I Forge Iron

Burner types for a forge

Looks like it needs an insulated lid. Are there burner ports in the forge body already? If not then the burners can go in the lid.

What are the dimensions of the cavity? A 3/4 inch atmospheric burner can heat up to about 350 cubic inches, and functions properly down to about half that space. There are a number of plans for burners from pipe here on IFI that are well described, or you can purchase one.

Note with the hard fire brick liner I would double the burner requirements---what are you planning to do with it? That's more of an industrial set up to do lots of major forging all day long. *NOT* a good set up for a hobby forge---it will cost you so much in propane that you could *give* it away and build another forge and still come out ahead!
