High pressure natural gas is hot enough to cast platinum
High pressure natural gas is hot enough to melt and cast platinum! Platinum melts
at 3,300F and by boosting natural gas pressure to 10-
Natural gas burns at more than 5,000F but you need plenty of gas volume to put the maximum heat on the metal. Higher pressure means more gas flow and better heat transfer to platinum and all karats of gold.
Platinum casters report better results when heating with natural gas; there is less stress on the metal, less porosity and an overall better quality cast.

Make your studio safer by getting rid of propane and acetylene cylinders
Your workplace is safer with high pressure natural gas. When you bring a cylinder
of fuel gas into your studio you introduce a lot of stored energy that could be very
dangerous. One BTU is the equivalent of lighting one wooden kitchen match so if you
use a 1-
Use flashback arrestors for torch safety
High pressure natural gas makes OSHA-
The problem is that flashback arrestor check valves need at least ¾ psi gas pressure to work properly, otherwise they block gas flow.
With high pressure natural gas from a G-
When a jeweler’s torch has a flashback a 5,000F flame travels through the hose and gas pipe to the gas meter, which explodes.
The explosion can send pieces of the meter flying in all directions, injuring anyone standing nearby and
starting a fire.
Superior Torch Performance -
Get top performance from your torch
If you are using natural gas right from the utility natural gas pipe your torch is not getting all the gas pressure it needs for top performance.
Utility natural gas pressure is only ¼ psi in most places but your torch is designed
to work best at pressures between 3-
You may also experience a flickering or unsteady flame, especially in winter, as
heaters and other gas appliances in your building turn on and off. High pressure

Natural gas is half the cost of propane for equal heat
For equal BTUs high pressure natural gas is half the cost of acetylene or propane. Plus you don’t have pay an expensive monthly cylinder rental cost or waste time ordering, storing and changing empty fuel gas cylinders. Never lose productive time by running out of gas or paying extra for an emergency delivery.
Natural gas is much cleaner than acetylene and propane because it has very little
carbon in the flame. This means no soot as when you light an acetylene torch and
no carbon buildup on the torch tip. Natural gas is also greener than acetylene and
