There is a difference between Gel Burners and Gel Fuel Cans, here we shed some light on the subject.
Gel Burners and Gel Fuel Cans Explained
Gel fuel is a sustainable heat source made from the processing of farm products into alcohol. This then has additives to reduce the alcohol content to around 96%. These additives also stop the possibilities of someone drinking the alcohol.
Online, gel fuel is supplied in either 1 litre bottles or in cans. There are different sizes of can therefore check your dimensions before buying.
The litre bottles can be used to add fuel to a gel burner and to refill the cans but this should be done with caution as the can will deteriorate with each use.
Gel Cans and Gel Burners?
A gel burner is supplied by a manufacturer with a reservoir for the fuel to be added and then burnt.
A gel fuel can is used in a product that does not have a reservoir for the fuel. One application like this is a unit which is used to keep food warm in a restaurant etc however there are also some gel fireplaces which need cans.
