Worthington Cylinders, a Worthington Industries Inc. company, has introduced a full line of hand torch products, including hand torches, kits and six interchangeable burners, to be sold at retail stores under the Worthington Pro Grade™ brand.

The full line of hand torch products now includes five specific hand torches, five hand torch kits, six unique burners for multiple applications and hand torch cylinders containing propane, MAP-Pro™ and oxygen. The products will debut at the National Hardware
Show from 6th-8th May 2008 in Las Vegas.

Harry Goussetis, President of Worthington Cylinders, enthused, “Worthington Cylinders is pleased to have partnered with Europe’s leading hand torch manufacturer, Sievert AB, to introduce an innovative, user-friendly line of hand torches and accessories,”

The Worthington Pro Grade hand torch line features the exclusive Load ‘N Lock interchange system™, which enables one hand torch to work with six different burners, each sold separately. This flexibility gives users the ability to switch from brazing to soldering to heating, shrinking or stripping without changing torches.
