    Peter I've measured the diameter of the base and the height of the burner without lid, so add a mm for that both ways for maximum dimensions.

    Is it that crucial? They all perform pretty similarly really.

    The commonest issue, I find, is too small a flame gap. But there is some leeway. Do you think it could be that?

    What are you using these days? If I recall you changed from a flat cat?

    Housing /roofing/pipe lagging insulation (rarely used around industrial pipes these days... But used to be a thing I had to remove in my demo years)

    Looks quite low. I guess you use a silicone band on the pot to set the height? Try moving the band lower to increase the flame gap.

    Yes,I’m sure pot too stove hieght was meant to be 23-25 mm ? But can’t remember ,but I’m wondering if I’ve mixed burners up and this one I’m using now is too wide ? ..I’m trying to boil 700 ml with 15 ml of Bio fuel
