Trangia #27

this kit is a bit heavey and bulky for a solo backpacker. great for kayaking though. it's a -8 kit with 'Duossal' pots and pan that Trangia no longer offers. Duossal means that the pots are stainless on the inside and aluminum on the outside. the new -8 kits are hard anodized non stick or plain hard anodized aluminum.

testing:
room temp all
2c water
18ml methyl hydrate ("the Neufeld Principle"?)

boil: 5:20
out: 6:50

5:15
6:50

5:45
7:05

it's tomorrow.
max fuel capacity of the Trangia burner is 3oz.

note that the burner is identical for the Mini, the #27, and the large #25.

Zelph; when you destroyed that Trangia burner..... was there any insulation in it?

thanks Oops. i thought they might. they have always felt just a bit heavier to me than what they should, given the amount of metal in my hand.

Thanks for the information Daren.

No insulation in the trangia. There is a wick material in it. I'll try to find the thread that shows the photo of it.

In the interest of scienstovetology, one perfectly good trangia stove bites the dust. :twisted: Hope it was the military one. :lol: Other than in a trangia stove, where does one find that wicking material, Zelph :?:

It became wickatized, didn't bite the dust. :mrgreen:

The material looks like Linen. I'll try to find the stove and take a closer look at the material. It's in a box with the stove and parts.(somewhere)
