  • Patent number: 10234135
    Abstract: Helical wick candle and method of manufacturing this candle. The candle typically comprises a candle with meltable fuel such as wax, and at least one helical wick with a helical radius of at least ¼? or greater. This helical wick is configured so that as the candle burns, the burning tip of the wick doesn't remain stationary, but rather circles the axis of the wick so as to burn more of the wax than would otherwise be possible with a prior art straight wick candle, at least when the diameter of the candle is larger than the pool of melted wax surrounding the wick. This results in higher fuel burning efficiency, often 1.5× or higher, as well as various interesting artistic shapes as the wick burns. Various wick sheath methods to improve the rigidity and burn resistance of the wick during the burning process are also discussed.

  • Patent number: 8475164
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device (10) and a method for rotating a flame and/or a plume of smoke, arranged with a heat source (36) in a chamber (16) with at least one gas inlet opening (24, 26, 30) and a gas outlet opening (32). The gas inlet opening (24, 26, 30) and the heat source (36) are located in a lower area (12, 20?) of the chamber (16). The gas outlet opening (32) is located in an upper region (14) of the chamber (1.6). In this way, an ascending gas flow may be generated in the chamber (16). At least one gas inlet channel or nozzle (24, 26, 30, 40) is adapted to direct inflowing gas therethrough into the lower area (12, 20?) of the chamber (16) approximately along an inner wall of the chamber about an at least approximately circular path following along the inner wall in the same rotational sense around the heat source and then is drawn upwardly by a draw of the upwardly flowing heated gases though the gas outlet opening (32).

  • Publication number: 20120231401
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide an interconnectable candle holder, which has a top surface formed with an opening extending inward along a longitudinal direction of the interconnectable candle holder to form a receiving space whose configuration allows a candle to be inserted into the receiving space, a lateral surface adjacent to the top surface and formed with a groove extending along the longitudinal direction to the bottom surface of the interconnectable candle holder and being in communication with the receiving space, and another lateral surface adjacent to the top surface and formed with a ridge extending along the longitudinal direction to the bottom surface and corresponding in configuration to the groove. Thus, a plurality of such candle holders having different heights can be connected with each other and jointly form a very stable supporting surface that effectively prevents the candle holders from toppling.
