Torch issues

Torch has had to be replaced a hand full of times in the past few months. Wondering if anyone has had similar issues?

Yes. Just bought a new instrument. Strange noise whilst warming up and a 2cm narrow slit-like hole appeared. Aspirating water. One torch down and instrument not used in anger yet....!

I teach at a small liberal arts college. We've operated our instrument for 3 years with light to moderate use. We just had a torch "blow" - It burned a 1 cm irregular vertical slit in the torch. I was wondering if you had resolved your recurring problem ... We have only had one failure, but would like to know if there is a root cause for the failure that we can prevent. Thanks for any help you can give.
