Introduction: Jet Propane Torch for Metal Melting Foundry

Picture of Jet Propane Torch for Metal Melting Foundry

The particular burner will indicate the temperature that currently exists inside the oven the one that we are going to make in order to be able to melt aluminum and other minerals. Our burner combines the air and the propane to create their proper combination aiming to achieve the perfect combustion.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

To make this burner, we used compounds and metallic pieces of tubes that we use for plumbing. Also, we made two entrances, from which the air is inserted to the one and the propane is inserted to the other while both are met and end up in a tube where if they get flamed they will get burnt. Regulating the air and the propane, we get the ‘perfect’ combustion. At the entrance, where the air is inserted, we used a regulator that controls the flow of the air that we want to provide. While the flow of the propane is controlled by a valve that we placed.

Step 2: Air and Propane

Additionally, we placed a watch on the flask of propane to get the ideal flow of propane by it. Therefore, lighting up the burner from the front and regulating the mixture of air and propane, we get a very powerful and impressive flame, which can warm the oven that we are making, giving us the best possible outcome!

Wow... you may want to rethink this design. Combustion is occurring inside of the burner, and will most likely melt down in time. Like russ suggests put a cone on the end of that to move combustion outside the burner. Very nice workmanship none the less.

I THINK ANYTHING OF THIS NATURE NEEDS CERTIFICATION! LOOK AT THE PHOTO... THE INNER NEAR WHITE IS PRE IGNITION OF THE PROPANE... AT SOME POINT... DISSASTER!!! IT WILL MELT THROUGH! WHO IS DESIGNING THIS,,, I THINK WE SHOULD SEE CERTIFICATION <OR> THOUGHTS FROM DESIGN ENGINEERS!!! > SAFTEY SHOULD ALWAYS BE FIRST...<

Just My opinion...

OMG CAPS LOCK!!!!

Your method of building this is great

Just
blindly forging ahead oblivious of comment. This is how people kill
themselves so why not modify it a little .Shorten it by three inches or
so and narrow the nozzle if needed but the most heat efficient point ,
like oxy, is at the tip of the burning fuel so just tune it a little
maybe .Look at the colours on your burner . It is getting colder as it comes further out the tube so shorten it to yust after the first red bit.

I like your innovation and will try to build one of these for my
furnace also. At present I use heat beads and a forced air flow

That is just awesome! I like it.

It looks like you have ignition inside the burner. This is usually not desirable as it heats the burner rather than the furnace. Higher fuel/air velocity and a flare may get the flame to ignite at the end of the burner. Take a look on the internet for some other plans to see how it generally managed.
