The Cheetah is a 13 jet Triple Mix Surface Mix Torch. The Triple Mix technology
produces the most efficient flame available for today's glassblower. By surrounding
the fuel with oxygen and then injecting oxygen directly down the fuel stream, the
fuel is completely burned for a hotter cleaner flame. The oxygen streams are independently
controllable by the green and blue valves. This provides a wider flame range and
chemistry that is easily adjustable by the operator without changing tips or torches.
The Cheetah works soft and borosilicate glass with finesse and ease. The flame is
hot and penetrating for borosilicate work up to 3" solid, and soft and clean to work
the most delicate soft glass colors. The Cheetah flame will get as small as the
diameter of a pencil up to a 3/4" wide 20" long flame. The flame is excellent for
inside out work and production borosilicate pieces. The Cheetah is easily adjustable
from a fuel rich reduction flame, to a clean neutral flame, to an oxygen rich oxidized
flame, to an over-oxidized flame that is necessary for special glass effects.
The Cheetah comes with 1' of 3/16" hose and adaptors with filter screens to adapt
to standard 1/4" ID grade "T" hose on each stud. The adaptors have a barb that the
1/4" ID grade "T" hose slides over and is clamped securely. The Cheetah comes on
a powder coated base that has holes for mounting the base to the work table. Also
included are complete instructions and a cleaning kit. Accessories for the Cheetah
include a torch mounted marver with an "L" marver option, and hose assemblies. The
"L" marver piece is also available separately to upgrade an existing GTT marver.
