Kerosene Primus “Record” for a long time I had in the garden house. At first I wanted to throw it away, because kerosene is now even in the village rarely to be found, but then changed his mind, decided to move to a more affordable fuel — gasoline.
However, to replace kerosene with gasoline impossible. The first has a high temperature of vaporization, so the burner is at “Record” is arranged so that fuel to the injector is fed from the reservoir directly, and the tube held over the flame of the stove. Here it is vaporized and mixed with air at the exit of the nozzle is ignited.
Gasoline, with its lower temperature of vaporization, the hot tube will instantly boil, resulting in a pressure increase in the tank, an explosion and fire.
To “Record” worked reliably and safely, needed a new burner. Its parts I machined out of steel (but can be made of brass). Cap and the reflector in the bell housing lying loosely, without attachment; they are easy to remove if you need to clean the nozzle. The latter prevents clogging twisted into a roll chicken wire metal mesh (mount — a drop of solder POS-60).
