Bernzomatic manufactures dependable, safe hand torches as well as fuel cylinders and tanks for propane, MAP-Pro™ and oxygen gases. Choosing the right fuel depends on the task at hand and the type of torch you’re using.

Be sure your torch is compatible with the fuel you’ve selected. You can also contact Bernzomatic for help selecting the right fuel and products for your needs.

Oxy / MAP-Pro: Ideal for cutting and welding iron and steel, when you don't need a sharp flame such as that from an oxy-acetylene torch. A specialty oxy-fuel torch is needed.

MAP-Pro: Ideal for soldering larger size copper pipes, brazing and heat-treating, MAP-Pro delivers a higher flame temperature, which allows tasks to be completed more quickly. Choose a torch specially designed to work with MAP-Pro™ higher heat fuel such as the TS4000 and TS8000.

Propane: Ideal for soldering copper pipes, heating frozen pipes and rusted nuts, softening paint and other lower-heat DIY and art projects, as well as for use in the kitchen. Use with a variety of torches including self-igniting and manual-ignition.  Pick a wide flame torch for most applications which don't need pinpoint-type heat.

Butane: Ideal for light soldering or detailed work, butane gas is compatible with smaller, hand held tools such as micro torches. It is also the fuel used to power Bernzomatic utility lighters.
