Coal 1. The WCB Boiler is designed to burn anthracite (hard) coal of the “Chestnut” or “Nut” size. We do not recommend the use of bituminous (soft) coal. Bituminous coal has a high ash and sulphur content and produces by-products that can corrode the boiler fireside surfaces. 2. An adequate storage bin should be provided for storage.
Indirect co-firing: A gasifier converts solid biomass into a gaseous fuel which is then burned together with the coal in the boiler. Parallel co-firing: A separate boiler is used for biomass, and the steam generated is then mixed with steam from the coal fired boilers. This is a complicated process and is not in general use.
Nov 29, 2015 · With coal (and wood) fired boilers you are leaving behind the world of toy steam and entering model engineering. The boilers are specifically constructed for the type of fuel they will use. They cost a lot more - with good reason. So what's the difference between firing a toy steam boiler and one that runs on coal?
