A Report on Some Experiments with the Top-Lit Up Draft (TLUD) Stove

  • Dale Andreatta, Ph.D., P.E.


Slide2 l.jpg

The goal was to take an interesting stove design and apply more science than had previously been applied.


Advantage 1 l.jpg
Advantage #1 more science than had previously been applied.

  • Simple design

  • Non-critical dimensions

  • No fan

  • The “stove” is not a specific design but a collection of ideas that can be made in a number of ways.


Advantage 2 l.jpg
Advantage #2 more science than had previously been applied.

  • Super clean burning

  • 5 mg Particulate Matter per liter

  • 0.5 g of CO per liter

  • Cleaner than a fan powered stove


Advantage 3 l.jpg
Advantage #3 more science than had previously been applied.

  • Easy to control

  • Burns for a long time with little or no user intervention (with the right fuel)


Advantage 4 l.jpg
Advantage #4 more science than had previously been applied.

  • Can be powerful (short time to boil)

  • Can be reasonably efficient

  • Exit temperature is generally 600-800 C


Disadvantages l.jpg
Disadvantages more science than had previously been applied.

  • Fuel-sensitive (a fan would help a lot in this respect)

  • Sensitive to how the fuel is packed


The report contains l.jpg
The Report Contains more science than had previously been applied.

  • Detailed description of the stove, its design, construction, and operation.


The report contains11 l.jpg
The Report Contains more science than had previously been applied.

  • Detailed description of tests done with a variety of fuels.


The report contains12 l.jpg
The Report Contains more science than had previously been applied.

  • What happens when primary air is controlled, for a variety of fuels for a variety of flow rates.


As a function of primary air flow l.jpg
As a function of primary air flow more science than had previously been applied.

  • Measure fuel burning rate

  • Measure flame height

  • Calculate air to fuel ratio

  • Calculate equivalence ratio


The report contains15 l.jpg
The Report Contains more science than had previously been applied.

  • A rough chemical analysis of the pyrolysis process.


The report contains16 l.jpg
The Report Contains more science than had previously been applied.

  • A rudimentary mathematical model of the stove.
