just kidding!! i finally made it up to harmony today and let me tell you i could not be happier. this is by far the best coal ive ever seen. im used to waiting 30 to 45 minutes to get my coal going, not with uae, 5 minutes to baby blues, this stuff is rocket fuel!!! two hours into my first burn and its the hottest coal ive had and i even had the air cut down some. the people were great to deal with, they even put air in my tires!ill never go anywhere else for my coal needs. i drove over 3 hours and it was well worth it and i recomend that everone make the same trip up there...its the only path to true harmony!!!
i got nut size coal and its been two full days of burning now and no problems at all. in fact it was the easiest shake downs I've had in a long time but even better there wasnt a bunch of unburnt coal in the ash. i did cut back on the air so maybe thats it too. the other coal i was burning would burn in the middle but not so good around the edges of my furnace. not so with this uae coal it burns total and the heat is crazy good
I live about 20 minutes from Harmony. I also pastor a church in Mt. Carmel so when I go to the church during the week I swing by and get about 500 lbs. It is nice that it's convenient and I don't have to make a huge project of getting coal. Heating the house now is almost a pleasure but not quite.
Your right about it being crazy hot. I burn Harmony in the boiler but I have to do a mix in the stoker stove. If I don't it clinkers up. I would like to run straight harmony in the stoker stove but it burns so hot it fuses the ash. I even back the air off as far as I can but it's still burning too hot. The grates in the stove are smaller than in the boiler. There is enough grate size to accomodate the extra hot burn temps I guess because it doesn't clinker up so bad in the boiler.
I got two bags of blaschack coal just to try it out. Man was that a mistake!!!! The coal was wet and loaded with fines and dirt. The water drained to the bottom of the hopper and mixed with the fines and made a paste that clogged up the coal feed. I shoveled it all back out and dumped it on the floor in the coal room in the basement to dry out. Cleared the hopper and had to clean out the feed throat then relite with 100% dry coal. I used my last burn bag. Gotta go to the little grocery store in Trevorton and pick up some more.
