Blow lamps, or blow torches as they call them in USA, burning gasoline (petrol) and kerosene (paraffin) to create a concentrated flame of heat have been used since around 1800.
a new vaporising technique, especially suitable for blow lamps, was developed. This led to a new, efficient design of the modern blow lamp as we know it today.
With the introduction of propane
gas in the 1950´s as a much safer and cleaner heat and light source, the market for the gasoline/kerosene powered blow lamp diminished.
However, still today, there are several manufacturers
producing the old brass blow lamp in countries like India, China and Korea, to be sold to markets where propane gas is difficult to find or is too expensive. And the design is identical to what it was more than 100 years ago.
This web site is dedicated to the Blow Lamp, an appliance that has survived with little change for over a hundred years, since the first commercial model was made. The early design principles are essentially the same today as they
were then, a testimony to the insight of the pioneers in the blow lamp industry.
The site is divided into simple areas, you may browse through images of blow lamps from different blow lamp
manufacturers and read about the company history, or you may follow links to other sites on the Internet, although there are only a few which relate to blow lamps.
