First forge, burner flame

Recommended Posts

It does tell us that bother burners have very weak and heavily reducing flames; which tend to go together.

So, no it's time to see the rest of the burner, and maybe you'll need to answer our questions about it; but only if you want satisfactory answers.

iwfabrication  don’t stop you’re testing and trials.  Are you running LP or NG? I am somewhat guessing liquid propane.  Get a regulator that can jump you up to 15 psi.  And keep everything else the same.  Then report back. Most of the time most guys here are helpful.

Been a minute! I'm located in the USA in Michigan.

But I'm back to getting the forge setup. While in the forge my flames is greenish, which would indicate lean. One burner will reach blue flame, the other burns out before reaching blue - too much air. Running at about 5 psi currently. At this setting a piece of rectangular stock 10"*1"*1/4" gets red at about 5min.

green flame is RICH not lean.  you are not getting enough oxygen.  are you using a mig tip and if so what size.  or did you drill your hole and what size?  how long is your mix tube?
