Complete set in its stowed configuration. Set shown is the 25-1, but
the 27-1 HA stowes in the same manner.
The heart of the storm-proof stove system is the two-part windshield.
The ventilation holes in the lower windshield are directed into the wind
to increase the oxygen supply to the burner. When the wind becomes too
strong, the stove is turned to maintain the required flame.
The stove stands stable, with the pan on the supports recessed into
the upper windshield. The supports are turned upwards when the frypan
is used. The combined frypan/lid can be put on top of the pan to speed
up heating and save fuel as in the diagram at right.
The Trangia burner runs on Tenol or methylated spirits (Ethyl alcohol
or Denature alcohol in the U.S.), which are cheap, safe and easily available.
Tenol is cleaner, while methylated spirits have somewhat higher output.
About 10-15% water can be mixed with the methylated spirits to reduce
blackening of the pans. The burner is most efficient when filled to 2/3
capacity. The silent burner has a simple design that means it always
works and does not break. Regardless of the weather, wind and season,
it is easy to light. The Trangia also requires no pumping, simmers superbly,
and is almost immune to mechanical failure.
The spirit burner takes up little space and
weighs less than a gas burner.
The simmering ring is used to regulate the heat, which saves
fuel, and to extinguish the flame.
