  • Raku Burner Question

    Updated: 2014-04-24 21:07:23
    Hi All, I'm in the process of doing some upgrades to the studio's Raku kiln and equipment. The burner head (a Ward MR100) was all rusted out so I ordered a replacement, but I have a question about sealant used on the threaded connection. When I removed the old burner head from the valve section of the rig, I noticed some sort of sealant had been used where the male and female sides meet. It had deteriorated over years of use, but it was obvious something had been applied. What is this stuff? Is it necessary if the connection is tight? If necessary, how is is best applied? Once it's on there, is it permanent? Thanks! C
