Use high pressure natural gas for Glass Lampworking

Safe for your home studio - boost utility gas pressure to       5 psi for superior torch performance

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 will work better when you set gas pressure at 5 psi.

Think about it...when you work with propane you set your regulator at about 5 psi, not ¼ psi! While your torch will light and work with standard city gas pressure you will find that it is like the difference between cutting with a sharp knife compared to a dull knife. One G-TEC user told us:

I had been on natural gas without a booster—pretty pitiful. But now I really feel that I have all the flame I want!

Get the best performance your torch has to offer by using high-pressure natural gas!

For equal BTUs natural gas costs 75 % less than propane!

But what most G-TEC owners like best is being connected right to the utility natural gas pipe because they never run out of fuel. No more quick trips to the gas supplier when you run out.

And, natural gas is much cleaner than propane - no carbon buildup on your torch. No flecks of carbon in the glass and you don’t have to spend time cleaning the torch.
