Gas Forge Burner Information

  •  Q: ARE YOUR FORGES MADE IN AMERICA?
    • A: YES! WE MANUFACTURE OUR FORGES IN OUR SHOP NEAR     SUGAR GROVE OHIO, AND WE STRIVE TO USE U.S. MADE COMPONENTS /MATERIALS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
  • Q: CAN I SAFELY TURN OFF SOME BURNERS?
    • A: YES! OUR FITTINGS AND VALVES ARE RATED FOR HIGH HEAT AND WILL NOT BE DAMAGED AND WE PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS TO PREVENT “CHIMNEY EFFECT”. ALSO IT IS EASY TO BLOCK OFF PART OFF THE FORGE TO REDUCE THE FIREBOX SIZE BY SIMPLE PLACING A FIREBRICK INSIDE.
  • Q: SHOULD I COAT THE INSULATION WITH RIGIDIZER?
    • A: NO, OUR CERAMIC LINERS ARE RIGIDIZED AT THE FACTORY GIVING THEM A HARDENED SHELL. SOME RIGIDIZERS CAN REACT WITH THIS AND DAMAGE THE LINER.
  • Q: CAN I USE FLUX IN THESE FORGES?
    • A: YES, FLUX IS CORROSIVE TO ANY LINER, HOWEVER WE INCLUDE INSTRUCTIONS TO HELP YOU PROTECT YOUR FORGE SO YOU CAN USE FLUX WITHOUT HARMING THE FORGE LINER.
  • Q: WHAT L.P./PROPANE TANK SHOULD I USE?
    • A: THE LARGER THE FORGE THE LARGER THE TANK. 1&2 BURNER USUALLY WORK FINE WITH A 20 POUND TANK. 3 BURNER FORGES WILL WORK WITH A 20 POUND TANK BUT THE TANK MAY “FREEZE UP” BELOW 1/2 TANK OF GAS. SO WE USUALLY SUGGEST USING A 60 POUND TANK. 3 & 5 BURNER FORGES USE A HIGHER VOLUME OF GAS SO WE RECOMMEND A 60 POUND OR LARGER TANK.
