    This stove was a modified No:100 & supplied to the Middle Eastern market. It's purpose was to heat pots suspended from tripods or hooks or to heat ovens. The long tube between tank & burner helped prevent the tank being overheated.

    It comes with a lipstick burner with both silent & roarer caps plus an adapter riser tube to take a regular silent or roarer burner. The box label shows it fitted with a silent burner & no spirit cup.

    It also comes with a pressure gauge fitted to the filler cap but no note of recommended pressure in the instructions.

    When it's empty the burner assembly overbalances the stove - so you'd hear a thud when the fuel got low! In the first picture the burner is propped up as there is no fuel in the tank.

    It was not provided with legs or pan-ring to convert to normal use.

    The spirit-cup is quite thin gauge brass & has a split in it from new.

    I saw one on an auction site recently but never seen any others. This one is 'special' to me in more ways than the modification as it was a gift to me from Primus about 10 years ago.

    Hi Ross a very generous gift from Primus a very nice example of a rare unique stove i see one simular on the bay a short while ago.
    What i aam surprised about is the size of the tank being as it was for the middle east market used for cooking pots over a tripod and heating ovens this stove could be in use for several hours a larger fuel tank would be more suitable for the purpose it was made for and the extra weight of the larger tank would make it more stable when the fuel level drops,
    What a great example to have in your collection Ross

    Hey Ross,

    Outstanding!

    Is it new or fired?

    If not new, would you care to arrange a demo of this stove cooking stew in a suspended cast iron pot?

    I can imagine some of us (perhaps in Oregon?) will be trying to recreate this unusual contraption.

    Hi Ross
    That conversion riser is the same as that used on a Svea 101 to enable it to use the silent burner.

    Ross,
    Great example of a mnufacturer meeting a customer base. I wonder if with some copper tubbing and compression fittings one could be made from parts available at a hardware stores.

    No doubt someone here will replicate this. Look forward to seeing it.

    "Dr. Seuss, I'd like you to meet Mr. Primus".

    That is one funky, hipster stove you have there! Middle Eastern for sure, the hookah of pressure stoves!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi,

    As you may recall, I showed you the Svea 100 I bought in Sweden last summer.
    I wonder, as topic starter already mentioned, the spirit cup is thin, it even has a split, even mine.
    Is there a purpose in that, should one pour spirit in it and use it in this condition or should one mend it first?

    Regards,

    Ton.

    Hi @Spiritburner @OMC upload_2021-3-16_18-36-58.jpeg I was interested to see the company details on the plastic bags containing the spanner/wrench and pressure gauge:

    upload_2021-3-16_18-36-58.jpeg

    This identifies the manufacturer as AB Sievert Apparater.
    A B Max Sievert was acquired by Svenska Esso in 1964 and the new company was called AB Sievert Apparater.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.

    In 1966 AB Sievert Apparater took over the Primus part of the Bahco group & the new amalgamated company was called Primus-Sievert AB.
    The Sundyberg factory was closed in 1969/70 & the Svea brand was acquired by Optimus as they had done with the Primus brand nearly a decade earlier.

    the above extract is from:
