Greatly appreciate any information.
Looks like a bunsen burner that doubles as a stove...kinda neat...I like it. Other than that, I have no idea.
Hi Dave, I have never seen one of these Barthel lamps before but it looks similar to the British "Lamb" stoves produced by John Shaw and Sons (JS&S):
Hi the original Pallad burner is shown on Page 6 of this catalogue. It was a spirit/alcohol burner:
Yours is a "new" Pallad but if you are planning to try it use meths first for the fuel.
G'day mate, thanks for your reply. I used your advice and lit it up with spirits, worked well. Only difference from your photos is mine hasn't any release valve or flame adjustment. The burner has about a 1mm dia hole on a hex screw, maybe could have had replacement screws with sm or larger dia for different flames?.Maybe an earlier model?. Also uploaded some new photos.
Hi. It's good to know the history of the lamb lamp. It's still in great condition. Also Makes me realise how good I had it at school.
Hi Dave you have added some good pictures of a laboratory burner working very well. Your burner would have had the same function as my Lamb burner/stove.
The Lamb is also self pressurising, has a fixed jet, and no separate air-release screw. Because it was used with petrol as fuel, the flame was likely blown out, or smothered , to ensure there was no source of ignition, before the filler cap was opened to release tank pressure and stop fuel flow.
Hi Dave, your first photo, of the burner flame is beautiful. You should post a copy here:
Hi! Today i found the equal "bunsen burner" sadly without the pot rest in the first treat shown. Just needed a new gasket for the filler cap. After pre heating it sounds great but don't lit up. Only with the lighter flame on it or when i close the long hole it burns nice and blue. In every case a nice powerful burner.
