Who doesn’t dream of a hot meal at the end of a long day of hiking? Because the stoves today are responsible for real miracles–are “Pocket stoves“, efficient, very hot (with a large heat capacity), practical and small. If you do long walks, with all-cargo bags that last several days in isolated places or camp very often but always on the side of the car, you need a stove. If you go to cold regions, where it is necessary to melt snow or doesn’t want anything technical like that but so have small children who will be around in time to handle the equipment, you need a–good–stove.
Confused? Because there’s more… There are several types of stoves on the market and not all use the same fuel. Benzine, alcohol and gasoline are easily found anywhere in Brazil. Plus, it’s more “ecological“, does it generate a gas cartridge empty at the end of use. Kerosene can also be found almost anywhere – being agood solution for expeditions around the world, traveling abroad frequently. If this is not your case and you intend to, at most, take a trip to Patagonia, do the Camino de Santiago or Machu Picchu, as well as run by Brazil, we have the solution of better cost-benefit of the market. Check out our tips:
Types of Stoves:
1. Espiriteiras – they are very cheap (are, without a doubt, the cheaper models on the market!), are tiny and work well. Use hydrated alcohol.
2. LPG – are also very cheap but the calorific value is less than the “multifuel“. Work very well in temperatures that we have in Brazil. Do not serve to altitude.
3. “Multifuel“ – are the more expensive stoves on the market, but usually last a long time and be very efficient. Usually come accompanied by the bottles suitable for fuel and should only be used with this type of container. If you go to the ice, buy also the basis for putting down the burner, because the ice where the stove is supported just melting in the heat, making your work.
Some types of liquid fuels:
1. Any stove to be used with liquid fuel burning benzene (“white gas“). This fuel is often sold as “fuel“ camping (camping fuel) or “stove fuel“ (stove fuel), under several different brands. He tends to evaporate easily and cleanly. It is very volatile and must be used very carefully. Is our benzine rectified.
2. Hobs “multifuel“ accept almost any type of fuel such as kerosene, diesel, gasoline, benzene rectified (is the cleaner fuel that exists. In Spanish speaking countries in South America, we found something called “Benzine Blanca“, but not as clean and pure as the benzene rectified) etc. However, some fuels are very “dirty” and end up compromising the performance of the equipment. Anything that an occasional cleaning, more frequent than usual, wouldn’t fix. As they use their ownbottles, filled at the time of use, rather than disposable cartridges, are lighter, cheaper during use (product, itself, is more expensive) and more “environmentally friendly“. The use of it requires that they be “pumped” to give pressure inside the bottle, be heated before use and need frequent care – especially when you burn fuels such as kerosene. Are the most popular rings for frequent users, great expeditions and climbers. Kerosene is usually easy to find in many parts of the world (more than the other types of fuel). However, requires alcohol or other agent is used to start the burn. Let your stove probably greasy, all black and smells like… kerosene! But it is also very economical and safer than the benzene, not as volatile.
3. LPG (Liquidified Petroleum Gas) – is the generic term for fuels like butane, isobutane and propane, that are packaged and sold in a pressurized metal container (cartridge), easily findable in industrialized countries. With just a valve being responsible for the opening of the system, it is easy to maintain. Are very convenient to use – light and works well! Are popular among casual users, rowers, short trips and summer hikers. The cartridge adds cost, weight and trash the environment, if not properly recycled. And, remember, if you can load the full cartridge to the environment, you can also bring it back empty.
4. Alcohol – can be used as solid liquid, gel, depending on the stove used.
