Hand-held torches are essential for a variety of construction and remodelling applications, from soldering to pipe joinery. But these torches require fuel, and knowing how to refill them can mean the difference between finishing a job and stalling in the middle of a project. BernzOmatic makes a variety of different torches which utilise a specific refill system. Understanding how to use this system is key for safe, uninterrupted use of BernzOmatic torches.
Check your type of fuel cylinder. BernzOmatic hand-held torches use four different types of fuel which are colour-coded: blue (propane), red (oxygen), yellow (max power propylene) and green (butane).
Remove the existing fuel cylinder from the base of the BernzOmatic torch by turning it 1/4 turn counter-clockwise.
Dispose of the fuel cylinder according to your local fuel disposal safety regulations.
Unscrew the cap from the new fuel cylinder.
Press the opening of the new fuel cylinder into the nozzle at the base of the BernzOmatic torch.
Secure the new fuel cylinder in place by turning it 1/4 turn clockwise.
- Use eye protection and heat-resistant gloves when using hand-held torches.
