How to delete sterno cans

Like Sterno Fuel Before

Sterno is a gel fuel that glows can create a temporary source of heat. Sterno usually comes in small, flat tins, such as those used for tuna and cat food. A wick is lit inside the can and the flame is placed under an aluminum pan or tray to heat or warm food. You can mix your own sterno fuel with paraffin wax or gelled denatured ethanol, and you can create your own sterno containers as well. What you need Old pot
Paraffin brick
Metal stirrer
denatured ethanol
Calcium carbonate (eggshells / chalk)
glass bowl
Filter paper of 2 inch cotton thread
Steel paper clip Clean cat food or tuna can
Paraffin wax fuel

  1. Put the saucepan on the stove and turn the stove on too high.

  2. Add the blocks of paraffin wax to the pot.

  3. Mix occasionally with the metal beater until the wax has melted.

  4. Reduce the heat too low. Add 5-25%, by volume, denatured ethanol. The more ethanol added, the faster and hotter the fuel will burn. You need to use 100% (200 solid) ethanol, since 95.5% (192 solid) ethanol won't mix well with the wax.

  5. Mix the the ethanol and wax together until it is homogeneous.
    gelled ethanol fuel

    1. Combine about 25 grams of calcium carbonate and 100 milliliters of vinegar in a small bowl.

    2. Mix with the stir stick until no more bubbles form. Add a little more calcium carbonate and mix again.

    3. Pour the mixture through the filter paper into the old saucepan to remove excess calcium carbonate.

    4. Put the pot on the stove. Heat to medium to cook half of the solution.

    5. Add 30 ml of ethanol and stir to mix completely.
      Making the can

      1. Tie the end of the piece of thread of the center from the paper clip.

      2. Place the paper clip on the bottom of the can while the other end of the yarn is holding straight up.

      3. Pour the fuel into the can.

      4. Allow the hot wax to cool completely or the gelled ethanol to solidify completely before using the.
