Dual Flame Burner solid aluminum

Post by zelph » Tue Dec 11, 2007 12:23 pm

I received a work of art in the mail yesterday from the land of OZ. Tony and I worked out a trade. He machined a Dual flame burner out of a solid piece of aluminum round stock. He's a Master Machinist for sure.

I had to test it as soon as I could, so out into the garage I went.(28 degrees) It was it's first fire up that was captured on camera. The wick is new and showed newness in it's flame color. It's 3 inches in height and 2 inches in diameter. Air enters through the side holes to feed the central air jet that forms the central flame.

I put the burner under the flame-o-meter to check for pot height dimension. The pot support will be incorporated into the burner in some fashion. Have not decided the design for the pot support yet.

I used some windsheid wiper solvent in the glass pot on my flame-o-meter to prevent it from freezing. When I moved the stove from under the pot to take some photos the rising flame ignited the wiper solvent. It was hard to see that it was burning. It was just by chance that I realised it was burning. The dark photo is the solvent burning, garage lights off.

More info to follow as I test for boil times. Looking for the under 4:00 min. boil

I've included some photos of earlier experimenting with this design. It goes back almost 2 years.

wow. scary!
s soon as i started playing with wicks i was thinking about a design like you have... but i hadn't got to the point of air intakes.
nice nice work.

i've was thinking of having a metalsmigh friend silver soldering a brass prototype for me - but machining aluminum is a great way to go! no seams, no leaks! looks cool!

more pics please. more action shots.
always impressed!

And I thought they were full of BS when they told me winshield washer fluid was a flamable liquid! I worked as a store manager for a couple of years and apparently washerfluid is considered a flamable liquid but legally only in massachussetts,LOL! :mrgreen:

Oops, I'm thing of piping in some pure oxygen into one of those holes on the side :D

I'll be posting more photos tomorrow and some test results.

I never gave windshield solvent a second thought as to what was in it that kept it from freezing. I can testify to all that it burns, I seen it with my little eyes and even got a photo of it. :D

I'm under the weather, can't function very well to do testing. I think we'll see some good stuff come out of the OZ. Tony's got the equipment and the know how. We hav'nt seen the end of Tony's great ideas. Thanks Tony!!!!!!
