About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Jetboil cold weather heat exchanger

Re: Re: Re: Canister Pressure vs. Atmospheric Pressure for Canister Stoves
The pressure in the canister has to be greater than atmospheric in order to force enough gas through the stove jet to produce a reasonable size of flame. I reckon you need about 0.5 Bar (7 psig) as...
