Q & A
Q. There are two or three ‘flags’. I get that the solid one is for snuffing the flame but not sure about the second one with the hole in the center. It seems to tame the flame a bit but the arm sticking out of the glass doesn't make sense. Is the unit intended to be operated with the hole flag in place?
A. The flags with Holes are to lower the flame. The reason for the arm is so that you can insert the snuffer without coming close to the fire. Again Snuffers with holes make the flame smaller.
Q. Also, the IPA (isopropyl alcohol) we had at the house is 70%. I think IPA can be bought at 99% . Do you recommend one over the other?
A. 70% is fine and is usually costs less, anywhere from $1.50 to $.89 cents a quart. 99% can be more expensive and doesn't burn any better. However, you could switch to denaturized alcohol for your Vortexed55 and the flame will burn blue. Denaturized alcohol is available at Home Depot or Lowes for about $15.00 a gallon.
Q. Finally, how much alcohol should go the fuel container? Is there a level that should be maintained for optimum performance?
A. Typically filling the container about 80% is best. After a few burns, there will be water/hydrogen at the bottom of the cup, dispose of it. It will not burn.
- For older models - having a good pair of leather gloves to handle the reservoir cup when removing it is advisable.
- Keep a flat piece of stone, marble or any heat resistant shield between your Vortexed55 and the table surface.
- For tall and older models, Vortexed55's, using a pair of pliers to lift and lower the reservoir cup makes the job a lot easier, especially when re-inserting a full cup.
- ALWAYS make sure the fire is completely OUT before handling the reservoir cup.
- NEVER pour any flammable liquid onto a flame. Even vapors can ignite and create a very dangerous situation.
