Directions Of Use

Mixing:

Recommended Fuel Mixes:

There are two recommended flammable liquids to use in the Pacific Fire Lighter.

25% unleaded petrol and 75% diesel.

  • This recommended fuel mix is, one part petrol to three parts diesel.
  • Ensure that the mixture of petrol into the diesel is through and the appropriate proportion of petrol is to be added to the appropriate portion of diesel.
  • The fuel mixture can be tested; a small quantity of fuel on a rag can be taken to a safe location and lit with a match.
  • It should ignite easily and burn steadily – vapor should not detonate or the fuel burn violently (incorrect fuel mix – too much petrol).
  • It is not appropriate to mix this fuel in the tank of a Pacific Fire Lighter. Fill by measured volume, maximum 4.5 litres, do not guess the quantities. 

100% Kerosene

  • This is a suitable alternative; however kerosene may not be readily available in all areas.
  • As it does not require mixing, this is a simpler operation.
  • Kerosene does have a higher flash point and lower vapor pressure than petrol so when straight kerosene is used there is less chance of fumes detonating.
  • An approved fuel container should be used for mixing, transport and storage. Take care to prevent fuel spills, use funnel with strainer in place. 

Mixing Fuel:

  • Mix fuel in a separate container to the torch tank. 
  • Use all mixed fuel before mixing a further batch. 
  • Do not add to an existing part mix of fuel as quantities can be easily miscalculated, making it difficult to keep the torch alight or dangerous if too much petrol is used.

Filling Drip Torch:

  • Remove the bung and insert funnel with strainer in place into the tank. 
  • Fill to within 30mm opening, replace bung and tighten.

Lighting Drip Torch:

In an area where Pacific Fire Lighter is to be used;

  • Point nozzle to the ground at approximately 30 to 35 degrees.
  • Open valve at the base of the wand, allowing fuel to run onto the wick then onto litter or vegetation on the ground. 
  • Ignite fuel and dampened litter or vegetation with a match. 
  • Apply the wick to this small fire to light the Pacific Fire Lighter.

To relight the Pacific Fire Lighter during use (with nozzle pointing downwards and fuel dribbles over the wick) place the wick over a fire. 

Extinguishing Drip Torch:

  • To extinguish a Pacific Fire Lighter, smother the wick in loose earth, or leave it standing upright and the wick will burn dry.

Operating the Pacific Fire Lighter:

  • Ensure sufficient fuel for carrying out a burning operation is on hand in containers readily available for refueling torches as required.
  • Carry the torch to the area where burning is to commence, unscrew the bleed screw one to two turns counter clockwise (allowing air into the tank replacing fuel being used).
  • Open valve at base of wand, lower want assembly towards the ground until fuel runs over the wick and onto vegetation on the ground.
  • Light the vegetation on the ground, apply the wick to the vegetation, the torch is now ready for use.
  • Do not leave a burning torch unattended.

Before operation, carefully read Directions for Use, Precautionary and Protection Statements, Storage and Disposal, Safety Directions and First Aid Instructions.

Tips For Use

General Information About Lighting Fires

  • The Pacific Fire Lighter is designed to efficiently light fires in the open, in vegetation and forest litter (class A fuels).
  • Apart from the specific instruction of how to use a Pacific Fire Lighter and the general requirements for flammable liquids, users should follow all agency or employer instructions for use  and work practices.
  • Handling flammable liquids and lighting fires in some vegetation types requires formal qualifications and needs to be closely supervised by an experienced person.
  • Even with due care and attention to safety, lighting fires under some circumstances is not without risks.
  • The risk increases where vegetation gets drier, thicker, more difficult to walk through or when visibility is reduced. Walking through rough or remote terrain in smoke or poor visibility with burning vegetation is generally a very high risk.
  • When lighting fires in vegetation it is not a good idea to work alone.
  • Always have a buddy, work out an escape route should the fire you light spread faster or cut off the path you intended to light alone.
  • Fires you light may unexpectedly become hazardous to yourself and others. Be prepared to take evasive action.
  • Plan how to light the target area and also plan how to control or extinguish any fires you light.
  • Spotting or Fires Caused by Firebrands May Be of Additional Concern in Some Types of Vegetation.

Checks Prior to Refueling

  • Select a safe refueling area, which could be a large open area, clear off vegetation and dry litter.
  • No naked flames, sparks, radio, mobile phones, electrical equipment or smoking within 10 meters during refueling.
  • All vehicles or internal combustion engines in the general area and any electrical accessories must be switched off during refueling.
  • Where there is any doubt about the correct fuel mixture do not use it.
  • Remix a fresh batch of recommended mixture.
  • Do not attempt to directly decant unmixed fuel into the fuel tank or to mix petrol and diesel fuel in the fuel tank. Petrol and diesel must be mixed in an approved, labeled container in sufficient quantity to complete the planned burning operation.
  • Shake or agitate the bulk fuel container prior to decanting, to mix thoroughly.
  • To confirm the batch of fuel is safe to use, soak a small piece of rag (5cm x 10cm) with a sample of the bulk fuel mix (5ml) and take it away from the refueling area to test light it using a stick to hold the rag.
  • The sample should readily ignite and burn steadily, but not flash over and flare.
  • Where there is a risk of static electricity, correctly bond and earth bulk container prior to decanting.
  • Any sealed container that may have been exposed to heat must be opened carefully.
  • Place the fuel container on the ground with the cap at the highest point and slowly release any pressure, avoid spilling or spraying fuel.
