SAFIRE™

Sometimes you want more power, sometimes you want more hands.
The new Safire™ burner from Cameron is the powerful and elegant solution to both of those problems.
The Safire™ is 50% more powerful than standard burners which means you burn less often – which is good for you and your passengers.
Designed for larger balloons – 180 and up, – in most cases the Safire™ allows you to use a double instead of a triple or a triple instead of a quad.  With one less burner, you simplify the fuel system, reduce weight, and best of all reduce cost.

With a Safire™ double you can operate both burners at full power with just one hand – freeing the other hand for the vent line or radio.
The Safire™ also has some unique features like automatically handling condensation buildup to avoid water drips and stains, for example.
If you’re looking to put some fun back into your ride flying, you should try the Safire™.

  • 50% more powerful than a standard burner
  • Single hand operation of both main blast valves
  • extra power allows the use of a double instead of a triple or triple instead of quad**
  • saves weight and cost when down-sizing from triple or quad
  • simplifies fuel management
  • proven performance of the Stratus™ valve-block

**depending on envelope size.

 

Originally introduced under the Thunder & Colt Brand, the Stratus burner has been a proven performer, and a big hit – particularly with ride balloon operators.

Our Double-Seal blast valve solves the age-old problem of damaged “O” rings and cold weather leaks. If the pressure-bearing “O” ring leaks (the ‘primary’ seal in the diagram above), the secondary seal prevents a blast-valve leak and allows the propane to vent harmlessly into the burner can through an ‘escape tunnel’, where it harmlessly combusts — instead of being forced out the valve stem and into the basket — and onto your passengers.

If an ‘O’ ring leaks in other brands of burners, the pilot would be forced to shut the burner off or execute an immediate emergency landing. With a Cameron burner, if the first ‘O’ ring fails, the vented chamber between the ‘O’ rings channels the fuel to the pilot light where it harmlessly combusts. As a result, pressure build-up behind the second ‘O’ ring is eliminated, allowing the pilot to continue flying on to find a suitable landing site — all without having to turn the burner off.

Interestingly enough, Cameron introduced the double ‘O-Ring’ design well before the Shuttle Challenger disaster. Space shuttle rockets now incorporate the same double ‘O-ring’ and vent system as in all Super, Ultra and Sirocco Cameron burners.

And last but certainly not least, you can even lubricate the “O” rings yourself — through the lubrication port — which means fewer missed flights and fewer trips to your local repair station.

Cameron’s second generation MK IV burner, the Super Double has a strong reputation generated by many years of use. Incorporating the proprietary Cameron double ‘O’ ring’ blast valve and the quiet and powerful Whisper burner, the Super has many of the features of its successor, the Ultra burner. The Super is available with vapor pilot lights and our traditional inner burner frame (the monoblock gimbal or EasyUp is not available on this model), and like all Cameron burners, the Super’s burner frame is equipped with our exclusive articulated corner pole sockets that work in concert with our FlexiRigid system to ensure maximum flexibility.

And finally, the construction of the Super is Cameron quality throughout, built only with exclusive purpose-designed and purpose-built components made of quality materials like stainless steel. Unlike other burners on the market, there are no Rego valves or other critical fuel parts on the Super that can be found in your local plumbing store – everything is purpose-engineered and purpose-built.

Laser-made burner jets let you easily tune your burner to your particular environment!

Choose from several styles which let you customize according to your needs: extra power, extra quiet — or even, a combination

 

A balloon for odd couples calls for an adjustable-height burner frame so you can switch pilots — and heights — in flight.

With the touch of a finger, a simple-to-use lever controls the gas-charged cylinder that determines the height setting. With this system, infinite settings are possible – with no preset heights, you can set your burner at exactly the height that works for you.

  • 7″ of height adjustment
  • Can be adjusted in flight
  • Locks in place, press the release lever to adjust
  • No heavy lifting – the weight of the burner is held by the pneumatic strut
  • Infinitely adjustable — not limited to preset heights

Cameron’s optional EasyUp™ burner frame allows the burner to be separated from the frame — which means you can completely install the burner and upright assembly without lifting any weight above your waist!

For easy installation before flight, just lay the basket on its side and install the burner into the outer frame with the attached quick-pins — presto, you’re ready to go!

EasyUp™ is a trademark of Cameron Balloons.

 

The articulated joint on each corner of the burner frame not only absorbs shock and torque on landing, it also makes setting the burner up a one-person job.

All Cameron burners are standard-equipped with articulated corner joints – and are backed by free replacement grommets for life. Grommets are replaced with simple tools in just a few minutes, and are owner-replaceable.

Cameron’s Whisper burner, standard on all our burners, is great for showing off your balloon on night tethers. But more importantly, this powerful auxiliary burner (80% as powerful as the main burner) is a quiet way to float by people and livestock without disturbing them. Think of this as your Good Neighbor valve.

• Separate fuel path – fully redundant
• 80% as powerful as the main burner
• Triple-seals for peace-of-mind operation

Integrated in every Cameron burner is our reliable pilot light with built-in ignition. Purpose-designed to be reliable with low maintenance, Cameron’s precision crafted burner parts are truly functional works of art.
