Hey guys, I've burning coal for about two months now in an AHS S130 Coal Boiler. I finally got a few pictures to share, but wrt this thread I wanted to post my coal ash and get your feedback on whether it looks like it should or not. I have no prior experience and nothing to compare it with. I purchased my bagged coal from crazy4coal. We've been enjoying the heat so much we've gotten relaxed on our thermostat :notsure: I've already used 25% of my coal and I thought I was well-covered for the season... I may just need to get some more in a few months. We're heating both baseboard and domestic water. Anyway, here's the pictures of the coal ash. Any comments?

Your ash looks similar to mine when burning red ash coal. Looks like there are some unburnt or partially unburnt pieces. Unburnt coal occurs when the fire is not burning across the entire width of the burn column. This occurs when there is light demand and the combustion blower turns off before a good robust burn establishes itself across the entire width of the burn column. The unburnt pieces could also be the so called bone, or slate. When I burn white ash coal there is more powder and less clinkers. My experience has been with Superior (red ash) and Blaschak (White ash). The Superior burns hotter, but produces more clinkers. The sometimes large clinkers are not a problem for the AHS130, the ashing grate is robust and will simply break and expel the clinker.

Good to know... Thanks Yanche!
Hey, since your running the same boiler, how much draft are you running at? I only get .01 movement on my manometer. On one hand, I think its good to operate at a low draft and I'm not seeing any issues yet. But, on the other hand, I can't seem to influence the draft upward either. This seems strange to me. Any thoughts?

I have about 0.02 - 0.03 inches H2O. About a 25 ft. clay lined chimney. About the only thing I would suggest is the next time you need to replace your stove pipe is use 5 inch all the way to the chimney. It may cause a slight increase. I would also eliminate the clean out tee and angle the stove pipe from the boiler breach directly to the chimney thimble if possible. I find getting a good natural draft with my S130 is difficult. Doesn't seem to effect operation though.

Your red ash is the same color of the ash from the rice coal I bought from crazy4coal last year. Looks identical except for the size. However, this year the coal is different and is producing white ash and no chunks at all. I think it's burning hotter than last years batch too.

Is your bagged coal from Kimmel's? I took del'y of 5 ton back in October. I've heard some comments about red ash vs white ash... but I suppose I'll learn with experience.

Yep its all bagged Kimmel's. I picked up a ton this past Sunday. Most of it was this years load, but there were a few bags from last year in there too. Unloading a ton of bags in the cold rain, one bag at a time, up and down a short flight of icy steps - good times i tell ya, good times. :D
