I'm ordering one of these: https://sensorcon-sensing-products-by-molex.myshopify.com/products/programmable-carbon-monoxide-meter?variant=4193498308 for use in our kitchen at work.

With the nights beginning to cool down, I'll be borrowing it to test some lanterns and stoves in my 16 X 24' cabin. I can also test lanterns in my tiny bathroom, where I like to have one running while I soak in the tub (TMI?)

So, any specific lanterns or stoves you all would like tested? I have a fair selection of lanterns from a very early 316 through most all of the 220/8s, 200s, 242s, 236 and Diesel-burning 237.

Of course, if you want me to test a lantern or stove I don't own, you can just send me one. I promise to take good care of it!

Heck, I'll probably test 'em all over the winter. I'm particularly curious about the big 237 and some of my stoves.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Well, your already going to try the only one I would've been curious about (237) They seem like that would be oxygen hogs. Double burner stoves probably eat it up as well... But probably not something practically going to be in the bathroom... Idk maybe you cook breakfast while bathing as well... ðŸ˜

I'll be interested in 237, 639 kerosene tests as I use them to take the chill off quite often.

That's a nice looking unit Timm.

Don't forget.  different lanterns, even of the same model, may exhibit different  CO or CO2 output.  running lean?  or rich?  it makes a difference.  same as cars can have different smog output.  

Some testing, deliberately going in each direction would be interesting.  Maybe mess with the pricker for lean and the air intake for rich?

Maybe a comparison of newer vs. older models or torch lite vs. instant lite models...just a suggestion.

I have a Coleman model 235 lantern that I bought and got it running with the generator that came with it. It ran great and burned bright. But quickly discovered that being in the same room with this lantern while running was making me feel sick.
Turns out that generator wasn't meant for kero. Built a correct gen. for that model and problem solved.
A before and after test on that one would have been intetesting.

Definitely interested in the results. Would a 236 be more or less CO than a 237? Considering different fuels.

Ron Brown reported the results of his CO testing in the book, Ron Brown, 2015, Book 5: Coleman Gas Lanterns, R & C Publishing, Newark Valley, New York.  He burned a 639-with-pricker, in a closed 5 x 8 x 8 bathroom, in the shower stall with curtain closed.  Sensor was just outside the shower curtain at the gap at the top of the shower.  (CO rises in air.)  Lantern was in the tub.  Burning white gas for an hour, he got an average of 10 ppm, range 6 to 14 ppm, and spikes up to 25 ppm.  Burning kerosene in the same lantern, average 16 ppm, range 12 to 20 ppm and spikes up to 39.  With a Rayo kerosene wickie, he got average 20 ppm, range 16 to 24 with transient spikes up to 41.  I don't know how he got transient spikes that were outside the range, but those are the data he reported.

How bout a 200A, well used with a warped frame and leaky u-tube/venturi joints?

Our Inspector Industrial Pro CO monitor finally showed up. We bought it for checking CO levels in the kitchen--several employees have complained of CO poisoning symptoms. I left it in there from Mon. afternoon 'til this AM. High for that time was 0ppm. Average over the last 24 hours was 0 ppm. I hope we've laid that ghost to rest now!

But it's still too hot to do any indoor lantern or stove testing. I'm leaving the windows open at night with a vent fan running to cool the cabin off. Probably about a month away from heating season--I hope!

Muffler paste or wood stove gasket cement fixes the problem entirely. I no longer own a single stinking 200!
