A ribbon burner is quieter, more efficient, and longer lasting than a traditional pipe style burner. There is no steel in contact with forge temperatures, which means no scaling and degrading of burner components. I have 2 of these burners in my forge, which is about 7,000 cubic inches.
The ribbon burner is 3 inches wide 12-1/4" inches long and 4-1/2" inches deep. The plenum is made of 3/16" thick 3" x 3" steel tubing. There are 32 holes through the refractory, and the inlet is 1-9/16" inside diameter 1-7/8" outside diameter
The refractory is rated to over 3,000 degrees. My burners have been in place for years and show no visible signs of wear or deterioration.
Ordering includes free shipping, and any assistance I can reasonably offer when putting your forge together and getting the burner installed. As you know, every forge is different, and yours may operate differently than mine.
If you would like to build a forge like mine - hang in there - we should have plans and a material list ready very soon.
