Abstract

NOVELTY - The wick (10) has a sheath (14) that surrounds the outer peripheral surface of a core (12). Several elongated inflexible elements made of borosilicate, which are arranged inside the sheath such that the diameter of the elongated inflexible element is between 0.4 mm and 4 mm. The inflexible elements are arranged in contact with adjacent elements to form channels such that the fluid flows along the channels of the inflexible element by capillary action. USE - Wick for use in fuel burner used to heat horticultural structure such as greenhouses and cold frames. ADVANTAGE - Since the inflexible elements are arranged in contact with adjacent elements to form channels, the fluid can flow easily along the channels of the inflexible element by capillary action. DETAILED DESCRIPTION - An INDEPENDENT CLAIM is included for manufacturing method of wick. DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) - The drawing shows the perspective view of the wick.
