Start with something that holds oil ( spec #1), then modify design from there.

I would use a draftsman's drawing board, paper & pencil

Binga Trees Project

"Any of you have any idea to make simple and sobber beautiful Jatropha oil lamp..........???"

Use a fancy jar or container for the oil.

Jatropha Oil is not :

desulphurized Kerosene -that will move up a cotton wick,be vaporized at low temperature and vapours further cracking to simpler Hydrocarbons-- all happily burning and illuminating with Bright Orange flame

Jatropha can be burnt for illuminating flame and/or cooking heat/hot gas at a much higher Temp. --like in the old Primus Stove . Means, you must pressurize and Pass JO through a high temperature thermal cracking ZONE to get simpler hydrocarbons-- which will be good as bright powerful illuminating flame.This needs development.

Otherwise Jatropha will burn like the Oil lamps at Diwali. Flickering , yellow, sooty glow.

Please bear in mind --Jatropha is aimed at replacing Petrobased Diesel oil as injection fuel(not Carburettor fuel).

Excellent answer...

How is jatropha oil produced? I am assuming it is a distilled product from the leaves, seeds or root of the plant. If so there are various grades that would impact the design of a product.

What other uses does this product have?

Dear Friend

Jatropha oil is produced by jatropha curcus seeds which can be obtained after removing of shells from its fruit.

Actually these seeds contain 20-35% of oil which is extracted by seed press expellers specially designed for the purpose.

This oil have a lot of uses like medicinal, Lamp Oil and most importantly it is used in biodiesel prodution after transesterification reaction.

Would an Alladin style lamp work? It appears to have a high temperature thermal cracking zone similar to a primus lamp. both of them use a catalyst mantle to get the really hot white flame.

As a starting point why not see if a Coleman or Primus lamp with a pressurized resevoir will work. If it does then refeen the design to optimize for jatropha oil.

Just put this response in "Nonedible oil lamps" above may fit even here

Check Link:

http://www.plantoilstove.com a remarable work done by one of the giant companies

This is as a Primus ( we swedes like Primus and not Coleman ;-) stove running on carbon rich vegatable oil and probably an yttria glow net could be adopted and then you will have a "petromax" running on vegable oil...

Maybe worth writing to this people ..maybe the do not know your problem they usually work at the high end but the engineer resources are formidable within the Siemens company .... maybe you could convince them to make a Siemens lamp to introduce the name in more places ;-) .... or try to get hold of a palm oil stove and a few Petromaxlamps and sit down and think ...go to the local blacksmith and maybe you have a growing small cottage industry ....

biber@telia.com ( as a matter of fact a kicked out Siemens Man , I was to old ......)
