    Default Babington burner for forge and foundry

    Hy guys, it is my first post on forum and I need your help with some advice for to improve my wasted oil burner temperature, My babington burner can melt cooper wire in few seconds and a cooper pot for casting in 5 minutes but the temperature obtained inside the forge is not sufficient for damascus steel making. How to improve my burner to increase the temperature at 2372 F (1300*Celsius) to obtain almost white color steel for forge welding.
    My burner use wasted oil from kitchen, car and hydraulic oil, burn 2,5 liters /hour , air pressure from compressor is 2,5 atm and I attach a short movie and a picture with it

    Otonel,

    It sounds like you may require a LPG burner fitted to your furnace to achieve the extra temperature.
    I don't forge so I can't talk on the basis of experience.

    A knife orientated site suggests that temperature need to be somewhere around 2000 - 2300 F - https://blademag.com/knifemaking/how-to-forge-damascus

    A blacksmith site recommends slightly different temperature of 1500- 2000F. https://blacksmithcode.com/how-to-forge-damascus-steel/

    We have a knife sub forum here so it is worth checking out.find it by going to FORUM top LH side click FORUM HOME and scroll down till you see Knife forums.
