Default Sodium flare from boro using with oxy cons?

I hope I'm not running afoul of the rules but I'm trying to get more insight into an issue I originally posted in the Boro Room. This thread seems to have folks with similar setups.

I run the GTT Scorpion's Bobcat center fire on an EX-20 + propane. The boro melts but I don't get a bright yellow sodium flare; it's orange and not bright (of course I wear goggles anyway). I don't even think the flame without glass is as blue as it should be.
The EX-20 (Invacare Platinum 10) flow is turned down somewhat to maximize purity. Is an orange flare normal for oxy cons?
