Last summer Germany trip find. Interesting one, tank with pump:
VERY nice find! I want one!
Very nice! I love bench top stoves, they remind me of sundry bedsits I've lived in.
I can't tell too well from the photos Viginijus, but I'm assuming that the silent burner is purely for alcohol and unsuitable for kerosene.
With the pump, it got me wondering if it would just need a jet change.
Hi, I am lucky to get the stove. I can't light this stove. I have your insights about this burner.
Nice find @MSLU.
The first time possibly I've had a serious look around the Hahnel section and they seem to have produced some quite interesting designs from the examples. There is at least one where they have used the classic alcohol 'Turm' frame for kerosene burners. Which suggests this may also be one. @presscall as you suspected in 2012.
There wasn't any follow up on this on a final view from Virginijus at the time.
There is a Perfektus in the gallery with what looks like a 210/00 tank packed underneath.
I know this doesn't answer your question directly, MSLU but knowing that it is actually designed for kerosene will obviously help.
Thanks for your message. It is sure that the stove I got had been used but there is no grease on the burner or fuel tank or anywhere on this stove.
It’s interesting thing that the burner look like burning kerosene.
I really want to make the vintage stove back to life.
Hi, your stove is a pressure type, and looks like it was designed to burn kerosene (paraffin). Check seals and washers first to see that are in good condition.
It should do no harm to try it:
@MSLU, I think your additional images are pretty conclusive, as @kerophile has kindly noted kerosene would be your first fuel to try. Just treat it like you would any new to you stove.
It's not immeadiately clear how easy the access is to the jet/nipple but it might be useful to try a standard pricker to check the size and possibility of being worn.
Look forward to seeing the results and we may have to change the thread title.
As luck would have it promted by a recent Primus 341 post shows what should be an alcohol burner configuration, which I don't think Hahnel fitted in this instance. Burner images later down the thread.
Unfortunately, I can't pump this tank beacuse of leakage. All old washers are replaced. I'm finding out where leakage is.
