Abstract

The purpose of this investigation was to learn the effect of constructional details of the burner and the framework on the performance of kerosene stoves. Six stoves were used, four of the long-chimney type and two of the short-chimney type. Of the long-chimney burners, three were from the same manufacturer; the fourth was similar in appearance, but differed in performance. Of the short chimneys one burner used a wick, the other a lighting ring. The effect of: (1) draft variations and constructional details and (2) the framework on the heating time and thermal efficiency of stoves was studied.
