    To start out, I havent seen this burner anywhere so can't give yuo straight answers. It looks a bit like it's a larger version of the 123 burner.

    How big is it? Does the threads match any standard tanks? Like a 1 pint 1/2 pint..

    I'm thinking it could have been some experiment towards running standard kero stoves on white gas?

    Hello Iani.
    It looks old to me but I don't know anything about it.
    The various stoves that you have been displaying recently are also very interesting. A nice collection you have. :mrgreen: John

    Looks like a Campus 4 or 5 burner bell.

    Bit late on this thread, but my thinking is start from first principles. To me it doesn't look anything like a kero burner.

    Could be white gas, but I'm thinking that the control valve would be built in. If the control valve sat below the burner head on a separate assembly then the whole vapourisation process starts to look a bit strange.

    So I'm with Nick's suggestion that it's most likely a burner from a gassie on the basis they often have controls remote from the burner. My other thought supporting this view is that this doesn't seem to have a configuration that suggests it needs to vapourise a liquid fuel to burn.

    Therefore I wonder if it's a burner from one of the gassies shown on the last page of the brochure posted HERE? Unfortunately the pics aren't detailed enough to determine that for certain.

    Cheers, Graham.

    I suggest looking closely at this one picture before it goes away. Link

    Paul and Graham

    Paul - I've got two of those stoves, and the burners are not for that type of gas.
    They are either Petrol/White gas or paraffin/kerosene.

    In any case I'll fire one up tomorrow on the 2 pint stove, as I am curious to see how they perform.

    I've got four of these burners, they came with a big Optimus jobbie, so presumably they are for Kerosene/Paraffin.

    Cheers
    Ian

    I have a Monitor Picnic paraffin stove with a similar looking bell burner. It sits on a lipstick type "generator".

    Sorry - late to this too!

    I'm with Jeff on this one - Campus 5.

    Gassie's would be 'Sievert' not 'Svea'.

    I don't have a parts list for the Campus 5 but the burner for the Campus 1 is similar but with the spreader above the bell & is part number 5563 so I'd say similar vintage & range to the 5583.

    Check out these Campus 5's:

    Hi Ross

    I had a look, when Jeff mentioned about the Campus 5.
    The shaft and the spindle seem to have been an integral part of that burner on the 5, but there is nothing on this burner bell, the jet hole is very small, so I'm guessing that it would be petrol.

    I'll get it fired up on both petrol and paraffin tomorrow, and get some pics on at the weekend probably.

    I'm intrigued by it even more.

    Hi Ross, Good point regarding SVEA vs Sievert.

    I'm intrigued then by the fact that this burner, and, presumably then Campus stoves (although not the "3" as I have one of those), do not have replaceable jets. What's the smallest component that this burner breaks down into if you need to replace due to the jet getting enlarged or otherwise damaged?

    Cheers, Graham.

    Not sure Graham.

    The loosely similar Campus 1 burner looks to have an unusual jet (no 91) clamped between the basket & stem.

    In principle, they are all separate components, but in this instant, all three have been pressed to together.

    There is no nipple, just a hole in the centre of the components.

    In the two photos below it is running on Paraffin.

    It runs ok, but when you add more pressure the flames moves strongly from left to right.
    I have yet to try it on Petrol.
