Coalnewbie, The Losch is used in our machine shop. It is a rice stoker that puts out about 1.5m BTUS . We burn 40 tons of coal a year through that unit. We have an enclosed bin that houses our coal in the warmth, and the stoker is auger fed from the bin to the stoker unit's feed hopper.
Currently I am trying to figure out my vernoisse hand fired unit in my house. I am burning nut coal in that specific machine. The small amount of Nut that I have acquired has a fairly large quantity of fines in it, and I suspect that is causing me problems as well as me being new to a hand fired unit.
