HOW TO UPGRADE WICKS OF STOVES
Addressing links between Indoor Air Pollution and Human Health
upgrading wicks of stoves and oil lamps
By reducing the release of damaging carbon soot!
By speeding the atomization of fuel oil into smaller droplets that combust more rapidly.
By wrapping up the top of fiberglass wicks with
stainless steel metal mesh!
Experiments with Twin Burner Stoves
to minimize generation of toxic carbon soot particles:
Fit wick-top into a woven metal wire mesh envelope,
to generate narrow-sized droplet aerosol,
at optimized thermal condition.
Upgrade compositions of fuel
to minimize toxicity

TOYO-DANSO Vanessa Model TYD-002 DC
Twin Burner Stove
18 wicks per burner, made from
a fibre glass/cotton blend. Fully strippable unit, supplied fully built, unit can be drained & flat packed for storage.
72cm wide; 33.5cm deep; 33.5cm tall; 8kg weight
Relate proportions of metal mesh envelope
to balance minimum generation of carbon soot,
for specific fuels, especially for
Jatropha oil !
