    Have added this Høvik Verk Standard 36 to my collection .
    A ubiquitous stove in Norway.
    Posting as it seems to be all original with Høvik Verk marked burner and burner cap .A good looking well-made apparatus in my opinion

    That really came out nice. The flame shots are outstanding.

    Very nice. My Radius with that type of burner doesn't burn that great.

    @A A C ,
    Thank you for excellent post.

    It is bad form, *for me, to make mention but i post re flame shot. Others surely know better than I but your cherry red is underburn. Flame spreaders get cherry red. For top caps on silents, cherry red is not what you want (= short lived top cap).
    This example link, is too much for we mere mortals to shoot for but i note it to point out the UFO burner produces healthy / robust flame while top is not cherry red, which is normal function.

    *Bad form for me because to-date I have a terrible track record with silent burner performance. For now, I am the last one to advise re improving flame on a silent.
    I post as a courtesy, just so you are aware sooner with the best interest in mind for you and your rare Høvik Verk UFO burner cap.

    @OMC Thank you for the heads up.
    Any tips for remedying underburn ? The stove / burner is clean and the tank pressure is not excessive .

    I have three stoves with ‘UFO’ burners . They all burn hot like this .
    However , the images I posted were taken in low light . In normal room light the cap doesnt glow as red

    Normal room light . . . . Low light
    I took these two photos wthin 5 seconds of each other .
    Maybe I am clutching at straws here .
    I made sure the cap was clean and sitting flat on the burner without gaps, no carbon or other gunk on top of the burner. Cleaned the jet . Primed then lit the stove from a good few inches above the burner .
