The Bravo Glass Bead Burner is a stainless steel Bravo Bench Burner was designed specifically with the needs of the artistic flame worker in mind. A dual-purpose torch, it will work easily with both soft and borosilicate glass. Bethlehem's Bravo is one of the hottest new torches on the market today!

Made with the precision and quality of all Bethlehem burners, the Bravo's output is surface-mixed and whisper-soft. By varying the atmosphere of your flame, you can use your torch like a fiery paintbrush for shading and highlights. The razor-sharp center is excellent for creating small details. For marbles, sculpting, and vessels, this sleek new torch is both cost-effective and fuel-efficient.

Gas Equipment

for lampworkers, Glass Beadmakers and Glassblowers


Oxygen Concentrator Click Here to see our Oxygen Concentrators (Oxygen Generators)


Gas Regulators

Two regulators are required when you use a two gas, (oxygen and propane) torch. They fit between the gas tanks and the gas hose. None are needed if you are using the Hot Head torch. Oxygen Regulator is not needed if you are using an Oxygen Concentrator.

Gas Hoses

Gas Twin Hose Set Use this hose when you use a two gas torch (oxygen and propane). To attach torch, push the cut ends onto the torch and secure with a hose clamp. These are twin hose sets, one for oxygen and one for propane. The brass end of the hoses are attached to the gas regulators. Propane hose fittings are left handed threads and colored red and oxygen is right handed and colored green - This prevents a mix-up when attaching hoses.

CAUTION Do not use the easy to find oxygen/acetylene type hoses. The propane gas will rot them. The hoses we sell are made for all types of gas including propane. Hose ends have female brass fittings.

Item# Length Ends of hose - hose diameter Price
T124 12 ft (3.7 meters) Female "B" fitting one side and cut end of hose other side
1/4" diameter hose
$22
T254 25 ft (7.7 meters) Female "B" fitting on both ends
1/4" diameter hose
$34

The below larger diameter hose is only used if when you need a large hose to fit over the large inlet fittings on some torches. (You can get the smaller 1/4" hose listed above on these large inlet fittings with a bit of effort. A trick is to immerse the end of the hose in very hot water to soften the end.)

Flashback Arrestors

Flashback ArrestorsIn some rare situations, a flame can travel back down a hose to the gas tank and cause an explosion.

This device helps prevent this reverse gas flow and flashback by using a reverse flow check valve and a flame arrestor.

Leak Detection Fluid

Item# Description Price
leak detection fluid Leak Detection Fluid 4oz bottle
A must if you assemble your gas equipment. Use when connecting gas hoses, regulators, torches, flashback arrestors, quick connects, etc. After tightening your fittings, pressurize your gas line. Then dribble a few drops on every fitting. If there is a leak, you will see bubbles at the leaky fitting. You may hear about using soap to check for leaks. It is VERY DANGEROUS! Many soaps have oil in it and oil + pressurized oxygen can be very dangerous. Google it! This liquid is specially formulated just for this purpose and is the only liquid you should use for checking gas leaks.
