Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0703409A1] An LPG burning appliance has a body (10) with connection means (30,82) for releasably connecting the body to a fuel canister (36). The body (10) has a fuel inlet (48) and a burner assembly (12). The burner assembly (12) has an outlet jet (26) secured to the body (10) and a fuel flow passage extends from the fuel inlet (48) to the fuel outlet jet (26). The fuel flow passage includes a fuel flow conduit (14) both ends of which are secured to the body (10) and which extends through a flame zone of the burner assembly (12), thereby providing a fuel flow path which constrains all fuel from the canister (36) to pass from the body inlet (48) to a flame zone of the burner assembly (12) and back to the fuel outlet jet (26). The body (10) further comprises a control valve (50) which is advantageously located between the fuel inlet (48) and the inlet to the fuel flow conduit (14). <IMAGE>
