 +An alcohol burner or spirit lamp is a piece of laboratory equipment used to produce an open flame. It can be made from brass, glass, stainless steel or aluminum.
 +Alcohol burners are preferred for some uses over Bunsen burners for safety purposes, and in laboratories where natural gas is not available. Their flame is limited to approximately 5 centimeters (two inches) in height, with a comparatively lower temperature than the gas flame of the Bunsen burner.[2][3]
 +While they do not produce flames as hot as other types of burners, they are sufficiently hot for performing some chemistries,​ standard microbiology laboratory procedures, and can be used for flame sterilization of other laboratory equipment. ((https://​​wiki/​Alcohol_burner)
