HOW IT WORKS
In a cold blast lantern, fresh air circulates between the inside and the outside of the chimney and is warmed up through the pipe system. Fresh air goes through the side pieces, arrives in the burner and supplies the flame with enough oxygen for the combustion. The hot air from the combustion escapes from the chimney.
HOW TO FILL WITH FUEL
Open the tank lid and fill the fuel tank with paraffin. Fill to just under the level of the fuel inlet. Before using the wick needs to soak in the fuel. Wait for 10 minutes to allow the fuel to soak into the wick.
LIGHTING THE LANTERN
Lift the glass globe by pressing down on the lever on the left side of the lantern and hookit in the provided notch. Light the wick, which should stick out of the burner by 1 or 2mm, with a lighter or a match. As soon as the wick starts to burns, slowly put the glass back down using the lever.
ADJUSTING THE WICK
You can adjust the size of the flame by using the rotating knob on the burner.The flame should not flicker or produce soot. The recommended size of the flame is between1.5 & 2 cm. To put out the lantern turn the wick down until the flame goes out. Make sure the flame has fully gone out by extending the wick s again.
Advice: Do not wind the wick in too far.
