The Blazer GB4105 touch-activated, butane gas burner is a tabletop, refillable burner that creates a precise flame emitting from a nozzle head, allowing direct heat application to an object. It is commonly used for detailed purposes such as brazing, plumbing, soldering, heating, jewelry making, culinary, dental and lab applications, and work that requires a traditional Bunsen burner.
This tabletop burner has a touch-activated pad for ease of use. Rest your hand on the touch-sensitive pad to ignite the burner, and remove your hand to extinguish the flame and turn the unit off. It features a flame adjustment dial, for precise control of flame length, width, and heat, within its Fahrenheit range. It can be set from a yellow, soft, cooler flame (1,472 degrees F) to a more precise, hot, blue flame (2,370 degrees F). It has a dual-use locking mechanism that either locks the flame on for continuous use, or off for safety.
The burner houses a piezoelectric ignition system, which is based on a pressurized molecular reaction, and requires no electric connection. Piezoelectric energy occurs when the trigger is activated, releasing a small, spring-loaded internal hammer that strikes a crystal, producing a spark and resulting in gas flame ignition.
With a maximum flame temperature of 2,370 degrees F (1,300 degrees C), the burner has a continuous burn time of approximately 65 minutes (varies with flame temperature), and has a 10-gram gas capacity. It measures 5.6 (l) x 2.6 (w) x 5.5 (h) inches and weighs 11.2 ounces. This product is intended strictly for use in professional and industrial environments. In accordance with federal regulations, home use of this product is prohibited.
