Mix In Some Rice With My S130??

PostBy: watkinsdr On: Sat Apr 30, 2011 5:51 pm

Can I mix in some rice along with my pea with an S130? Just curious... I have some rice left over I'd like to get rid of...

Thanks in advance!

I slowly mixed in 4 tons of rice once. No problems as long as it is not soaking wet all around the auger.

Mozz, Dewey has an AHS 130, not an AA 130. No auger involved, but your point is well taken. None of them like wet coal, especially with a lot of fines in it. :idea:

You actually can burn anything that fits down the hopper, but I'd go easy on nut unless it has a few fines and is on the smaller side of the scale.

I've been mixing approximately one 40 lb bag of rice with two 40 lb bags of pea with no signs of problems yet. Since my family uses a lot of hot water; and, we've had some cold and windy weather, I'm still burning about 1.5 bags/60 lbs per day.
