The burning of low-sulfur western coals in boilers designed for bituminous fuels can result in operational problems. Resolution of these problems requires modification of the existing systems. In examining five boiler types, cyclone, pulverized coal, spreader stoker, cross-feed, and under-feed boilers, the necessary conversion factors were identified. To understand the significance of operational problems in burning western coals, a background on coal characteristics and boiler design is presented. This information serves as a basis for discussion of the experiences in industrial and power-generating usage of western coals.
