In Topic: Making Burners Do's And Don't's

Yes it is only a small one, I will go with 2 burners then. Save me some work if 2 will be plenty. I will have to look into making some refractory burners. I do have an old friend who is into blacksmithing who I am going to talk to. Could be fun trying to forge my own burner.

 

By refractory clay do you mean some kind of fire clay? To my knowledge that is the most refractory sort of clay, right?

Ok, so it is probably worth my money to find some good cast venturi burners. I do like the idea of making my own, it would be satisfying to see fire burning from a homemade one.

 

I am thinking something like that second picture is good with the four burners. I am never really going to be firing bisque in this kiln so if it was a little hard to control temps at the start it shouldn't be much of a problem.

 

I keep looking at regulators and getting lost. All the low pressure LP seem to be fixed and the high pressure goes from 0.5bar to 2/4bar which seems useless  :wacko:

i always wonder how they even begin to melt silica or alumina when surely the kiln would melt!

PRankin, definitely finger wiped but the color may be due to the thin layer of glaze left behind in the wiped places. Not necessarily an underglaze but not ruling it out either.

 

That was my trail of thought too.

Is is this you are talking about? I have never tried it so can't really help much.
