DIY Static mixer

Matrix: Nobody's attacked you, we attempted to answer your questions only to have you claim some sort of professional authority and argue. What do CANADIAN codes and standard terms mean in the USA? Have you lost sight of that or don't you care? This thread  has turned into semantic quibbling which is typically the end of useful information exchange.

I'm done playing your games.

I have never heard of the term BIP before now.

Same here, so I googled it. Good grief it can have many meanings. That's why I hate acronyms.

Which is useless unless you have a certified welder.

I don't understand this comment.

It is my understanding that any connection over 2" has to be welded.

No Siree, my sweet bippy is much too valuable to be bet on such a thing!  ;-)

step 1.
Grab some tools and materials.

step 2ish..cut, fold, cut, connect, Flux and solder. Alternate as you go.

Step 3:... wish you had a torch for better solders... I used a soldering iron. Still works, but torch would get it hotter.thumbnail_20190416_082945.thumb.jpg.63a03359ed19bc775dfcde95b35b0ba4.jpg

Save yourself $300.

If you have the time and inclination, I would be interested in the combination of performance/fuel efficiency with and without your device in place.  If you end up with a hotter forge with less fuel burned it may be worth the effort.  If the difference is negligible or non-existent then it's probably not worth the time and effort to create such a device.

Fitters install many 12 inch water pipes with clamping type connectors (no clue of proper name) I use couplings for all sizes of my pipe

True.
Though it took me about 20 mins.

Cool.

I have connected pipe that I could sit and have my lunch in.

as for making these, what about cutting some steel part way through and then twisting? with a blown burner would it matter if these static mixers are super accurate? 

No; as an internal part in a sealed system that wouldn't matter at all. Low pressure oxy/natural torches used by the railroad used  internal twisted ribbons to enusre sufficient mixing. Some very short body torches still do.

thematrixiam is on to a good idea for ribbon burner systems; it should not be dismissed.
