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 adapters with filter screens to adapt to standard 1/4" ID grade "T" hose on each stud. The adapters 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.
