Wow ! Quite the response ! I figured some of you would respond as such... sigh....
Here we go!
1: Lindal valve handles well in excess of 250 PSI
2: Commercial cylinders are rated to more than three times of their actual filled pressures.
3: Cans are "steel" not "aluminium "pop cans" (Where do you come up with this stuff ?)
4: Ever see small cans of Propane retailed under the names "Ultra Blue" or "Bernzomatic" ?
Also small, relatively thin-walled steel cans with similar pressure ratings and lindal
valves. Funny, their marketing was not met with similar hysterical rants...
Also comply with all Transport Canada and Industry Canada safety standards.
5: Pure Propane has been marketed in Europe for several decades....
6: MATT: Where do I start ? First, refrain from the profanity, will you ? How old are you anyway ? Second, Actually not running "automotive" propane; it is quite pure. Do you even know what you are talking about ? Third, I could show you some JPEGs of the refueling valve assembly, temp measuring equipment, etc. but I'm sure that would get you even more hysterical. Ever consider switching to decaf ?
7: PACKRAT: Actually, ANY fuel can (liquid, propane, butane, kerosene, etc) can explode if too hot or valve leaks. What is your point ? Avoid ANY flammable fuel ?
And actually, the stove does not run poorly on propane. Runs very well at -37C and at altitudes. And where did you get the phrase "to save a few bucks" ? I never mentioned that at all. This fuel is being used to allow for safe, reliable usage of a cannister stove at typical Canadian winter temps; temps that render Butane unusable.
Regards, and try to keep it civil, will you? I thought this forum was for adults....
