Dear Tom Reed,
Today, I bought a Kerosene Stove and using biomass (slightly soaked in
kerosene) as fuel conducted the experiment. For photographs please see this
The learning from this experiment is great and I am thankful to you. The
stove was lit at the top. The fine holes between 1and 2 mm located all along
the inner and outer frame helped in achieving very good flame most of the
time bluish. The total performance was about 45 minutes. Only at the end,
unexpectedly the fire has risen very high (Reasons I am not sure). Yes,
there is a lot to learn from oil lamps and Kerosene stoves for improving the
Natural Draft Woodgas Stoves. Please also see this link
Today I have done one more experiment of Magh Utham versions.
