I Forge Iron

Opposing Burner directions


Recommended Posts

Every forge with multiple burners has them directed in the same direction.  I assume there is a reason.  But me being me, I was wondering why you could not have the burners firing in opposing directions.One aiming from the left, and the other aiming from the right, not aimed at the same point though.

That is what I meant Michael. 

New Ax, You get opposing swirls.  Since the flows are not aimed at each I don't really see how they would fight, but that is why I am asking.

Opposing burners as described are common enough in commercial furnaces. Experiment in a brick pile forge till you get a configuration you like. Just don't aim them so they're firing INTO the opposing flame.
