Hot Hot 635 Canadian

#1

Post by 1freshfind »

I just got a Canadian 635 lantern that is really hot. My first 635.
It is a 1971 Canadian white gas with green vent and silver (nickel?) fount.
I am running a 500cp mantle and it is Super bright but this thing is the devil hot.
Wide open is is hotter than the 639 and the 249 I have. The vent still looks good It looks but I don't think it was ran too much. The burn seems proper and steady with no overburn. Sounds nice and I can adjust it down easily.
Maybe wide open is letting out more than it should be? Generator tip too big?
I can't carry it across my yard without turning it way down. Is this normal? I love the light it puts out but it s eems a bit dangerous. Thanks for any info

William, try some early 1960's 200a's - they can melt the valve knob. Even 242's ran so hot they burned up vents after some hard use.

You may get used to it. Then again, maybe a helpful member here will offer to take it off your hands.

Yeah. Too hot for my liking. Super bright though. Maybe I'll list it.

Does that lantern call for such a big mantle? I stopped using larger mantles on my 200A's when I felt how much hotter the lantern got. I don't even use the 2C-HG because of being noticeably larger than the #21's.

Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?

Mantle size doesn't change the orifice. Amount of fuel burned = heat, and unless you change the jet, changing the mantle won't make a difference.

A larger mantle hangs lower in the frame. Admittedly, I'm referencing the collar and the fount for increased heat there, and not the vent.
