Influence of Total Contamination of Jatropha Curcas Oil on Deposits and Performance of Plant Oil Pressure Stoves

&
At the Universität Hohenheim (Stuttgart, Germany) a plant oil pressure stove 'Protos' was developed in cooperation with Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH (Munich, Germany). The stove shows satisfactory performance and reliability; however, combustion deposits are formed inside the vaporizer when using plant oil as fuel. The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of total contamination content of J .curcas oil on the technical performance and formation of deposits in the plant oil...
