Stokers are designed to feed fuel onto a grate where it burns with undergrate air (UGA) passing up through it, and overfire air (OFA) passing over it.
The grate is located within the lower furnace and is designed to remove the ash residue after combustion. B&W's mechanical stoker/grate system designs are available to burn a wide range of fuels for industrial, small utility and cogeneration applications. In addition to burning all forms of coal, other fuels burned include sludge, wood waste and biomass (e.g., wood, bark, straw, bagasse, rice hulls, peach pits, almond shells, orchard prunings, coffee grounds), as well as residential, agricultural, industrial and commercial refuse.
