SOURCE: torch is used for jewelry work and is a acetylene

Usually, the blow-out problem is caused by excessive fuel flow at first--too much pressure or valve is opened too far. Once you have a bushy acetylene flame, turn up the air source to bring the flame down to a fuzzy point near the tip end. Brazing and silver soldering work better with just a little less air. My experience is with an oxy-acetylene torch, but results are similar.

SOURCE: Hi there, despite brand new

Hi:
If your flame goes out check the following:a) check your acetylene and oxygen pressure, for this kind of job acetylene should be at 4 psi and oxygen at 10.b) Check you're using the right type of nozzle for the job and this nozzle is clean.

with the solder tip attached push upward on the little black knob on the tip, its spring loaded and on one side reveals a small little chamber where you can see a small flame once you turn the gas on and apply a spark/match to the little opening. keep the knob still pushed up all this time. let the fire inside keep going, if you let the knob down and the window to the chamber closes before it gets hot enough the iron wont work but if you wait for a bit with the fire inside, then right below the tip you'll start to see that area glow red, once its glowing red your good to go, you can close the chamber and the catalyst will "burn" the gas in the area and make heat instead of the fire heating the tip. once you close the chamber you're holding open with your thunmb then the fire goes out, if its hot enough you're set to go, otherwise rinse repeat.

I'm unable to get blue flame on orca torch, it makes a crackling noise when I light it and has yellowish gunk in the tip, Can you help?


Is this torch powered by acetylen and if so then the yellow gunk you are seeing is unstable acetyleen which is caused by a torch that is releasing the gas faster then it can be handled in normal atmospher whic would be why you can not get a blue flame, I would say that the tip is to large for the tanks you have the system attached to. I would ask your dealer to suggest the tip size that the torch set you are using would be compatiable with the tank size you have attached. I would not try to use the set until I get it sorted out as unstable acetyleen is very explosive. Hope This Helps Don

Lots of yellow - then very low heat


Are the flames still yellow? If so the burner just needs to be adjusted which is very easy? Look at the ends of the tubes that come out of the burner and end right at the back of the gas controls. You should see a small piece of metal that will slide or spin to close a hole. You want to close or open it a little at a time while the grill is burning. Adjust this until you only see blue flame or blue flames with a little bit of a yellow tip.
