Application of Powdered Coal to Small Boilers of Industrial Plants

Henry Kreisinger


In this paper the author points out that improvement of small-plant efficiency is generally possible through the use of pulverized-coal firing. Factors causing poor combustion conditions are enumerated. Several typical installations of powdered coal under small steam boilers of industrial plants are discussed, and the method of operation calculated to produce best results is given attention. Complete information in tabular form is given for one installation, showing size of boiler, furnace dimensions, type of burners, operation results, etc.
