Experiences using Drip Torch


Recommended Posts

To whom it may concern

I am hoping that you can assist me with a research and development matter.

I am a third year BA Product Design student in Wales. For my final advanced creative enquiry assignment, I have been researching and looking at developing a tool which could be used as an alternative to a device known as a drip torch. There have been reported incidents, of accidents involving ignited fuel causing injury to the user whilst using a drip torch. In order to offer greater control and minimise risk, I am gathering information and ideas from individuals who have experience of using the afore mentioned tool for prescribed burning matters.

Thank you in advance for any information.

We are using them in Lancashire Fire and Rescue with our burn team. We've not had any issues with ignited fuel or near misses but happy to have a conversation with you as part of your research.

I can also put you in touch with the Wildfire lead down in South Wales FRS if that's closer.

Best regards
