    Default New Torch design uses only water and electricity

    This new torch designed in Europe uses electricity to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen... then it recombines them at the torch nozzle...
    The torch is controlled by how much electricity its using at the moment to do the electrolyses.

    They finally got a browns gas torch going. The torch may be new but the tech is older than a lot may think 100 year

    Nice to see them working on a version of the old Brown's gas tech designed for mass market use, should bring the price down on components like the gas generation parts. I checked this out when I was first building a torch, but none of the common home build designs for an oxyhydrogen generator seem to separate the two generated gasses.

    I've never worked with an oxy/hydrogen torch, I understand it's capable of a much hotter flame, has anyone here used one with glass?

    I've heard people say that it's too hot. I think this guy's working soft glass, though, so. . .

    Too hot ? Are u slow? Work higher in the flame then, Jesus Christ! I like the idea of burning water. Sounds mystical even tho I understand it completely.

    You are the one that is slow. A flame can definitely be too hot for boro. And you mean farther out in the flame, not higher in the flame.

    no one has really said whether this thing is gonna work good for boro. I am curious, pardon if its a dumbass question. But are those hydrogen torches to hot for boro? I know they are for quartz. Just curious. I was watching videos on these torches last night, i think my shares of the videos may bave lead to this thread

    Yes. You need a lot less flame and heat. Honestly he's working that hotter than most people work soft glass. It's getting really hot and drippy.

    That doesn't look like soft glass to me. I'm guessing it's boro worked really hot and looking a little like 104.

    Nice technique.
    On that vid hes definately not working with soft glass.
    But the question is if its possible to run a burner with a BIG flame ?
