Preparing the X-Treme PC-1000 Gas Burner for Operation.
It does not present any particular difficulties. It is enough to set apart the folding stops around the comfort and the legs on the underside of the burner. If prior to this experience there was no use of collet gas cylinders, then an attempt to first attach it to the burner may bring some inconvenience. In the future, after studying the algorithm, this will be easy and simple..
The diameter of the connected collet gas cylinder is slightly smaller than the total height of the X-Treme PC-1000 burner, so it is advisable to put some kind of stop under it so that it is not on weight. Finding a gas cylinder on weight does not interfere with the operation of the burner, but if you remove heavy dishes with water from it, it immediately bends in its direction.
Next, open the gas supply and set it on fire. Ignition of the gas can be done using a lighter, matches or built-in piezo ignition, as you wish. Swivel handle with plastic nozzle for very smooth flame control.
Impressions of the gas torch X-Treme PC-1000.
Despite the Chinese origin and the very low price of $ 4, there were no particular complaints about the build quality of the X-Treme PC-1000 burner. All connections accessible from the outside were tight. There is no gas etching at the junction of the gas collet. Piezo ignition works fine and ignites gas the first time.
However, according to some reviews of this gas burner, there are instances of it that require drawing out all the connections before starting work and possibly sealing them with a high-temperature sealant. In any case, it is advisable to pre-check the build quality of this burner before starting its operation.
On some X-Treme PC-1000 burners, the collet gas connection port may initially not fit the Kovea collet cylinder flange, due to unnecessarily bent mounting tabs. Therefore, in the case of using Kovea gas cylinders, you may have to slightly bend the upper and lower tabs on the flange to ensure normal connection of the cylinder manufactured by this company.
But in general, the X-Treme PC-1000 made a mostly positive impression. This is a good and very low-cost gas burner, which is quite suitable for boiling water, heating food or preparing simple dishes for breakfast, lunch or dinner on short trips, on a picnic, hunting or fishing. And also as a backup or auxiliary, when deploying a large camping gas burner for work does not make sense or conditions do not allow.
