2 New T Burners, looking for Advice


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I finished making a new Propane Tank forge with 2 Frosty's T burners.

The video link below is the first time I've ran them and I was wondering if I could get some advice on how they look.

They were probably running for about 10 minutes when I took the video and that is at 5 psi.

The propane tank is 3" kaowool, coated in kast-o-lite 30, and then painted with ITC-100

I think you may want to back the torches out a little bit.  If I am seeing it right, it looks as though the flares are actually inside the forge, which will. over time, consume them.  It may also help alleviate serious hot spots from forming on your steel to some degree.  From the reference pictures in that design document, his torches Ts are pretty far back from the body of the forge.

Otherwise, its looks pretty sweet to me.  Nice build.

2 of Frosty's T burners may be too much in terms of space. https://www.iforgeiron.com/topic/43976-t-burner-illustrated-directions/

That thread on ifi has all the possibilities for those to be properly set and you can feel free to ask him any questions you may have regarding your build. I'm not an expert by any means.
