What wick to use with IGI 4630

Recommended Posts

What wick do you recommend I use with IGI 4630? I am using 3" tumblers. Also using about 7% FO. What sizes would you recommend with the following wicks: LX, HTP, or CDs? Thanks!

I've gone to zinc core with 4630.  I'm using 44-32-18 for containers around that size.

Good to know! Thank you! Have you tired any of the ones I mentioned? If so, just curious what your results were.

I think I've tried them all.  Most were reasonable once I found the right size, and likely would have been fine.  I actually liked the Ecos, but from my reading online, it appears that many 4630 folks prefer zinc core, so I went with that.  If you prefer a particular series, grab a sample pack and just run a few tests on different sizes.

I usually start my testing with the LX wicks from what you mentioned. For that size container, probably something like the LX 22 as a starting point. Or the HTP can do well too, HTP 83 if I were to start testing. I haven't tried the CDs in that wax yet though.

Just wanted to post an update. I'm almost finished with my test burn (3" tumbler, 7% FO from CS). So far you all have been spot on! The HTP 83, LX 22, and LX 20 are performing the best. I tried several CDs but they flames have been way too big (even with trimming) and they have given off a lot of soot. 

 

Thanks again for all the help!
