CiT Mutant X Alcohol Stove

Postby SCX2000SR » Mon Jan 17, 2011 11:19 pm

hi there,

Just thought of sharing my latest alcohol stove design.
Blog http://www.taiwancamping.net/2011/01/id ... stove.html
Improved design of existing open jet alcohol stoves. Works as pressurized or open jet stove. Able to use with or without pot stand
Try it out and let me know.

Thank you. I have made those stoves and they are difficult to light in cold temperatures. A pot of cold water put onto them makes the fire disappear. :o

The candle assist made mine get too hot :o

Your stoves look good and work well also, congratulations.

Thank you for sharing your talents.

@Zelph, ConnieD
Thanks for the comment on the blog and welcome greetings. :D

About putting a pot of cold water during cold weather. I have not try it on snow but I feel that adding a turbo base and pre-heat the alcohol would help lighting up the stove. The base would also create a buffer between the stove and snow. As for putting the pot of cold water, did you try to use a pot stand instead and use the stove as open jet system. I have very good boiling time results. This design was to give an option for different

I did experiment with different diffuser sizes, initially the port holes was 10mm from the stove jet holes. But after increasing to 15mm, it worked better. The hot gas would jet out from the stove and pre-mix with hot air around the port hole and thus giving a better flame.

Another note I found out was using windscreen, by placing the windscreen too close to pot it does create a bigger flame.

Pre-heating the alcohol would surely help it a lot.

Yes, I used a pot stand above the stove and that caused the fuel to be consumed too fast for good efficiency.
