This compact micro torch is ideally suited for melting the ends of sample tubes precisely and safely. As a very small flame can be adjusted, it is possible to melt the capillary precisely at a defined point without excessively heating the remaining capillary, as is the case with standard torches. The torch is operated with a hydrogen/oxygen or a propane/oxygen mixture, both of which provide a very hot flame that even permits quartz glass to be processed. This torch is an extremely versatile tool with which practically all types of glass can be processed – from simple flaming to highly complex tasks.
The torch consists of a gas mixing chamber and two gas inlets, which are also suitable for aggressive media such as hydrogen and oxygen. Two needle valves at the front of the mixing chamber are used to regulate the gas flows separately and precisely. The torch comes complete with an angled nozzle that has an internal diameter of 0,3 mm.
On request, we can supply a table holder that greatly simplifies your work. By clamping the torch in the holder, both hands are kept free to hold the test tube during melting. Moreover, the torch flame is kept absolutely steady.
For highly specific work, we can also supply a special stainless steel nozzle fitted with a ruby insert in the tip that has an orifice of only 0,18 mm. This nozzle permits extremely fine and hot flames to be used.
In order to generate more heat simultaneously, we can provide a distributor that permits the use of two nozzles at the end of the torch.
