Ignites reliably and everywhere
No matter whether on a climbing tour in the mountains, hiking in the forest or camping in the wilderness: With the Petromax fire piston you can ignite a warming fire and stove in any environment. As an ignition source that is independent of the weather and energy, it is your loyal helper who supports you in making your own fire. Less than a hand's length, the Petromax fire plunger fits easily into any luggage and thus provides the ignition spark for your adventures.
In the well-designed fire plunger, a method of igniting fire that has been tried and tested for centuries is cleverly combined. The traditional way of igniting tinder in a hollow cylinder by means of air pressure compression was already known to primitive peoples. This technology is revived in the form of the Petromax fire piston and is as simple as it is effective: The piston head is fitted with scale and then suddenly pressed into the piston sleeve. The resulting air pressure and the resulting heat of up to 400 ° C ignite the tinder and thus a prepared ember nest or a prepared fireplace - without electricity, lighter or other aids. As an additional ignition alternative, you will find a stick flint stowed inside the flask, which guarantees a spark-flying fire start.
Everything in one hand
The high-quality black anodized Petromax fire piston consists of a piston and a piston sleeve. The scale and the lubricant for a smooth ignition process can be found in the respective storage containers at the ends. These are well secured with screw caps. Unscrew the tinder container on the piston and you can remove the flint bar that has also been placed there. The fire piston itself is stowed in a suitable transport bag to save space. This guarantees that nothing is lost and the Petromax fire piston is ideally prepared for multiple ignitions.
