: I HAVE A PAKAGE TYPE BOILER 'THREE PASS OF CAP.8 TON/H STEAM & IS HEAVY FUEL FIRED.I WANT TO CONVERT IT FROM FUEL OIL TO WASTE WOOD CUTTING BURNINNGS.
: PLEASE GIVE ME SUGGESTIONS
: THANKS & REGARDS.
This is quite a change. The heating values of heavy oil and wood are significantly different, as well as the excess air requirements (i.e., different flue gas weights, convective and radiant heat transfer rates, etc.). The ash loading for the wood is also going to be orders of magnatude greater than for oil. There are also issues with the fuel delivery system, i.e., you're probubly going from burners to a grate. Good luck!
