The Solid Fuel Burner/Boiler
The Onix Corporation offers a full line of steam
and hot water boilers to complement the WBB series solid fuel
burner. These boilers wipe the energy from any hot (1200-1800°F)
flue gas and produce ultra high pressure steam up to 45,000
lbs/hr (1300 hp). Ideal for any industrial application requiring
steam at a reduced cost.
These systems are equipped with microprocessor control systems
which automatically modify the fuel feed rate to match the desired
boiler outlet pressure. A pressure controller on the boiler senses
a demand for steam. Three things happen simultaneously: 1) fuel
feed rate increases to burn more fuel; 2) combustion air to the
burner increases in direct proportion to fuel feed rate; and
3) the induced draft fan's modulating damper opens to draw more
hot gases through the boiler and generate more steam.
Solid fuel fires very clean in the burner. There is no smoke,
no malodor, no VOC's and no CO. Solid fuel combustion does produce
some dead inert ash. Some of this ash remains in the base of
the burner. It needs to be shoveled out every several weeks.
The smallest ash particulates (too small to be visible) carry
out of the burner and through the boiler. The tubes of the boiler
get dusted with ash and have to be cleaned every several weeks.
Steam soot blowers can automate this task.
- The entire system is automatic and basically labor free.
System integrity is excellent for years of trouble-free performance.
