Burner Torch, but it uses pure oxygen instead of pressurized air
