FEUERHAND ATOM Nr. 75 - SUPERFLAM
This model was an export to France and was in very good condition when I received it. With only minor surface rust, it restored very easily. The lantern arrived with a clear etched Atom 75 Globe. I replaced it with one of my red Atom 75 globes.
1928: Introduction of the word mark 'Superflam' for the French market. The word Superflam is either embossed in the tank or on a tank 'badge' name tag holder used.
Notice the special Oelab burner. The black washer was still present but the metal bottom piece which attaches to the wick is gone. With special thanks to J. Stanley, photos were provided above in the gallery of the complete wick/burner setup. **IN THE PHOTOS GALLERY ABOVE, THE FEUERHAND CATALOG EXPLAINS THE FUNCTION OF THE OELAB BURNER. HERE IS THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION TO THAT PAGE THAT IS HIGHLIGHTED WITH A RED BOARDER IN THE GALLERY.**
4. The wick is screwed up by turning the burner key 13 clockwise and slowly, so that the already sucked petroleum can flow back into the container, until
a) tactile resistance also prevents more vigorous turning and
b) at the same time a red dash in the wick is just visible.
To do this, open the lantern, especially with red lanterns, the red control line is otherwise difficult to see.
This red line must be visible, because only then complete, reliable sealing is achieved. It must therefore never be missed to exercise this control.
As soon as the red line is visible, do not forcibly continue to turn, otherwise the mechanism will be damaged.
The other very nice surprise with this lantern was the embossed Feuerhand Logo on the bottom of the fuel tank. To the best of my knowledge, this embossing is only found on the Superflam model.
