Mankel

Some points about Mankel Gas Forges to consider.

  1. The liner in the round-bottomed Knifemaker model will hold up to repeated use of flux and forge-welding heat, without requiring replacement.
  2. Liners in the other Mankel models hold up to regular use better than those of most of the other gas forges available.
  3. Adjustable air and gas flow allow for better burn and temperature control in various atmospheric conditions.
  4. Adjustable top height, using additional firebrick and longer threaded rods on all models allows for working larger stock.
  5. All 4 models of Mankel gas forge can be ordered for use with either propane or natural gas, and can be switched from one to the other at any time, with minimal equipment change.
  6. Any model of Mankel gas forge can be ordered with either an electric blower or with a 12-volt DC blower, for use where electricity is not available.
  7. The 2-burner models weigh 90-110 pounds, making them very portable. The 3-burner models weigh 130-170 pounds.
  8. We have spoken with multiple customers who have been using a Mankel gas forge for 35 years or more, without need of repair and are just now calling for replacement liners or other parts.

Fisher High Pressure Regulator, 3 - 35 psi

Fisher
Weight: lbs
This is a basic regulator with a hand-wheel adjustment. Its capacity is 750,000 BTU/HR  for propane based on inlet pressure 20 Psig (1.4 bar) greater than outlet with 20% drop; Liquid capacity = 3.5 GPH. The Outlet Pressure Setting in Psig (bar) is 20 (1,4).  The Outlet Adjustment Range in Psig (bar) is 3 - 35 (0.21 - 2.4). The outlet pressure is permanently calibrated on the spring case allowing visual adjustment of the outlet pressure without having to use a pressure gauge. The unit is ideal for service where gauge breakage is a problem.

The 67C Series regulators are suitable for liquid or vapor service, the 67C Series high pressure (pounds to pounds) regulators are used on a variety of applications. All types within the Series have a 1/4" FNPT side outlet in which a pressure gauge (J500 Series) can be installed. The compact size of the 67C makes it particularly useful on installations where space is limited.

The regulator design utilizes precise guiding of the valve plug to provide close regulation and high performance.

Note: 67C Series regulators do not have an internal relief valve. These units should not be installed in fixed piping serving 1/2 psig (0.03 bar) appliance systems.
