The Petromax HK500 is among the most famous lamps in the world. Thanks to its impressive light output of 500 CP, the lamp combines a unique technique with an elegant design. Since the Petromax high pressure lamp was invented in 1910, its spellbinding brightness gives light to the darkness.
A weatherproof and reliable lamp With its bright light, the robust pressure lamp not only fascinates retro design lovers, globetrotters and outdoor enthusiasts, but is also used by humanitarian aid organizations and armed forces. Thanks to its temperature-resistant borosilicate glass, which is manufactured by the company Schott, the lamp is a reliable light source that can be used in all weathers.
A unique high pressure technology The excellent light output of the Petromax lamp results from a simple, yet fascinating principle: The kerosene under pressure is conducted into a carburetor, where the evaporated fuel reacts to the mantle impregnated with luminous salt, which results in a bright, warm light. For this principle to work flawlessly, the more than 200 pieces of the lamp are still assembled by hand.
The right accessory for each situationBesides various reflectors, and storage and transport bags, many other accessories are suitable for Petromax lamps. For example, they can be turned into a stove or a radiator. Thanks to this vast range of high-quality accessories, the Petromax lamp can be personalized.
Note: Recommended for outdoor use only.
