- Push the ignition lever forward and the gas will be ignited electronically with a snapping sound.
- For shut-off, turn the gas flow control knob to the right (Clock Wise) and close it securely.
Thermal Power and Flame Control of your Blue Flame GB2001 Micro Torch
- Adjust the thermal power level and the length of the flame to suit usage objectives.
- The highest temperature attainable will be about 1,300 degrees Celsius.
- Both the gas control knob and the air control knob can be used to regulate the flame.
- After ignition, turn the air control knob either to the right or left for necessary thermal power adjustments. Closing the air inlet will produce a low temperature yellow flame, while fully opened the micro torch produces a sharp, high temperature blue flame.
- After ignition, do not leave the GB2001 Micro Torch burning longer than 1 hour continuously.
