1. Connect the gas forge burner in the following order:
- Direct burner inlet is designed to supply propane from the cylinder (or central gas main). It is performed by attaching a hose to the burner (using a nipple) and to the cylinder (using a special adjustable propane reducer).
- Side burner inlet is intended for feeding compressed air from the compressor (250-400 L/min capacity) or central compressed-air main through the hose.
- Furnace burner is adjustable in its vertical position depending on the torch length (fixing with side screws).
2. Operating procedure using the gas forge:
- Install the furnace on the furnace table, adjust the height of the torch and fix it with bolts.
- Open two ejector holes on the gas burner inlet (move the rubber ring to the side).
- Ignite a piece of paper (or wooden stick) and put it in the furnace chamber with the gas and compressed air stopped.
- Open the valve with gas (0.05 to 0.1 atm).
- Supply compressed air after burner ignition.
- Adjust the torch flame (bright blue).
- Adjust the flame by adjusting the gas or compressed air flow rate after establishing a stable torch flame and torch heating (1-2 min).
- Put the ends of the workpieces (round, square bars) in the furnace chamber for 3-4 minutes until the desired temperature is reached (800-900 ?C to yellow or bright orange color).
- Close the propane and compressed air supply inlet when the gas forge operation is finished.
Warning! Follow safety rules for using of gas appliances!
