Combustioneer boiler/furnace

Combustioneer boiler/furnace

PostBy: e.alleg On: Wed Dec 19, 2007 10:00 pm

I was reading an old coal book "heating with coal" from about 1980, it mentions "Combustioneer" brand boilers and furnaces and they use a "S20" stoker which is sold separate from the furnace or boiler, they are rated at 186,000 BTU's. From the pictures the S20 looks exactly the same as the EFM S20 stoker, so for those shopping for a good boiler or furnace I'll bet Combustioneer underfeed units are probably the same as the EFM, but I could be wrong.

I wonder if EFM private labeled the stoker from Combustioneer? The Combustioneer units were designed for bituminous coal only, and EFM would be the opposite. But, EFM could have purchased the Combustioneer unit to get a wider product availability.

Combustioneer discontinued the furnaces, boilers, and the S20 stoker. The S30 is the smallest they manufacture now. The S30 is also very similar to GregL's Iron Fireman unit, which was a bituminous burning stoker. However, Greg didn't have a lot of luck burning bitumninous in it and modified it to successfully burn anthracite instead, which is the subject of an older thread around here somewhere.

I have a post over in the Bituminous section with a some information on what's available from Combustioneer and a boiler that works well with the S30 stoker unit. It's a bit of a monster, but it ought to make a nice setup for someone (like me) that has access to cheap bituminous.
