Thread: How much can I melt?

  1. Default How much can I melt?

    I'd like to build a torch capable of melting at least 150g of copper at once in a small graphite crucible. How many LPM will be neccessary to achieve this?

    Also, how much can I melt with 2 LPM?

    Any tips you can give me regarding how to melt larger amounts at once would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Default

    Hey jhongalt,

    How exactly do you plan on melting the copper inside the crucible? Are you trying to liquify it for pouring into a casting? I'm working on a similar project and have been looking into DIY Forges that use propane for heating purposes, but plan to use a Oxyhydrogen generator instead. Currently I'm building two 49 plate generators based similar to http://www.greenfuelh2o.com 's design where water/Oxyhydrogen are fed/removed from both sides of the cell. What does your current Oxyhydrogen build/design look like at the moment? Have you already calculated that it will/does put out 2LPM?

    Reguards,

    Ben Hitz.
