This item is the original GTT Bobcat Two gas burner including hoses and pressure regulator. Everything is fully assembled, so that the burner only needs to be connected to a propane gas cylinder and an oxygen concentrator, and then you are ready to fire it up.

This set includes the following:

- Bobcat burner from GTT - 220.00€
- 2m propane hose including connections - 8.90€
- 4m oxygen hose - 4.80€
- 50mbar pressure regulator (1,5kg/h for inside use with high pressure safety valve and pressure gauge -- Made in Germany) - 39.90€
- 50mbar Excess flow cutoff valve - 13.90€

The Bobcat is a very good dual gas burner from the U.S. company GTT. He is a very commonly used two-gas torch for glass bead making. The Bobcat is a little hotter and faster than the GTT Cricket or Nortel Minor. It works especially well when creating larger beads. The Bobcat burns oxygen and propane and produces a clean flame. This torch is a "surface mix" burner, ie Propane and oxygen are mixed at the burner surface after they are discharged from the burner nozzle. The burner has 7 propane jets. The color of the burner is "purple", see picture. The hose connections for this burner adjust oxygen and propane hoses with 6mm inside diameter.
If you want to have a longer propane or oxygen hose - no problem. Simply order the appropriate number of meters you need, and send us a note that the tube should be longer.

We use this burner in our shop BerlinBeads - and we love it! We can only recommend this burner as we're especially pleased how he is a little hotter than even the cricket and the Minor Bench Burner. In our opinion great value for money! Possibly a drawback: Some bead-makers have found that the burner itself becomes fouled faster than eg the burner from Nortel. We have heard that some cleaning/touching up of just the nozzle might be required every hour (time cost about 1 minute). We had no experience of with the problem, but think it probably has to do with the performance of the concentrator and the flame adjustment. Please note that any possible soot or fouling of the burner does not constitute a warranty claim. However we will do what we can to help you solve any burner troubles. Give us a call.
IMPORTANT: Please take care to have the installation done by a professional. Incorrect installation and/or handling represent a high risk. We take no responsibility for the security of the installation. If you have any questions, please contact us.
To help you make your descision: If you know that you would rather make larger beads or like to work fast, the Bobcat is probably the right Burner for you. If you prefer to work quietly and smaller, the Nortel Minor, or the Cricket is probably a better idea.

For customers from Switzerland (and other countries other than Germany) please note:
The standard Swiss propane bottles have a different connection than the German ones. Therefore, you will need a different propane regulator than the one that we sell. (This could also be the case for other countries other than Germany.) Please inform yourself, before you buy the propane regulator from us, if the standard propane bottle in your country has the same threaded connection as the German standard connection. If you have questions, please don´t hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help.
