Powder-coated red and made of lightweight aluminum alloy, the WATERAX drip torch is designed to withstand the rough treatment that drip torches often endure. The safety loop is well away from the flame so there is no danger of the fuel in the loop (liquid seal) vaporizing from heat. The screw-type vent valve introduces air to the bottom of the tank to relieve the vacuum created as fuel is being used.
The wick is made of inserted fiberglass. The handle provides good balance in any position. 1.2 US gals
