When choosing your gas fired forge, we recommend that you carefully study the shape and size of firebox on the following forges. Hopefully, there is one designed to suit your particular application, whether it’s horseshoeing, architectural design, artist blacksmithing, knife and sword making, glass bead making, furniture fabrication or melting ferrous metals.
The larger units are designed for either large or small volume use due to its flexibility. One or more rows of burners can be shut down when smaller parts are being heated at considerable fuel savings. The larger units are also equipped with a safety valve for user protection. If fuel is accidentally turned on, the safety valve will shut the fuel off if no heat is detected. Thus, preventing any dumping of fuel into the work area. The smaller units will heat many parts in a short time and will heat any object the firbox opening will receive.
Fuel consumption is determined by the pressure setting on the regulator. For example,fuel pressure set at 8 psi will consume approximately 1 1/2 lbs of fuel per hour, per burner. Once the unit heats up, less line pressure is required for most applications, resulting in less fuel being used and a considerable savings to the user. The user will quickly learn the appropriate pressure needed for each application
