Improving High Altitude Habitability and Sustainability

Product Highlights

The new Bukhari, designed and developed by DIPAS (DRDO), is a kerosene-fueled, safe, and efficient vented space heating device.


• Multiple level safety against back-draft-generated blasts.
• Back-draft resistant exhaust vent.
• Three impact braking plates between two chambers.
• No auto-ignition of the burner if extinguished.
• No build-up of harmful gases and fumes in the room.


• Uses only 500-700 ml kerosene/hr.
• Maximal extraction of heat, no thermal wastage in exhaust gases.
• Keeps the room comfortably warm by both convective and radiative heating.

Environment Friendly:

• Each bukhari prevents about one ton of CO2 and 0.3 tons of black carbon per

year from going to the environment.

Design features:

• Two chambered designs, one for hot air blower and the other for flue gases.
• The hot air is circulated in the room with the help of a DC fan that is operated with

power generated from a solar panel and stored in a small battery.

• An improved maintenance-free exhaust vent has been provided, which works on

Bernoulli’s principle and does not allow air coming from any direction to extinguish the burner and thus prevent a fire hazard.

• For efficient heating, a three-burner stove has been developed that can also be

used for cooking or warming food, heating water, etc.

• Controllable blue flame, so no soot formation.

• Bukhari has been designed to extract maximum heat so that there is less

wastage of heat at the exhaust level.
