MAXbrite® 500 Burner – Product Detail (Updated December 2016)

MAXbrite® 500 Series Burner – Product Introduction

Updated: December 2016

Aladdin® MaXbrite® 500 burner

The Aladdin® side draft burner design has been time-tested and proven for over 80 years. Aladdin® introduced several incremental burner changes over the years.  We introduced the New Aladdin® MAXbrite® 500 burner in August/September 2015, which continues that tradition of changes and improvements.

The Aladdin® MAXbrite® Model 500 is a refined and improved version of the previous Aladdin® Model 23 side draft burner.  Therefore, the new MAXbrite® is now the replacement for side draft lamps. Our goal was to maximize light output. Many Model 23 burners suffer from random air leaks.  Those air leaks caused troublesome spikes in the flame.  As a result, Model 23 burners prevented mantles from reaching their maximum brightness capabilities. The MAXbrite® Model 500 burner eliminates the air leaks and spikes and allows mantles to reach their full brightness potential.

The Aladdin® MAXbrite® Model 500 burner is to be paired with a new MAXbrite® chimney. The chimney shape modifes the airflow and to further increase the mantle’s light output.

A new factory in China now manufactures the Aladdin® MAXbrite® burner.  We moved the final assembly and quality control to the USA and all of our current stock was inspected and assembled here in Ohio.  Collectors are calling it the finest burner produced in the last half century!

Model 23 burner part tooling was destroyed prior to Crownplace Brands taking over Aladdin® lamp and accessories production.  The MAXbrite® 500 uses all new tooling. We have many old parts in stock and in many cases MAXbrite® burner parts will fit on the Model 23 burners.  Unfortunately, Aladdin® Model 23 burners did not adhere to tight tolerances during production. In contrast, the MAXbrite® burner adheres to very precise specifications. As a result, we cannot guarantee that MAXbrite® parts will fit or produce the best results with all Model 23 burners.

We offer 2 finishes on the MAXbrite® Model 501 burners – Brass and Shiny Nickel.
