I try to avoid using bunsen burners when possible.  I use microwaves to heat 
water, and hotplates for the rest.  The only time I really use bunsen burners 
is for - duh - flame tests.

Dear Penny,  When I have needed a bunsen burner and there was none available, I 
have used the butane type of burners with the disposable refills.  They work 
well, and work for flame tests too. Flinn has AP1032 Portable Lab Burner $45.71 
each, AP1033 is replacement burner cartridge at $12.31 each.  Ask for a 
quantity discount.  Hope this helps.  Susan

[KACT] Replacement for Bunsen Burners

We found out our gas delivery system in our rooms is in need of replacement.  
We have two nice lab rooms that really don’t need remodeling so we are thinking 
of going to an alternative to Bunsen burners.  Specifically, we are considering 
the electric Bunsen burner found in the Daigger catalog.  They are expensive, 
but not as expensive as remodeling two lab rooms.  Has anyone seen these?  Can 
you do flame tests with them?
