I just saw one of those wicks in Pier One Imports for the first time. It was for a catalytic oil lamp used to disperse scents from scented oil. After lit, it is covered with a vented cap and it smolders. The heat disperses the scent. Here is an example:

I was curious how it would work with alcohol too, but Pier One wanted $12.00 for one wick. Too much for my curiosity. Thanks for sharing Oops. Where did you get yours and for how much?

I made a burner using 4 of the heating elements I purchased around the same time as you started this thread.

I made one out of hand warmer heating elemets also.

I used Iso91 alcohol in the ceramic elements and HEET alcohol in the hand warmer elements.

Both worked well but need to be heated up a little for them to function on their own using the Platinum catalytic properties in their heater elements.

The ceramic burners burn at a temberature around 600 degrees in the very center of them. I used an infrared temp sensing gun to measure the tems on and around them. Placing an aluminum cup directly on top of the burners makes them go ot after a short time. :(

Zelph,

I followed your reference to this site, and found your posting here. I hope you don't mind.

I am fascinated by this reaction. I have a few things coming in the mail in the next 2 weeks for playtime ... I mean SCIENCE!!!!

600 degrees on the old ceramic wick-ends? No kidding? Did you do any testing to see how long they would keep putting out that kind of heat for a given amount of fuel. I am curious if this exothermic reaction is more efficient (in terms of thermal output per volume of fuel) than straight combustion.

Now if you'll excuse me, as a new member, I have to go dig around the site for a bit.

Cheers.

Chris
