    Title:Evaluating the effectiveness of a fire torch system for prescribed fire operations
 
    Year:2005
 
    Status:Completed
 
    Researcher(s):Wally McCulloch (Lead)
 
    Abstract:Fire-Trol Canada Company, based in Kamloops, BC manufactures and distributes a torch system known as the Buckmaster Terra Torch. It is commonly referred to as the Terra Torch, and uses a Honda volume pump to propel burning gelled fuels up to 15 metres. FERIC researchers (now FPInnovations) evaluated the effectiveness of the Terra Torch for under-burning, igniting logging debris piles, and igniting standing trees to create crown fires.
