 Sonnenbrenner Lamp Chimneys

I have been fortunate to find a few Sonnenbrenner lamp chimneys made from borosilicate glass.  These chimneys were made to exacting specifications from molds using original chimneys.

The burner: These burners are unusual in that they have two wicks..... a transport wick and a burn wick. The transport wick is really a good idea as it is really loosely woven and has great capillary action. It doesn't get used up by the burner. The burner will give you a full flame until the tank runs out of fuel. It is kind of impressive when you actually get a burner with a 2 wick system.

The burner is a side draft burner with a tiny flame spreader. It sits right in the spot where the chimney becomes narrower. It makes the flame burn nice and bright.

Manufactured by Ditmar. The Sonnenbrenner has a big thread that doesn't fit standard European tanks. However, the Gebrudder Brunner is also made by Ditmar and is almost the same as the Sonnenbrenner. It has a standard thread and will fit European tanks.

Above, a Ditmar Soleil 15''' burner showing the parts without being covered with one of the two wicks.  The burning wick is only 1.5'' long and 0.055'' thick and held in place by the 4 petals shown in the photo above right. The capillary feed wick extends up to the base of the burning wick and is covered by the outer wick tube, shown in the lower middle of the photo above left.  Click photos to enlarge.
