Pyronics High blast torches use a small amount of high pressure air to entrain incoming gas at the mixer. This produces a hard, sharp, clear blue, typical blast burner flame.
Only ten percent of the total air required is at 20 to 100 psi. This air is passed through a high pressure venturi which inspirates the gas flow and elevates its pressure.
The resultant mixture of one part air and one part gas is delivered to the main orifice at approximately 40% of the inlet air pressure.
The venturi efficiently entrains large quantities of combustion air and delivers the mixture to the burner nozzle. The high pressure air valve and primary air shutter provide for wide ranges of adjustment.
The design of high pressure injector stage prevents air feedback into the gas line. Capacities listed in the table on page 2 are for 90% primary air and may be increased where adequate secondary air is available.

Gas Capacity And Air CFM Multiplier Table
- Make high pressure air and gas connections. These may be pipe or flexible hoses.
- The connections should not be smaller than the valve sizes.
- Minimum gas pressures: Manufactured 5″ W.C.,
- Mixed 3″ W.C., Natural, Propane or Butane 1″ W.C.
- Mount the assembly using the mounting lug, if desired.
- Check air and gas lines for leaks.
- Loosen locknut on body and open primary air shutter wide.
- Open air valve full.
- Hold lighting torch alongside burner nozzle and slowly open gas cock.
- After flame is lighted, flame character is adjusted by the setting of the gas cock.
- Opening gas wider gives a softer, longer flame. Closing it slightly produces a sharper, shorter flame.
- To shut off torch, close gas valve first and then air valve.
Please include the following information for each size High Blast Torch ordered:
- Number required.
- Specify “with alloy nozzles” if desired. Standard units are shipped with cast iron nozzles.
- HBT assemblies include both air globe valve and gas cock. State if these are not required.
- Kind of gas and available pressure.
- Air pressure available.
