After a 24 hours of burning the new coal, I had to increase the feed rate. It definetly creates larger ash clinkers than my old coal. I'll have to wait until colder weather to really test it. As I increase feed rate ash is being pushed much quicker and I don't see that much of an issue. Problem is more obvious during off season times, as I use my boiler all year for domestic hot water.
Well, I usually don't complain about small issues, and this so far is just a tiny spec on my list of the problems that I deal in my life. For the price I paid I think I can deal with it. Then again, ask me after a full year of burning it and I'll have a more definite answer.
