Several.

You can probably run the center fire off of two 5LPM concentrators (although I have tried it and it doesn't work that well). Off two concentrators the outer flame would barely run. If you went with three or four concentrators, it may work.

But a CC is probably best left to run on tanked oxygen. A CC needs a lot of oxygen to run well.

I have run my Carlisle CC from an Airsep AS-20 (different model number now?) which puts the oxy into a holding tank at 56 pounds which is then regulated down to 10-15 pounds for the torch.

How long can you run the outer flame without draining the holding tank?

Also, how large of an outer flame can you get?

It's taken me a while, but I think I'm ready to answer why I like boro. I've tried over and over again to go back and spend time on soft glass, but every time has been a disappointment for me. There's just something about the colors you can achieve in boro that don't even compare to the WYSIWYG soft glass colors. And I love the clear!

As I was filling one last soft glass order yesterday, I came up with another reason - the soft glass was exploding all over my work table. I ended up with 3/4 of the rod in tiny pieces - many of them landing on me and leaving burns. I rarely, if ever, have to worry about exploding glass and burns with boro glass.

I love that I can take one color rod and come up with several different results. There's some science to it and I find it challenging - something I just couldn't find with soft glass. That might be the main reason for me - the challenge. I take constant notes, have a boro "notebook" and sample beads kept in a box with recipes. Damn it's fun!!

I did not know this thread was even here. I would love to see it as a sticky so you can find it easier. Lots of very useful info. Even better I would love to see some boro experts start a thread on color and best way to use it.
