What is a blowtorch?
A blowtorch is a fuel-burning tool used for applying flame and heat to various applications, usually metalworking.
Early blowtorches used liquid fuel, carried in a refillable reservoir attached to the lamp. Modern blowtorches are mostly gas-fueled. Their fuel reservoir is disposable or refillable by exchange. Liquid-fueled torches are pressurized by a piston hand pump, while gas torches are self-pressurized by the fuel evaporation.
Fuel torches are available in a vast range of size and output power. The term “blowtorch” applies to the smaller and lower temperature range of these. Blowtorches are typically a single hand-held unit, with their draft supplied by a natural draft of air. The larger torches may have a heavy fuel reservoir placed on the ground, connected by a hose.
Many torches now use a hose-supplied gas feed. They may also have a forced-air supply, from either an air blower or an oxygen cylinder.
The blowtorch is commonly used where a diffused high temperature naked flame heat is required but not so hot as to cause combustion or welding. Temperature applications: soldering, brazing, softening paint for removal, melting roof tar, or pre-heating large castings before welding such as for repairing.
Blowtorches are also commonly used in weed control by controlled burn methods and to melt snow and ice from pavements and driveways in cold climate areas. This is especially true in the United States and Canada where road repair crews may use a blowtorch to heat asphalt for repairing cracks in preventive maintenance. They are also used in cooking; one common use is for the creation of the layer of hard caramelized sugar in a crème brûlée.
From plumbing repairs to crème brûlée and everything in between, BernzOmatic torches do it all. To inspire your next fuel torch idea, we’re sharing some of BernzOmatic’s “How To” tips and tricks!
