FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
PERI TORCHES HAVE MANY USES
With a Peri gas torch in your hand, you have a very precise form of instant heat that has an amazing number of uses. The concentrated spot heat created by the burning of gas under pressure means that you can create very high temperatures in very small spaces, so much so that even metals can be melted in tight spots.
Propane and Super-MAP torches are the most effective at creating high burning temperatures so brazing and light welding are no problem for these torches. Butane torches, on the other hand, burn at a lower temperature so these are good for soldering and great for use in the kitchen. Chefs in commercial kitchens are never without a Butane torch.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you are brazing or welding, you will get a hotter flame with the gas fully open. However, when using butane products in the kitchen, it is often better to have a smaller flame, especially if you are using a larger torch, to avoid burning food and giving a finer control over using the torch.
This can happen if the gas is igniting inside the burner tube, instead of outside the tube in the open air. This will cause the burner tube to glow red hot and will damage the torch if it continues. This situation can occur if insufficient gas is coming out of the burner tube when it is ignited. In such cases, turn off the torch and allow to cool. Then turn the gas full on and ignite as per the instructions.

Yes you can. A 9kg gas bottle will power your torch for much longer and at a cheaper cost but it will not burn quite as hot as Propane or Super-MAP gas. You will need a special adaptor to connect the bottle and torch. These are available online (click here).
