The report is a guide for those in charge of operating coal-stoker-fired boilers. It explains and illustrates the types of coal-fired stokers in operation today. It explains the combustion process in simple terms. It explains the various heat losses in stoker boilers. And, it discusses ways in which coal-stoker-fired boilers may be operated at peak efficiency and with minimum pollutant emissions. Included are step-by-step instructions for optimizing excess air levels. The guidelines are based on the findings of an extensive coal-stoker test program cofunded by the American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA), the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
