“PETROMAX” lanterns were designed and developed by Adolf & Max Graetz, who were appointed managing directors of their family business (Ehrich & Graetz) in 1889.
From their efforts arose the most powerful & reliable lanterns in the world. Petromax lanterns run on a variety of fuels.. kerosene,diesel oil,lamp oils.
Designed by the Germans since the early 1900’s, these pressurized, multi-fueled lanterns were invented to be the most reliable, easiest to use, and capable of operating on a wide variety of fuels (i.e…..kerosene, diesel, lamp oils).
Only the BriteLyt XL lantern can run on a variety of fuels see fuels.
BriteLyt XL starting with our state-of-the-art CAD engineering approach we set out to design a lantern that fixed the current lantern issues within the marketplace. Thicker brass, heavier assembly and Viton rubber are just a few of the improvements we’ve made.
