Safety valve for kerosene oil based pressure stoves & Lamps:
Kerosene oil based stoves are very common in use in lower and middle strata of society and very small-scale industries. But in spite of this no safety provision has been provided in pressure stoves and some times because of more air pressure created due to more amount of air pumped in these pressure stoves oil tank burst out and many people die. Generally while using pressure stoves if the flame is burning at a low speed then more amount of air is pumped inside pressure stoves, oil burns in pressure stoves at a more pace. But if the pipe or burner is blocked because of some impurities, sediments then still oil will burn at a lower pace, but user does not recognize this problem and keeps on continuously pumping air inside the stove, after some time pressure level rises so high in the oil tank that tank bursts and moreover this bursting oil from tank gets flame from the burner and generally an explosion occurs.
Now this invention provides a safety valve, which will be placed at existing stoves on a particular location or preferably at the hole from where oil is filled inside stove. In existing stoves this hole is covered by a cap and with the knob of this cap pressure is released. This existing cap can be replaced with proposed safety valve with or without any modification instead of existing caps.
