Feuerhand operating principle cold blast design
Traditional technique, unchanged for 125 years! The operating principle of the Feuerhand hurricane lanterns is simple, but quite functional. Due to the clever construction, the wick burns down evenly and with a quiet flame. Each tank filling provides for up to 20 hours of light on your terrace or in your garden, totally independent of electricity.
The Feuerhand hurricane lantern consists of a tank, a glass cylinder, the burner with wick and the chimney.
The success of the Feuerhand hurricane lantern Baby Special 276 is owed to the sophisticated airflow: Its operating principle is a cold blast design. In a cold blast lantern, fresh air circulates between the inside and the outside of the chimney and is warmed up through the pipe system. Fresh air goes through the side pieces to the burner and supplies the flame with enough oxygen for the combustion. The hot air from the combustion escapes through the chimney.
Due to constant supply of oxygen, the flame is brighter compared to those of other constructions and thus offers an even and warm light – independent of electricity.
Does my Feuerhand hurricane lantern leak?
Please note that the cold-blast lantern is not a closed system. Improper handling can lead to leakage.
Please read this check list in order to verify why your Feuerhand lantern is leaking:
- Avoid overfilling: The maximum capacity is 340 ml (up to the first bulge of the tank). Please see the maximum filling level in the user manual.
- Once the lantern is filled, place or hang it in a vertical position: The drawing shows that fuel can leak out when it sloshes around in the lantern. Do not move your lantern once it is filled! Remove the fuel completely before transporting the lantern.
- Avoid temperature changes:Do not expose your lantern to big temperature changes for the oil expands and starts to spread out. Therefore, always fill your lantern according to the current purpose.
- Turn down the wick properly:If the wick is turned down incorrectly after the lantern has cooled down, the fuel moves on due to capillary effect and leaks out of the tank.
