Protection Plate for HK500
The protection plate is a practical and recommendable accessory for all Petromax high-pressure lamps. A damaged mantle can cause the propagation of small but very hot flames in the lamp which can cause solder joints at the tank to become detached. The protection plate, set above the centered base of the support shields the tank. With the protection plate, the tank remains intact even when the mantle is damaged. The plate is also necessary for the installation of the Petromax Radiator.
This plate is suitable for lamps built in or after the year 2000. You can recognize them through the supporting rod which is screwed to the supporting frame. For lamps built before the year 2000, the supporting rod is riveted to the supporting frame.
