14 Jet Lathe Burners

The 14-Jet is the largest of the three sizes of this style of lathe burner. Each head has 14 gas ports on its face. The gas exiting these ports mixes with the oxygen that enters from porting located surrounding the face. This type of mixing is known as nozzle mixing and shares many of the same attributes as the surface mixed flame. Also, the chances of flashback are significantly reduced through this type of mixture.

The versatile 14-Jet burner allows for almost any type of fuel gas. This would include natural gas, propane, mixed gases, and hydrogen. Recommended operating pressures are gas at 5 P.S.I. and oxygen at 10 - 15 P.S.I. The dual pivot motion of both the head and the arms with the bed provides for the Carlisle lathe burner to accept a wide range of glass diameters. The side-arms are available with the standard arm clips or the advanced style arm-tensioners. The arm clips use a nut and bolt to bring together the clips holding the arms. This works well for a set positioning of the arms but complicates re-adjustment of the heads. After many repeated tightening and loosening of the arm clips which have been inadvertently "heat treated" by use of the burner, their effectiveness is reduced and will need periodic replacement. The arm-tensioner uses two holding brackets which can be tightened or loosened by a single hex nut located between them. With this system it is easier to positively adjust the side arms and heads to new positions and positioning is not reduced.

The 14-Jet Lathe Burner is ideal for almost any type of glass working. It works well with both soft and hard glass, and excels in use with quartz. The burner is manufactured from heat resistant alloy steel. The burner bed, side arms, burner tips, arm clips, and arm tensioners can all be ordered separately. Since two side arms make up the assembly that holds one burner tip, the side arms are offered in pairs. Each pair is numbered for easy reordering. To determine which side arm pair is needed, simply start at the center of the lathe burner and count the pairs of arms outward. For example, a 6 head lathe burner would have pairs 1, 2, and 3 on one side and pairs 1, 2, and 3 on the other side.
