What is the advantage of using a Bunsen Burner with a Bypass Tube?

A bunsen burner is a common piece of laboratory equipment that produces a single open flame. A continuous stream of a flammable gas such as natural (methane) or LPG (Liquified petroleum gas), propane or butane will safely burn.

A bunsen burner with a bypass tube attachment contains a control stopcock and pilot ignition flame.

With addition of the by-pass feature a great economy in the use of gas may be obtained. The user has the ability of turning down the gas when it is not required, therefore relighting  when only necessary.



There is small jet inside the burner. The burner is relighted by simply raising the bypass lever.
