Esbit 1400 Degree Smokeless Solid Fuel Cubes

Esbit Heritage

Esbit hexamine solid fuel tablets were first developed in Murrhardt, Germany in 1932 by Eric Schumm. The name Esbit is literally an acronym – Erich Schumm Brennstoff in Tabletten (fuel in tablet form). Since then, Esbit solid fuel has proven itself as an efficient and reliable source of energy even under the most extreme weather conditions. Esbit fuels and stoves are used by various NATO forces, expeditions, in the aftermath of disasters and by a variety of outdoor enthusiasts.

How it works

Esbit solid fuel tablets are made from hexamethylenetetramine, a non-explosive compound that ignites when placed in contact with a flame. It burns evenly without sparks, producing a strong heat output. Each tablet will burn approximately 12 minutes up to 1,300° F (700° C). Depending upon conditions, this is usually sufficient to boil 16 ounces (500 ml) of water in roughly 8 minutes. Esbit fuel is virtually smokeless and residue-free; it does not liquefy when burning and leaves almost no ash.

Advantages

Unlike liquid or gas fuels, Esbit solid fuel tablets do not require a heavy cans or cartridges to transport. Each tablet is individually enclosed in low bulk, waterproof packaging that greatly reduces carry-out waste for backpackers. The strong heat output of Esbit solid fuel tablets relative to their size and weight makes them one of the most efficient portable heating options available – as well as economical. Each fuel tablet is 1.0 x 1.5 x 0.5 inches and weighs only 14 grams. Esbit solid fuels work reliably at high altitudes and sub-zero temperatures. Because of their stability, Esbit solid fuel tablets can be considered among the safest of fuel options for transport. Esbit solid fuel tablets can be stored for up to 10 years before use.

Applications

Esbit has become an indispensable component of standard equipment and ration packs for armed forces and NGOs all over the world. Closer to home, Esbit solid fuel tablet and stoves are an ideal solution for campers cooking meals, heating freeze-dried food and brewing hot drinks. Ultralight backpackers especially appreciate the low weight and compact profile of Esbit solid fuel tablets. Use Esbit solid fuels to start campfires and grills. In cases of emergencies, Esbit solid fuel can provide a safe, convenient source of heating for food and beverages.

What’s in the Box

12 Esbit solid fuel cubes, each 14 grams. Box is 1.2 x 3.5 x 1.2 inches, weight 6.5 ounces. Each tablet is individually sealed in waterproof packaging.

I use these primarily for the Esbit pocket stove but they also make for excellent fire starters, especially in adverse conditions. Amazon has proven a reliable source for…

Best solid fuel tablet We tested these tablets in the eastern Sierras at an altitude of 9800 feet. They were at least a year old and boiled 16 ounces of water in a Stanley Adventure Camp Cook Set. It worked well with little residue. I would recommend these to be used with the Wetfire stove.The only downside is they are a bit large.
