Carlisle CC++ Torch
The Carlisle CC++ Burner is the largest burner in the CC family of bench burners. It has two added rows of tubes on the outer fire, compared to the CC Burner,resulting in a larger flame than even the CC +. This burner may be used with a mixture of oxygen and either natural gas, propane, or hydrogen (different tips are suggested depending on the gas used). This Burner also comes standard with the Air Optimizer.
This burner produces two distinctive flames, the centerfire (pre-mixed) and the outer fire (surface mixed). The centerfire, which has characteristics of a single ported tip, produces a flame similar to what may be achieved with a Carlisle hand torch.
There are three types of centerfire tips available. The #5 tip has the largest orifice of the piloted centerfire tips, this produces more BTU's than the smaller #3 tip. The #3 centerfire tip produces a smaller, more defined flame. The last type is the hydrogen tip which is for use with hydrogen gas only, it is unpiloted, and has the same orifice size as the #5 tip.
The outer shell of the CC++ is manufactured from brass (SS optional). The brass shell is threaded onto a machined brass body. For fuel gas supply, four metering valves are attached to the back of the mixer body. These valves are color coded for ease of use. The oxygen valves have green handles while the gas valves have red handles. On a standard CC++ these valves are interconnected by crossover attachments to limit the feed hose requirements to two. The CC++ is also available with four separate inlets to allow for the use of foot controllers. The standard hose connections on the CC++ are welding hose "B fittings". Other connection types are available such as hose barbs and JIC connections.
There are several styles of bases available for the CC++. The standard style is a Ball and Post mount. The Ball and Post base utilizes a crescent shaped solid steel base with a ball and socket connection. The post that extends upward is threaded directly into the bottom of the CC+ body. This style offers a selective articulation. In order to adjust the angle of the head, the user releases a thumb screw at the base of the post. When re-tightened, this provides positive burner positioning. The Rack and Pinion style mount utilizes a pinion gear to pivot the burner in an arc, offering greater range of positioning than the Ball and Post mount. The user can adjust a knob on the side of the mounting device for quick, accurate positioning. Custom lathe mounts are also available as an option.
The Heat Shield is standard with any CC++ series burner. Manufactured from perforated stainless steel, the Heat Shield protects the user from the heat of the burner body. Some applications with high radiant heat transfer, will find our water cooling option desirable.
