Lighters are popular for the cigar smokers but not only have the smokers used the lighters but also for the people who are interested in camping, picnicking and any other activities in the outside the windy environments. Usually, cigar smokers prefer butane torch lighters during the smoke.
A torch lighter is a portable thing that is used for instant flame or fire. It is used for many activities like outside cooking, lightening in the dark area, fishing, and many many activities. Butane torch lighter in an instrument that is worked by utilizing butane creates hot flames.
If you can’t buy a good torch lighter, it can make you in trouble in a serious condition. Suppose you are when you need instant fire and you have a lighter and unfortunately your lighter is not working, just think about that feeling. There are many reasons for not working your torch lighter. If you can identify those, then you can avoid the situation you don’t want. These reasons are described below why torch lighters stop working.
1. INCORRECT BLEEDING
It’s important bleed the lighter correctly because incorrect bleeding can be the reason for not working your lighter properly. You should bleed your lighter when the flame drops and fuel tank about to be empty; the fire is not frequent. During the bleed, turn off the gas valve, position the light up a stand that the port is facing the floor, then put a small screwdriver into the port and press. Keep the pressure until the hissing sound stops. Then continue pressing for a few more seconds for making sure escape the air.
2. NON-PREMIUM FUEL
The quality of your fuel is very much dependent on the quality of your lighter. If you don’t put premium fuel to your lighter, it will affect your lighter. Non-premium fuel can cause longevity and work. If you are not skimped about the fuel, then your lighter will work properly. Inexpensive fuel or butane is poorly refined or not adequately refined, which is very harmful for the torch because it contains microscopic impurities. The port of torch is tiny that’s why it can create a focused flame and the impurities refined can block and once it blocked, it is very much difficult to unblock them. You should continue with better fuel or butane.
Your lighter can be malfunctioned if you refill your lighter incorrectly. Incorrect refill sometimes means the air will insert the fuel tank, and it malfunctions the work of a lighter. To avoid this situation, every time you do it by the position of the torch upside down. So during the refilling fuel, be careful. Put the nozzle directly to the gas valve and firmly press it a couple of seconds when you feel that the hissing stops, the tank becomes full stop the press. This is the process of refilling the tank correctly. Know of it.
Altitude problems can occur in butane torch lighters. There are the functions of fuel and air ratios, which are mixtures of different fuel. If you use non-premium fuel, then this altitude problem can occur. When the lighter refilled in a lower altitude and it is operating it, then it is a higher possibility to occur an airlock with a valve. If the partial release of pressure is done with the adjustment valve, then it can unlock the air.
The flame adjustment will be needed if your torch is not working properly, such as the flame too high or too low. Adjust the flame by using the (-), (+) button in front of the torch. If you have fueled inexpensive fuel and bled incorrectly, then it can be the flame change problem.
Lighters are very much important for those people who spend a lot of time outside the home and especially at night. The smokers are required the torch lighters more than the other. Though people can use matches, I think torch lighters is more convenient and portable and also economical than the matches. However, it is very helpful for our many types of activities. So it is also can be a troublemaker if it is not working properly. For making it works properly you have maintained certain things I have described above, if you follow those things and keep maintaining then you will experience a better use of torch lighters.
