The residual heat from a biomass unit varies greatly depending on the boiler design and the thermal mass of the combustion chamber. Light weight, fast response boilers require only 10L/kW, while industrial wet wood units with very high thermal mass require 40L/kW. Types of biomass heating systems
Biomass boilers are fully automatic industrial boiler system which deliver natural biomass or pellets to match the heat demand of the biomass fired boiler. Generally, biomass boilers share the similar structure with coal fired boilers and behave like coal or gas boilers.
Hurst Boiler & Welding Co., Inc manufactures its biomass boiler systems with an extended burn chamber, increasing dwell time for the combustion of any unwanted particulates and emissions before they are able to exit the system, making the process much cleaner, which reduces maintenance time and costs.
Biomass needs to be made dense to provide ease of mechanical handling and feeding, uniform combustion in boilers, reduced cost of transportation and ease of storage. The types of dense biomass to choose from are pellets, briquettes or loose biomass that has been dried before being fed into the boiler.
Hurst Boiler & Welding Company, Inc. has been manufacturing, designing, engineering and servicing gas, oil, coal, solid waste, wood, biomass and hybrid fuel-fired steam and hot water boilers since 1967, for thousands of satisfied customers.
Coal fired boiler generates thermal energy by burning powdered coal, biomass boiler is very similar to coal boiler by burning logs, pellets or chips. These two boiler are widely used in power station, chemicals, textile and printing and dyeing, energy, mining, paper making, agriculture industries, etc.
