GTTScorpion 4-Stud w/ Lynx Center Fire
The Scorpion has an 8 jet outer fire using our new patent pending 100% surface mix design that optimizes 10 LPM or two 5 LPM concentrators with optimal results. The Scorpion makes the flame size of larger torches with fewer jets, owing the phenomenal performance to the newest GTT innovations in jet design.
The Scorpion was designed with concentrators, low pressure and low consumption in mind. The Scorpion runs great on one 10 LPM concentrator, two 5 LPM concentrators or tanked oxygen. Oxygen consumption is 11 LPM (22 CFH) at the maximum flame size. It requires as low as ¼ psi to 5 psi of natural gas or propane with a low consumption rate of 1.5 LPM (3 CFH) at the maximum flame size. The Scorpion is the master at using low pressures for optimal results for soft or hard glass.

Scorpion with Lynx center fire kicks ass
by Nick Langford
I bought this new Gtt Scorpion a short while back. It is head and shoulders above the old style scorpion. Not even it the same league. It has a hell of a punch especially with the lynx center fire. I am able to make 2.5 to 3 inch marbles with ease. I have been doing 50 mm vac stacks with it as well. Classic Gtt heat for an amazing price. This will be a torch I hold onto for a good long while.
Powerful little beast
This is a great workhorse. I work boro, and I moved up to this from smaller torches. The Lynx center fire is similar to those, but with more punch and versatility, easily getting to a needle point flame with the triple mix valve. Adding the outer fire gives it the heat to melt glass quickly and work larger pieces. I'm able to work colors on this that were muddier or took a long time on smaller torches.<br><br>I run this torch on a smaller HVLP setup - a holding tank and one 10lpm concentrator. I'm usually at 20 PSI oxygen and 5-7 PSI propane. Working smaller pieces with just the center fire uses much less than 10lpm oxygen, and I can use the outer fire for quite a while before my holding tank gets below 20 PSI, so this torch is very easy on the oxygen. Even when it's less than 20 PSI, it's still usable, just a little less forceful and a bit bushier flame.<br><br>For anyone moving up from a small torch and looking for a 2 stage that can happily run on concentrators, this is your beast.
