Video tells you how the gravity feed burner works
Video I
Video II

Construction of the burner:

Principle: 1 stove body,2 fuel bin,3 burning element,4 hot air space,5 fresh air intake,6.flue,7.ash pan,21.cover.

open cover 21, ignating a piece of paper and charcoal in burning element 3, then put in fuel to fuel bin 2, close cover21. Fire takes place inside burning element 3. Ash falls down to ash pan 7 by gravity. As burning progresses, fuel inside burning element 3 is consuming, empty space is formed inside burning element 3. By gravity force fuel will fall from fuel bin 2 to burning element 3. In this way burning and refill is kept automatically.
size of burning element 3 and air intake 5 and flue 6 determine the strength of fire.
a 3 meter or 10 feet hight double layers stainless steel flue guarantees burning on.
a 3 to 10 watt DC blower will help burning more stable. In case clinker or bridge blocking inside fuel bin 2, a blower will help burning it down shortly.
