NEW INSIGHTS IN THE BURNING AND COMBUSTION OF HEAVY –NON VOLATILE ORGANIC LIQUIDS

HOW TO UPGRADE WICKS OF STOVES

 

Addressing links between Indoor Air Pollution and Human Health

by

upgrading wicks of stoves and oil lamps

 

3 Keys

 

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.

 

Additionally:

 

Upgrade compositions of fuel

 to minimize toxicity of soot.

Experiments:

 

Relate proportions of metal mesh envelope

to balance minimum generation of carbon soot,

for specific fuels, especially for Jatropha oil !
