These venturi style propane fired burners are naturally aspirated. The parts are formed using precision machined tool steel dies and assembled by a skilled certified TIG welder in precision alignment fixtures. Parts such as the 1/8 inch NPT nipple and the brass fuel orifice are machined on a precision turret lathe to ensure the highest quality in manufacturing. Important things to observe are the finely tuned design of the stainless steel nozzle and the long life it will provide. Unlike some burners that are designed for similar applications which can only maintain ignition inside the chamber they were intended for (typically the refractory material of the device has a type of nozzle built in to it which wears out over time) these JF #1 burners maintain ignition as a standalone product. The nozzle will never reach critical melting temperatures, as most homemade burners will. This means you can weld or assemble these burners by any type of fixture you require, and be assured of a very long burner life. The burners come adjusted to burn neutrally in a wide variety of forge, foundry, and kiln constructions, and can be choked to provide a perfect carburizing atmosphere for processes such as forge welding.

Why purchase a JF #1 burner?

If you are building your own forge, foundry, glass kiln, burn out kiln, or raku kiln often one of the most challenging, expensive and unforeseeable time consuming parts of the process is in obtaining or building a proper burner. These burners have thousands of hours of testing and use behind them. They perform excellently in multiple forge designs for blacksmithing. They are used to fire foundries for melting aluminum and brass. They are being used to fire a wide variety of kilns and they have been adapted to a growing list of things that surprise me and sometimes scare me. I’m no tree huger but if you email me with questions about constructing a “battery melter for getting at the lead” I will not sell them to you. Although these burners are capable of operating from 1 PSI to over 60 PSI, the common operating pressures are from 3 to 15 PSI.


Products received from Thermal Art Design may need light assembly before use. You should have basic hand tools, and a knowledge of screwing together basic fittings. NPT threads will need to be sealed with pipe dope or Teflon tape. There is no need to seal flare fittings such as the swivel fitting on the regulator hose that connects to the M3/8 flare side of the valves I often carry, because a flare fitting is self-sealing. I often ship my standard burner kits with the parts loosely assembled so the user can add in any additional plumbing they desire and do the final assembly themselves. Always remember to check plumbing parts, valves, and fittings for debris and make sure they are clean and clear before assembly. Use compressed air or wire brushes if necessary. Products are always shipped clean and ready to assemble, but you should always do a final inspection before assembly.


If you are building some type of thermal equipment, these burners will bring you the highest level of satisfaction for a fair price.
