BELL BACKBURNER / DRIP TORCH - AUSTRALIAN MADE QUALITY FOR EFFECTIVE BUSH FIRE PREVENTION
A controlled burning “drip torch” with a lightweight aluminum fuel tank coupled to a heavy duty steel wick stem. Fuel flow is via a brass control valve located at the tank end of the wick stem.
The Backburner operator has complete control of fuel flow from the wick end via the lever handle which will not allow fuel flow unless depressed by the operator. In a “man down” – loss of control type situation, the burning torch cannot continue to supply fuel to the burning wick end unlike most standard valve control burning torches.
The BACKBURNER design incorporates an “open hook” style of handle, which enables the torch to be hooked over the drop side of a vehicle to facilitate two-handed ease of pouring fuel into the fuel tank via the integral funnel incorporated into the base. This method of filling also eliminates ingress of sand and dirt to the fuel-soaked wick.
