    Hi all
    Found this Svecia no1 in a shop today.
    Early design (?) with external NRV and pump design. No markings on the filler cap and a kind of roarer burner unknown to me - should there be a flame diverter plate on top? 2020-07-03 23.44.32.jpg 2020-07-03 23.46.00.jpg

    Hei Bjorn,
    Interesting burner on that old Svecia, could possibly be a Radius make 'UFO' design silent burner. As for the stove itself it certainly was an old design, but it was in production over a very long time period, from before 1910 through into the 1930s. A photo of the base of the tank might help narrow the dating down a little bit depending on what markings or inscriptions are to be found there. The maker would have been K. F. Erikssons, but they used a variety of different branding and provenance marks over the years. The detail of the pump rod assembly suggests that this may well be one of the earlier, certainly pre-WW1, examples.
    Helsin,

    Welcome to CCS @Bjorn M

    It's had a hard life but it should clean up nicely.

    I think it is fitted with an early silent burner but the centre spigot and perforated flame ring has been removed.
    A piece of brass tube can be brazed in to replace the centre and a standard inner and outer cap should fit.

    Svecia No.5

    I ran across a Optimus 00 that had what looks like the same burner.. It has a silent cap that inserts the burner. Looks like it could except different caps as an option. I asked the seller if any markings were on the burner and was told no markings.. 1235DE10-8A3D-49ED-8B6F-6607DFD6B840.jpeg FB5195C3-2D0B-4629-94DD-FD267EB947DB.jpeg

    Thank you for input :-)

    Since there are no markings from ring or spigot, I'll braze a tube to a inner cap so the burner stays intact like Ethermans photo. It won't be a single unit as the outer cap stays separate.
    Caps ordered and I'm waiting for delivery.

    Best regards,
    Bjorn

    @Bjorn M

    Now that you know what you need I'm looking forward to seeing it up and running. :thumbup:

    Good idea. I think that is both the best and the easiest solution. I have done that very successfully to get round exactly the same problem with old Svea silent tube burners.
