MSR has been developing a new type of stove that has advantages over existing stoves.
The stove is sometimes called the "Capillary Force Technology Stove System."
"Fuel is delivered to the burner by a Capillary Force Vaporizer (CFV). The CFV is a novel liquid vaporizer, constructed of ceramic layers, that has no moving parts and no need for mechanical pumping or a pressurized fuel tank."
Does anyone know what happened? -- why this stove has been delayed?
Apparently there are some other designs as well, employing similar principles or technologies.
Here are some articles:
[esp. the small unit that is pictured above the words Experimental US Military Pocket Stove]
For someone interested in building one of these, I wonder if there are plans available on the net somewhere....
Does anyone know where the ceramic fuel-vaporization units might be found?, or where the components might be available?
