Q:I have the TS4000 torch head l, and would like to purchase the heat shrink tip

Answer This Question

A:  I don't know. I have both types of torches and the attachments look similar. I'd suggest you look at Berzomatic's web pages and see if they list a part number for the tip assembly and perhaps an interchangeability cross reverence. That would make it easier to look up on the HD web pages.

Q:I have a n old brass Bernzomatic valve but the top has no opening. What is this for?
by|Feb 7, 2018
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  The older torches had a brass tube that attached to the valve and the head threaded onto it. In between them was a brass orifice, that looks like a solid plug. It has a very small hole in it to reduce the volume of propane delivered. This unit is an entire assembly; valve, regulator, torch head and a piezoelectric ignition system. The flame is rather broad, as it is designed to shrink large areas of plastic film. Think of wrapping a boat up for winter storage in tight plastic wrap, or shipping materials, or heating a large surface.

    Q:Huge fan of the bernzomatic torch heads. I was wondering which would burn hotter, the TS4500HS heat shrink OR the high heat ts8000? I'm a glass blower looking to find the best/hottest burning torchhead you produce.

    Answer This Question

    A:  I've used my old torch for several decades, and it still works fine. This torch is not the 'pencil point' flame tip. It is more suited to heating large areas. The difference between the two is where the 'hot spot' is concentrated. Perhaps the manufactures web page shows the heat patterns....https://www.bernzomatic.com/ Ir runs on the standard propane tank (thin/tall ~ 14.7 oz fuel), (fat/short ~ 16 oz fuel), or MAPP gas (if you can find it, the yellow tank) of hotter burning gas. I generally use propane, since the work I do does not need temperatures that hot. MAPP gas is 2~3 times the cost for the same sized tank of propane. The difference in flame tip temperatures (MAPP ~ +3600°F vs Propane ~ 2600°F) {from the web} The torch tip makes more difference than the type of gas in most cases. The thin/tall type of tanks are easier to hold an maneuver around the work piece, short/fat tanks are better on a stationary/bench application. They all have the same fitting.

    Wide Flame
    The torch has a much wider flame that looks like a rose bud in place of the standard pencil flame and spreads the heat over a larger area compared to most other torches. This torch says its best to use MAP-Pro gas but it seems to work just as well on straight Propane gas. The flame on MAP-Pro is just a bit hotter but its not noticeable when working on most jobs. When shrinking most of the standard shrink tubing you must hold the flame well away from the surface and work area. Since this is an open flame most of the work should be done in an open area away from any surface that could be scorched or burnt. This could be used for many other jobs as well. Thawing out frozen locks and pipes would also be a good use for this torch. I have been using this to start the wood stove for the past month and the wide flame does the job faster than a pencil flame torch. Overall this is a well built tool that should last may years.

    Great flame when it works ... and I am not sure when that will be next
    The Bernzomatic BZ4500HS seems like a good quality torch head made in the USA from global components. The HS in the model number means “Heat Shrink Tip” and this torch has a wide flame for larger surfaces (see photo). It has auto start/stop ignition and a “lock” button, so no need to keep the ignition button pressed during use. It does not have a regulator to adjust the flame. I got this to use in the kitchen and around the grill. I attached it to a 1 lb. tank of standard propane though the packaging recommends MAP gas (“also compatible with propane”). At first, the torch was easy to start … one or two presses of the ignition button and all was good. After a number of uses though, it has become difficult or nearly impossible to start. I have changed tanks but no difference. When it does work, it produces a wide flame good for melting cheese on Nachos, searing meat cooked sous-vide, and for lighting the charcoal in a chimney starter. The wide flame covers far more ground than other torches and vastly larger than butane “meringue burners”. And the flame is very hot. With the first meat sear, I destroyed a pie pan, and burned through a hot pad creating a mess. This is great for searing and melting. It is very hot so be careful with the kitchen tools that might suffer damage. Its drawback, and it is a serious one, is its lack of reliability. For example, I have not been able to start the torch after many attempts while writing this review. If this were food, it would be cold by now. Hopefully this particular torch is defective but I cannot recommend it due to poor reliability.

    Very Nice Torch
    This torch works great, it has a wider flame for your bigger soldering, heating or heat shrink jobs, the self igniter works first time every time. The head has a decent shape and is easy to hold. You start it by turning the big black knob on the front to unlock it and then squeeze the knob, which turns on the gas and ignites it, you can then either hold in on the knob or push the silver button on the top to lock it on, it can be easily started, stopped or locked with one hand. It is designed to use either propane or mapp gas, it works well with either but it puts out a lot of heat with either but does put out more heat with the mapp gas. It would be nice to be able to change the tips but as far as I can tell that is not an option, (I could be wrong). It does not have a flame adjustment, that would be a nice feature, but is not mandatory. It is well built and nice solid metal construction. I have several BernzOmatic torches and they all have held up very well, All in all a tool well worth having.

    Awesome Powerful Torch!!
    This is an absolute must have for anyone who uses a torch on a regular basis. I use this type of torch for the occasional copper work, starting my smoker, and occasional bon fires. The torch has a wide flame and works best with the map gas. The trigger mechanism has a locking feature which is nice. Although it has a lock, I always seperate the torch from the gas cylinder for increased safety. There is a silver little button on the top that enables the torch to be lit with a continual flame. This is a must have. I strongly recommend!!

    Got this one as a spare / backup unit that I will keep at my daughters house.
    I've used Bernzomatic torches for decades, they work well. Solid brass construction and is designed for a standard (narrow / tall) 14.1 oz propane tank. It will also fit the (fat / short) 16 oz tanks (same fitting) used on portable grills. The 'fat' tanks are harder to hold. I did not try it on MAPP gas; as they don't recommend it for this unit. This unit does not have the piezo ignition. You need to use a 'sparker' or lighter to ignite it. Easy to light and us, the heavy brass tip helps to counterweight the propane tank. Good for copper plumbing repairs, or point heating a stuck bolt. The gas orifice on this unit is 'built in', and not replaceable; my old torches have a replaceable orifice. Hint- Never store the torch with the tank attached...I learned this long ago. Something in the tool box moved and caused the valve open a crack; it was empty when I needed it! Also a potential safety hazard.

    I have mixed feelings about this product. I purchased this item to replace the identical item purchased more than a year ago. I finally went to use that first one and it won’t light. I have contacted Bernzomatic twice to have the original one repaired/replaced and have not received a response. This new one works, the first one didn’t, and the Bernzomatic lifetime warranty is a joke!!
