Title:
Wheel campfire
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
Wheel Campfire has a removable spring-loaded rolled galvanized pipe with specific sized holes, to allow for propane to flow throughout the pipe; this has been designated as the burner. The burner is then set inside a base which is a steel wheel, and then locked into place. At the end of the burner that is set outside of the wheel, a LP gas hose is attached, which then attaches to a valve, which then attaches to a regulator, which then attaches to a propane tank. The valve is adjustable and can regulate the amount of propane that flows to the burner. Once the adjustable valve is turned on, propane will flow through the hose and burner and escapes through the specific holes in the burner. The consumer can then light the burner with a lighter, which will produce a fire above the burner, which will create a range of flame.
