Adjustment of a flame

Here below are explanations for adjusting appropriate flame height

Butane Gas Lighter

Flame height can be adjusted by turning adjuster screw or adjuster lever to (+) high for a long flame or to (-) low for a short flame.
The flame height of all Sarome lighters is pre-set for reliable use. An adjuster stopper is installed to prevent turning flame adjuster beyond the preset maximum and minimum.
Do not adjust flame height frequently after setting the adjuster properly. Refill lighter when flame height decreases as mostly due to low gas.
Always ignite electronic and turbo lighters slowly to avoid misfire.
For safety, we recommend to set flame height for flint and electronic lighters at 2cm-3cm long.

Locations of flame height adjuster may vary,
on lighter bottom as shown in left or on top as shown in right

Turbo Lighter

A Turbo lighter has an internal gas combustion system which turns gas energy to heat power to generate a complete gas burning, results in a high temperature, blue flame which is difficult to recognize in daylight. Precautions are required to handle.

Most of turbo lighter either has a metal mesh or a catalyzed coil installed on top of burner cylinder. When a flame is generated, these parts become red. The catalyzed coil heats up quickly and retains heat to re-ignite butane gas coming from tank even though flame is blow out.
A flame adjustment should be made according to the incandescence condition of metal mesh or catalyzed coil. See photos at right.
Never touch or remove the metal mesh or the catalyzed coil with a cigarette, fingers, screw driver or object.

Oil lighter

When wick becomes short, pull it up with pliers and adjust to necessary length.
When wick is too long, more than required, flame becomes high and it is dangerous.
Lighter has a short flame or is difficult to ignite when wick becomes black from carbon. Pull wick up by 5mm and cut it with scissors. It is dangerous when wick is too long than required.
