  • That loud bang is just either the gas or exygen choking off first I believe. Wouldn't you be able to tweak the pressures on them a tad, or get a snappier set of check valves to close off faster. Maybe have one side close off faster than the other

  • That pop from your torch is because the acetylene is being turned off before the oxygen. Rule of thumb is to turn off oxy before acetylene.

  • does the thing turn off one line before the other, or does it turn off both lines at the same time? if it turns off one line before the other you want to arrange it so that it turns the oxygen line off first so it doesn't bang

  • My son, Wyatt, is 8 years old and is obsessed with Blacksmithing! He's been into tools, in general, since he was 3 years old. His dad and I both have been with Home Depot for 20+ years. He watches you every day before school, as his 'educational' selection. We truly back him in this interest and see a future. He has quite the set up in the garage...anvil, tool box, tongs, hammers, etc. He's wanting hot cuts now. Just know that your show is very kid appropriate while at the same time appealing to all ages! Thank you for being someone we can trust to teach, have fun and make things that appeal to even the youngest of Blacksmiths! :)

  • it bangs because the oxygen needs to be turned off slightly b4 the fuel. does it adjust? what if you change the order of the hoses? alternatively run the fuel to the torch at a higher feed pressure then the O2. that way when you shut it off, the O2 in the hoses between your fancy shutoff valve and the control valves on the torch will run out before the fuel.

  • about the noise i think i remember from pneumatics that there is some sort "backdraft reducer" correct me if i'm wrong but the bang comes from one gas burning faster as the other with a reducer, that would solve the problem

    Dominik KempenDominik Kempen2 måneder siden
  • In my experience, the "pop!" is from the gas flame dying while the oxygen is still draining. I always cut my O2 first, but I suppose that would defeat the purpose of the fancy machine. :p

    RodogastRodogast2 måneder siden
  • The reason fro the bang when you shut off de flame, is that your oxygen pressure falls to fast. It lies in the operating principle of the torch. It's an injector torch and that means, that the oxygen that has a higher pressuere than the propane or acetylene sucks the burning gas into the mixingpipe. But when you turn off the oxygen and burning gas, the oxygenpressure falls to fast and then the flame can burn back into the mixing pipe and with the right oxygen/burning gas mixing ratio in there, it exlplodes. At our factory we always turn the oxygen a little bit up before killing the torch. Im sorry for my bad english skills. But im just a sheet metal worker from Switzerland.

  • On the gas saver you can adjust the gas and air so you don’t get the loud pop sound. Either adjust the gas slightly down or air slightly up so the air shuts off after the gas. The adjustments are in the device.

    rustjupiterrustjupiter2 måneder siden
  • That pop that you hear is a too rich oxygen and propane mixture. It explodes instead of fizzling out. This is dangerous, because the explosion could travel up the hoses (known as flashback), and without the proper safety valves this could really damage your equipment, or worse. Before shutting of your torch decrease the oxygen flow a bit, and when reigniting it adjust back to the flow you prefer.
