Zalph Stoves Starlyte in Caldera Cone/Ti-Tri on 01/17/2013 01:31:46 MST Print View

Greetings!

I've read the thread here about using the Starlyte in Caldera Cone. Zelphs Stoves now make Starlyte burner especially for the CC: http://www.woodgaz-stove.com/starlyte-burner-with-lid.php

Does anybody know what the exact height from ground is needed for pot to make this combo most efficient?

Is there anyone who tried this exact stove?

Thanks!

Greg.

Make sure you head to the beginning of this thread...Dan Durston kicks it off with his quest.
There's some great ideas and info, as well as what others have done (including me) who followed suit.

There's also this thread (scroll down to bottom of pg 1 and pg 2) with quite a bit of discussion including pot height:

In short, somewhere around 1.8-2.0" off the ground seems ideal, but it's likely affected a bit by the volume of your cone, width of your pot and number of air holes. Wide pots may do best around 2.0", while narrow pots should be around 1.8" it seems.

Thank you guys, my pot is a 1.3L Evernew Ti pot and I'll keep it 2" above the ground.
How the new StarLyte stove compares to 10-12 in terms of efficiency? I suppose it's the same according to what I saw in that posts.
