    Make a jet using MIG welder gun tips. That way you can vary the jets easly and cheaply.

    Ive mean reading heaps about venturi burners on blacksmith forums and they also recommend MIG tips. These burners look unbelievable common.


    UPDATE

    I did a boil test today and it took about 15 min to boil 10L of room temp water with the burner running at about 70%.

    some people on one of those "unmentionable brewing" sites have made there own burners much like yours Jye

    I think they are pretty much like weed burners but a little supercharged :)

    MIG tips are the go for jets....many size's,easy to replace

    Basically drill a 1/4 hole on your delivery pipe, weld a nut with the same thread as a MIG tip......

    Being the wet drag... i do hope anybody doing this sort of project is aware of the dangers, and well trained in the needed design aspects to ensure a safe outcome.

    The previous version of this high pressure reg from Auscrown.

    This is the sort of info Im trying to find. Im now using a Gasfuse but would like to know if there are any safety design aspects.
