  • Check the integrity of the safety valves, replace them at least every 5 years or before if they show signs of wear or damage.

USE

  • Put the lance into the end of the lance-holder without rotative movement.
  • Hand tighten the locking nut.
  • Open the oxygen main shut-off valve mounted before the pressure reducer.
  • Adjust the pressure to the required amount.
  • Warm the tip of the lance using a suitable heat source.
  • Light the lance by slowly opening the lever of the lance holder until fully open.
  • Once work has been completed, remove lance from molten pool, hold the lance horizontally for a few seconds with the valve fully open, to allow any slag to disperse.
  • Finally close the main valve on the pressure reducer.
