The purpose of the construction is aimed at producing heat energy for commercial use by turning liquid fuel(kerosene).the construction was successful by appropriate selection of engineering material favourably mild steel(blacksheet) and steel iron for special p2rts.
The technological properties passed by the chosen mild steel are; machinability ,weldability,durability,andformability.mech2nude properties includem2llebillity,duetility,st2tic strength and high tensile strength .
The sequence of operation followed by the construction are; Literature review, material selection-fabrication evaluation and possible redesign and modification. The fabrication processes of the metallic material includes the making out, cutting bending hammering, joining, welding, grazing, smothering and finally printing.
A consideration of the operational environment which the store will function was taken into account and a material selection which has the ability of being prevented by coating from corrosion â€“mild steel was chosen.
After the construction, the operational efficiency was tested and is 92% effective that is, produces bluish flame which indicates that the aim of the construction was achieved.
The costing, which is the overriding factors, was tabulated headed under material costing labour costing and overhead costing.
Mode of operation of the store and the precautionary measure was also included in order to give the store a maximum service life.
