Advantages and disadvantages of kerosene stove. How to use the stove in detail

What is a kerosene pressure stove?

The pressurized stove is safer, more convenient, and more efficient. A kerosene pressure stove consists of a fuel tank, a steam burner, and a potholder. Air and kerosene are premixed through a hand pump. The vaporized kerosene is passed under pressure through a nozzle and mixes with air to form a flame.

To start the process the burner has to be preheated using flame which burns for several minutes in a tray placed below it. The pressure forces the kerosene continuously through the burner nozzle and is controlled by an adjustment valve. To control the intensity of the flame, thus producing heat, the user can control the tank pressure by over-pumping the tank to increase the pressure and enlarge the flame.

Twisting a small "Air Screw" (Usually located in the filler cap) will release the pressure from the tank and make the flame smaller. This is how a kerosene pressure stove works.
