Space Heating Device Bukhari (Himtapak)
This Bukhari, designed and developed by DIPAS (DRDO) is a kerosene fuelled, safe and efficient vented space heating device.
- Multiple level safety against back-draft generated blasts.
- Back-draft resistant exhaust vent.
- Three impact braking plates between two chambers.
- No auto ignition of burner if extinguished.
- No build-up of harmful gases and fumes in the room.
- Uses only 500-700 ml kerosene/hr.
- Maximal extraction of heat, no thermal wastage in exhaust gases.
- Keeps the room comfortably warm by both convective and radiative heating.
Each bukhari prevents about one ton of CO2 and 0.3 tons of black carbon per year from going to environment.
- Two chambered design, one for hot air blower and other for flue gases.
- The hot air is circulated in the room with the help of a DC fan that is operated with power generated from a solar panel and stored in a small battery.
- An improved maintenance free exhaust vent has been provided which works on Bernaouli’s principle and does not allow air coming from any direction to extinguish the burner and thus prevent fire hazard.
- For the efficient heating a three burner stove has been developed that can also be used for cooking or warming food, heating water, etc.
- Controllable blue flame, so no soot formation.
- Bukhari has been designed to extract maximum heat so that there is less wastage of heat at the exhaust level
