The "BCS Burner"© #6950 is a 3/4 inch propane fired furnace / forge type burner. It will
heat up small to medium furnaces to melting temperatures in a matter of minutes.
The estimated output is about 45,000 BTU.
It's appropriate for crucible furnaces with up to a 24" inner diameter. The exact time it
takes to reach melting temperatures depends on how well the furnace is insulated.
Our 12" inner diameter test furnace with 2-1/2" refractory walls will go from cold to melting
aluminum in a #8 crucible in 18 minutes. It will melt brass in about 32 minutes.
For forges this burner style has been used in the "Propane Cylinder" forge with good results.
This forge is based on a 5 Gallon propane tank that has the ends cut off and is
lined with Ceramic Blanket.
This burner is a high quality unit. Superior features include a Stainless Steel
Nozzel, High quality pressure regulator, Flexible gas hose, and easily read
pressure meter. The burner is factory tuned and ready to operate.
Just connect it to your BBQ type propane tank and you are ready to go.
Because there are variations in the construction of furnaces and forges,
mounting of the burner is left to the user. Note that this burner has no
safety features that come with more expensive units, so it should be monitored
during operation to prevent flame out and other dangerous situations. Since BCS
has no control over the installation and use of the burner the user assumes all
risk and liability for its suitability and safe operation.
