Hmmm. I dunno, I don't think that's gonna work.. The ash you are weighing didn't come from the same coal that was measured into the hopper. The coal in the coal bed currently burning could be taking up less space since its partially
burned already.. I think its throwing off your conclusion. If you measured ash weight compared to coal weight over lets say a week, then yeah I think you would get a better ratio. My two cents
But I missed the Holiday Inn seminar too....
