Panama Hand Held Drip Torch
The only all Stainless Steel torch on the Market!
For over 50 years Panama Pump Co. has been building quality stainless steel
Drip Torches. Our customers include the U.S. Forest Service, state forestry
commissions, timber companies, land owners, and consulting foresters.
The Panama Hand Held Drip Torch meets DOT standards to carry flammable liquids
and meets the requirements for Packing Group II liquids as listed in 49 CFR Part
Its is constructed of 22 GA. Stainless steel, which makes it light (4-3/4
pounds) but, unlike aluminum, it is extremely resistant to wear and the abuse it
receives in holders and in the back of trucks. Tank capacity is 1-3/8 gallons.
The 2-1/4 filler neck opening requires no funnel when filling and also helps
prevent spilled fuel. This opening also allows the 12 burner to be stored
inside the tank. Fuel flow is controlled by a brass regulating valve that
precisely controls the fuel flow to the burner and is not pre-determined by the
nozzle size. This is important because not all back firing operations require
the same amount of fuel flow. The regulating valve also allows the fuel flow to
be completely shut off without having to screw in plugs or by placing a hot
burner into the fuel tank. Its safer for the operator, and there is less chance
of debris in the fuel stopping up the nozzle. The torch also has a screw type
vent valve large enough to be operated with gloves on. The Panama Drip Torch is
supplied with your chose of three burner lengths all at the same cost. We have
the standard 15 burner and also offer 12 and 19 burners. The long burners are
useful for backfiring across a wide fire lane or out of the back of a vehicle.
All burners have a safety loop close to the tank to prevent flashbacks and are
streamlined to prevent tangling in brush. The burner wick plate is designed to
prevent fuel from dripping on your pants, leg or both when the burner is raised
above the horizontal plane.
