Flame Temperature Comparisons.


Our first trial at flame temperature comparisons are in, thanks to new editor Krispy.


There were 5 different readings taken on a variety of tools (below) with a laser theremometer.

1) Intial temp was taken from dipped unspun-off poi while lit imeediately and dripping

2) Spinoff temperature was taken once the poi had been spun a bit and were no longer dropping fuel

3) Midburn temp was taken about midburn

4) Endburn temps were taken as the falme began to dim and fade.

5) Fnish temps were taken with the flame freshly extinguished.
