Dear Ms. Mann:
I suggest you obtain from a number of these firms and
makea direct comparison of each on your own. Simply put, the
Spirflame[tm] costs a great deal more to produce. The Spirflame[tm]
is a rather advanced unit. I worked for the firm for many years. The
Spirflame[tm] is fully patented “multi-cell” unit and this technology
was developed by Spirig the manufacturer. A Spirflame[tm] also has a
better range of flames, it can run much larger flames and much
smaller flames. These flames can also be easily adjusted and this
easily repeatable flame size, the same day after day is very helpful
for torch work. It is so accurate, it is the only microflame system
easily automated. A multi-cell unit produce s more gas (multiples),
much drier gas, more easily adjusted and more accurately controlled.
It consumes less electrical energy and is far more robust, can run
much longer time periods requiring less maintenance.
The other (single cell) units are an older technology which is
limited in gas production and requires more maintenance, more often.
Each unit has their place and value. And after sales service is also
It is a good example of, you get what you pay for.
