Abstract: Sustainable products become increasingly important for the company in addressing eco-performance to satisfy global environmental regulations. Wick module using stainless steel was designed to fulfill Green and Safety regulations. A specific wick and its rolled from a metallic meshed body provided active capillary phenomenon. The temperature at the tip of the cord can reach 900 degrees Celsius, so the fuel in the stainless steel wick can burn. Only carbon dioxide and water vapor are produced during the combustion process. Due to the lower viscosity coefficient of water, there is a relatively small increase in the liquid level over time. We chose liquid biofuel as the test object. When the metal roll was placed vertically, we found that there was a significant increase in fluid level.

Keywords: Flame wick, safety , stainless steel, capillary
