???? cut in half longitudinaly/lenghtwise?

Arched like a horseshoe?

Arched with channel side on the outside or inside?

I have a burner that burns wvo extremely efficiently, ... it has a nozzel that sits oe or two thousandths of an inch below the surface of a pool of oil, turn on the air to the nozzel and you get a very fine cloud of oil, then light the cloud and it burns very clean and hot, ...
Sounds interesting. how do you keep the hole plugged that the air shoots thru when the air is off so the oil does not drain out? or do you only introduce the oil AFTER the air valve is turned on and burn it all off before shutting down?

oops... topic for a differetn thread. If you have a thread on this unit already feel free to link to an existing answer over there or add your answer to that thread.

Like a horseshoe with the channel legs pointing away from the center of the arc like a curved trough, the legs a to keep the oil from running off the edges.
I dont have a link to my heater, it is a much modified murphy burner so I dont want to step on murps toes as he is still selling them, there is a video on Graydons website somewhere showing it burning.

Fabricator mentioned the possiblity of using a channel type "ball". Somewhere I saw a burner where the builder used part of a pulley to spread the oil, just like you are proposing. Appeared to work for him. I just tried locating the posts but can't find it. Most likely on this site or the Yahoo babington burner list.

Hello everyone, I recently acquired a total of four military Airtronics Babington burner units. These are new in the original boxes, but appear to have been test fired and each contain a small amount of fuel. I have listed them on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISA...eName=STRK:MESELX:IT for $1500 each or best offer (the Marine Corps paid $3900 each). These are the units being discussed in this thread, which to the best of my knowledge are not currently available anywhere else in the world. Please let me know if I can answer any questions about the burners, or if anyone here is interested in purchasing one. Thanks, Pete O'Rourke
