The ultra-light gas burner BRS-3000T Hornet was launched back in 2012. But it is still one of the lightest and most compact tourist gas burners. This burner works from standard threaded gas cylinders epi-gas at 110, 230 and 450 grams.
Ultra-light gas burner BRS-3000T Hornet, appearance, device, description and specifications, general impressions, overview.
Structurally, the gas burner BRS-3000T Hornet is generally standard and does not differ from other tourist burners of a similar shape and purpose. It consists of:
Three folding supports. They are fixed in the unfolded position.
Enclosures with 18 mm steel flame arrester.
Shut-off unit with valve, metering nozzle and rubber sealing ring.
Gas supply regulator with folding handle.
Key Features of the BRS-3000T Ultra-Light Gas Burner.
Power: 2700 watts
The boiling time declared by the manufacturer of one liter of water: 2 minutes 58 seconds
Gas consumption: 140 grams per hour or 2.4 grams per minute
Folded Size: 52×37 mm.
Unfolded Size: 81.8×60.3 mm.
Declared weight: 25 grams
The gas burner BRS-3000T comes in a bright green nylon case. Workmanship is above average. The design is collapsible, fully serviced. The supports are made of titanium alloy, the body and flame divider are made of steel, and the locking unit is made of aluminum alloy. As a result of the control weighing, the weight indicated by the manufacturer of 25 grams was not confirmed. We got 30 grams.
A stiffener is stamped on the burner supports. This generally increases its carrying capacity. The supports themselves in the unfolded position are quite rigidly fixed. Looking at the original form of the divider, at first it was assumed that a kind of flame protection of the flame was made this way. However, in addition to the beautiful twisting of the flame flow during operation, no more special advantages were found for the divider of this shape.
General gas burner experience BRS-3000T Hornet.
During operation, the BRS-3000T Hornet burner burns with a steady, steady flame. The flame itself is regulated very smoothly and in a wide range. Tests of the gas burner BRS-3000T Hornet showed that the boiling time of one liter of water in a stainless steel pot with a lid and wind protection is 4 minutes 10 seconds. The initial temperature of the water and the surrounding air was plus 15 degrees.
This time is quite different from the one declared by the manufacturer. However, it is quite acceptable and is at the level of other burners of similar power. The gas burner BRS-3000T Hornet works well with round pots, pans and kettles up to 2, maximum 2.5 liters. In principle, it will also cope with large volumes, but gas consumption will increase significantly. The small diameter of the flame divider plays its role.
The burner is especially convenient when working with mugs of 0.3-0.6 liters and small pots up to 1 liter. On a gas burner, the BRS-3000T Hornet will also be very convenient to heat porridge and stew in cans. There are some difficulties with army flat bowlers. They are very unstable on this burner. Plus, due to the shape of the bottom of such pots, the performance of the burner greatly decreases and gas consumption increases.
However, in any case, despite the shape and capacity of the dishes, the BRS-3000T Hornet burner always requires at least some protection from the wind. In addition, the use of a special stand for a gas bottle will not be out of place. For example, such as Jetboil Can Stabilizer.
Such a stand weighs only 27 grams, is suitable for all standard threaded gas cylinders of 110, 230 and 450 ml. Folds compactly and does not take up much space. This stand holds the gas bottle securely on virtually any uneven surface. Thus, the likelihood that the entire structure from the dishes, burner and cylinder will turn over during cooking or boiling water tends to zero.

General conclusion on a gas torch of BRS-3000T Hornet.
The shape of the BRS-3000T Hornet burner is designed to take up as little space as possible when folded. As a result, it can be safely placed in a recess at the bottom of a threaded gas cylinder of 110, 230 and 450 grams, or inside a small folding Wildo Fold-A-Cup mug of 250 ml.
At present, the BRS-3000T Hornet gas burner is used as part of a lightweight camping cookware set independently based on a Tomshoo 750 ml titanium pot.
At the moment, the BRS-3000T is indeed one of the lightest tourist gas burners on the market. Unlike similar gas burners of other manufacturers, including eminent ones, the gas burner BRS-3000T is quite democratic in price. Only 16-19 US dollars, depending on where to buy and what will be the cost of delivery.
