I looked at a unit today that had An EFM stocker with a peerless water jacket. It was a large unit 700-1300 Efm. I could not believe how much it was cranking out.

EFM made many conversion stokers that 'lived' in many different kinds of boilers. Forum member Pacowy has an EFM conversion stoker in a Mills steam boiler.

Rob it was so hot in the boiler room i had to use a rag to open the door on the unit. I was absolutly impressed with the output of the unit. It was making all the hot water a a large dairy farm to wash lines and bulk tanks with. You could have forged steel over it. The whole time I was there the stoker never shut off (over 30 mins). I was amazed at the output . I will try some pics. I have to go back there this week.

I'm glad you got to see one in action, those stokers are "big medicine". That farm is very smart to use anthracite to produce hot water. Most people have no idea how much hot water a large parlor requires.

:woot: :punk:

Those three indirect water heaters must put one heck of a load on the boiler. Most parlor clean-in-place systems that I've seen call for 160 degree water.

I did not look to see what size milk line they have. It is a 1200 cow dairy with a carasell parlor. The indirects and the boiler were plumbed with 2" pipe and the boiler water was only at 160 both times I looked at it running WFO. I wonder how long the water side can take that it has been in service over 4 years all ready. The heat it is making is absolutly amazing.

It is too dark for my phone to get any legible pics. The stoker looks exactly like my 700. It also has a hopper cast in the floor to remove ashes.
