Butane Torch

A butane torch is a tool which creates an intensely hot flame using butane, a flammable gas.

Consumer air butane torches are often claimed to develop flame temperatures up to approximately 1,700 K (1,430 °C; 2,600 °F). This temperature is high enough to melt many common metals, such as aluminum and copper, and hot enough to vaporize many organic compounds as well.

Famous quotes containing the word torch:

    Time grows dim. Time that was so long
    grows short, time, all goggle-eyed,
    wiggling her skirts, singing her torch song,
    giving the boys a buzz and a ride,
    that Nazi Mama with her beer and sauerkraut.
    Time, old gal of mine, will soon dim out.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
