The titanium windshield is made to suit both the stove and the Stormin’ Stove Systems 750 ml titanium pot, with a removable handle. This pot is unique and designed by me as a Solo use pot for rehydration of dried food, boiling water, and a drinking/eating vessel. When used in conjunction with my made to measure pot cosy, it is ideal for heat retention of re-hydrated homemade or commercial dried meals.
The windshield is also configured for use with my alcohol stoves and burners, with the addition of a baseplate and Eassy potstand, no other parts are required.
Assembly is straightforward. View the instructional video here.
Final development video.
First remove all parts from the pot.
The silicone band around the pot is in a pre-determined position, to a line marked around the pot circumference, 40 mm. above the pot base. another line marked at 50 mm. can also be utilised.
The 40mm. line is for use in windy conditions, use at ground level in a ventilated area. the open vestibule of your shelter must have a clearance of at least 600mm. above and around the stove and windshield. The windshield is not necessary in calm conditions, but used at the 50mm setting will reduce boil time significantly. Remember not to use the canister gas stove in any confined space, carbon monoxide can kill.
Do NOT open the canister stove valve to maximum when used in conjunction with the windshield. One full turn is sufficient to generate enough heat for maximum efficiency and minimum fuel consumption.
To assemble the windshield. match the two black dots on the opposing tabs and slide vertically together. Next, take the three titanium hooked strips, and locate each one of the folded hooked ends behind the silicone band on the pot, over the black marked dots.
Now feed all the fixed strips and pot into the windshield. Make sure that one of the strips is located opposite the hole in the top of the windshield, and the others will then be in positions to prevent fouling the standoff studs. Take each titanium strip and clip the lower hook to the windshield lower edge. The titanium strips are annealed and will not break if frequently folded/unfolded.
The pot and windshield are now in a fixed position for use with either the gas canister stove, or alcohol/solid fuel, when used with a Eassy potstand.
Set your assembled stove on a level, even surface. With the black, woven carbon material heat deflector in place, on top of the gas canister. Check the stability with a loaded pot on the stove. Turn on the gas valve and ignite the burner. Place the pot/windshield combination on the stove supports and adjust the gas flow as instructed.
If using in conjunction with the cosy, lift the pot from the heat source by the handle, un-clip the lower hooks and slide off the windshield. set the pot on an even surface and release the titanium strips from behind the silicone band. Lift up the pot by the handle and slide into the cosy until it is level with the top of the silicone band, grip the cosy and pot together, release the handle, and let the pot slide fully into the cosy.
