What is Butane?
- Butane is a gaseous component of natural gas, much like gasoline is a component of crude oil. While petroleum products like gasoline are refined, natural gas products like butane are extracted. Butane can also be produced from crude oil, but in much smaller quantities. Butane is often added to regular gasoline to boost performance without creating a highly volatile product. Other common uses for butane include refrigeration, heating and fuel for cigarette lighters.
- But first, a quick chemistry lesson may be helpful. Butane's chemical formula is C4H10, which means the butane molecule consists of four carbon atoms surrounded by ten hydrogen atoms to form a straight line. Imagine a four-segment carbon caterpillar with ten hydrogen legs to get a visual idea of a butane chain. This form of the colorless gas is technically called n-butane (the n stands for 'normal'). N-butane has a relative called isobutane, which is used primarily as a replacement for the refrigerant freon in refrigerator systems.
- Butane is one of dozens of gases derived from raw natural gas. It is often combined with propane to form a new product called LPG, or Liquid Propane Gas. This is the bottled gas sold for use in camping stoves and outdoor gas-powered grills. Propane may deliver more energy than butane, but butane has a certain property that makes it ideal for containment. When butane is compressed, it becomes a liquid very quickly. Once it is released into the air, however, it reacts with an ignition source to become a highly flammable gas. Unlike some other natural gas derivatives, butane only releases carbon dioxide as a waste product, not carbon monoxide.
- If you take a close look at a transparent cigarette lighter, you should see evidence of butane in its liquid state. Once the holder depresses a valve, the liquid butane loses its pressure and becomes gaseous again. The flame is similar to a burning candle, because butane is considered a 'paraffin' gas. The liquid form of butane remaining in the lighter is slowly expelled, much like the candle wick only draws enough liquid wax to maintain the flame.
About Butane Lighter Fluid
Butane is a naturally occurring component of natural gas that can be extracted and used for a number of household and industrial purposes. Handymen use butane torches for light soldering and plumbing tasks. Gourmet chefs may use a butane torch to melt the sugar topping on a fancy dessert. Campers often rely on butane to power their camp stoves. But for the nation's 45 million adult smokers, butane is one of the primary fluids they use to light up.
- Identification: Butane lighter fluid is a chemical compound that is made up of four carbon atoms bound together with 10 hydrogen atoms. Its chemical formula is C4H10, and it refers to n-butane, or natural butane, as opposed to isobutane, a slightly different form of the gas that is used primarily as a refrigerant.
- Function: In its natural state, butane is a highly flammable gas. In order to make it suitable for use in a lighter, butane gas is put under pressure where it converts to a liquid state. The butane lighter works by releasing the pressure on the containment compartment, allowing the liquid butane to revert back to its gaseous state. A spark from a lighter ignites the flammable gas, and a control valve provides a continuous flow of butane gas to fuel a flame.
- Benefits: Unlike many other flammable gases that produce carbon monoxide when burned, the byproducts of burned butane are water vapor and carbon dioxide. Butane lighter fluid also does not give off the unpleasant odor commonly associated with lighters that use traditional lighter fluid. Many cigar and pipe smokers prefer butane because of the perception that lighting up with a butane lighter does not flavor the tobacco.
- History: Although the cigar lighter dates back to the early 1800s when Johann Wolfgang Dobereiner introduced his hydrogen-powered version to the world, it was another century before the classic pocket lighter became a ubiquitous part of the consumer landscape. The windproof Zippo lighter, which used Naptha for fuel, became world-famous during World War II as GIs carried the handy device all over the world. Butane lighters, introduced in the 1930s, began to compete with Naptha-based lighters because they didn't require a wick, and they didn't give off the unpleasant odor that Naptha was known for.
- Features: High-end butane lighters can cost several hundred dollars, while the ubiquitous BIC lighter can be bought at the corner convenience store for less than a dollar. Colibri, ST Dupont, Zippo, Lotus, Tonino, Corona and Dunhill are only a few of the major manufacturers that use butane lighter fluid to power their lighters.
Butane Lighter Instructions:
Many of the more decorative lighters that are given as gifts are fueled with butane instead of the more common lighter fluid. Butane is a gas instead of a liquid, so filling the butane lighters is a different type of procedure. Many people are unfamiliar with this type of lighter, but you can refill your butane lighter quickly and safely with just a few steps.
- Wait for your lighter to cool before filling it. If you have recently used the lighter, allow it to sit for at least 5 minutes to allow the gases to cool.
- Turn the flame down to the smallest size. Each lighter is different, but you will have some type of adjustment wheel or screw that controls the size of the flame. Dial this to the smallest end that you have.
- Hold the lighter away from your body. Push a small screwdriver into the filling valve. This will release any air that is trapped in the tank, which would make the lighter malfunction or not work at all. Do this repeatedly until you don't hear any hissing noise coming from the lighter.
- Hold the lighter upside down with the refill valve facing up. Shake the can of butane five times. Place the butane can nozzle over the refill valve and press down on the can. This will allow the gas to move from the can into the lighter's tank. Hold the butane can on the lighter for 5 seconds, then remove the can.
- Lay the lighter in a safe place for 3 to 4 minutes until it returns to room temperature. Flick the lighter to light it when it has warmed up, then adjust the flame to your desired height.
How to Refill a Butane Torch Lighter?
A butane torch lighter is a useful tool to keep handy in a home for easy lighting of candles and grills and other household chores. Proper maintenance is essential for these lighters to continue to operate, however. Refilling also must be done properly for the lighter to continue to work.
If the lighter sparks and fuel can be heard hissing when the igniter button is pressed, the lighter should continue to work after proper refilling.
- Before refilling a butane torch lighter, it is necessary to drain any remaining fuel from the lighter. Using the small screwdriver press the fuel-refilling nozzle to remove the leftover fuel.
- Turn the flame adjustment screw clockwise until it stops to turn off the fuel flow before refueling.
- Point the fuel nozzle up and push the container of fuel into the lighter. Turn the fuel nozzle down and wait while the lighter refills. It is important not to pump the fuel can into the lighter while refueling because this may cause the fuel tank to burst.
- Once the lighter is refilled, allow it to rest until the fuel becomes room temperature. Butane fuel is cold while refilling. It will expand as it gets to room temperature.
- Turn the flame adjustment screw back 1/2 turn counter clockwise. Attempt to light the lighter. If the lighter won't light, turn the adjustment screw another 1/4 turn and try again. Keep adjusting the screw in 1/4 turns until the lighter lights.
How to Fix Your Refillable Butane Torch Lighter?
A torch butane lighter is a little more expensive than a regular one, but it is far more reliable in windy conditions. A quartz piezoelectric starter creates a spark to ignite the flame, and injectors in the tip focus the flame so that it burns hotter and stays lit. Keep it clean to get the best performance, because any dust or ash in the combustion chamber can adversely affect the flame, as can the quality of the butane that you use.
- Bleed excess air from the lighter if the flame is too low or irregular. Push down on the gas release valve, without engaging the spark, and keep it down until you no longer hear a hissing sound. As an alternative, turn the lighter over so that the refill valve is facing up. Press the valve in with a small length of wire until you no longer hear a hissing sound.
- Clean the area around the burners with a pipe cleaner soaked in alcohol. Ash, dirt and oil deposits from lower quality butane can clog the gas outlets.
- Press the ignition trigger and listen for a clicking sound that signifies that the quartz ignitor is operational. If you don't hear a click, replace the lighter. If you hear a click, verify that there is a spark in the ignition chamber. You may have to look directly into the chamber, so make sure that the lighter is empty and there is no danger of the flame igniting.
- Readjust the sparking mechanism with a small screwdriver if the lighter is producing a spark, but it is not igniting the gas. The spark is probably not properly situated in the middle of the combustion chamber.
- Refill the lighter with high-quality butane. Bleed the air out of the lighter, then turn it over so the refill valve is facing up and press the nozzle of the canister into the valve and hold it for five seconds. Repeat as many times as necessary until the lighter is full.
