little buddy heater

5 posts in this topic

When I remove a propane tank from it after it has died down (run out of propane) If it is cold out when i take the propane off usually propane starts pouring out of it. Makes me a little nervous especially when i am in my fishtrap with a lantern going. It come out so fast i have to toss it outside my shack and then just pick it up when i am ready to go home. Any way I can stop this?

Same thing happened to me this past weekend. I think it has to do with the 1 lb. cylinder being too cold and the propane "gelling up". Not sure though- anybody else?
It seems like if I keep the cylinders inside I don't have any problems. That'd be what I suggest.

In very cold its hard to run 1 lb bottles dry because the pressure in the tank isn't enough to push through the orifice. Not only will the heater not burn hot toward the end of the tank its also burns dirty. Theses IR heaters are designed to burn efficiently above a certain temp.
How do you minimize any risks of propane blowing out when changing tanks? Never change any propane bottles inside an enclosure.

Get yourself a 5 lb. tank and the adapter hose. Better fittings, better valves and less chance of blowing the lid off your house (and the skin off your face). I've personally had too many instances of those 1 lb. cylinders leaking to be comfortable using them.

Another benefit is that the heater seems to burn hotter, longer. Others have explained this as a result of greater pressure in the 5lbers. All I know is that it's a huge deal when it's super cold.

Just my $.02.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
