About 4 years ago I purchased a kit to burn corn for heat. It included a hopper, an auger feed, a combustion blower and a bottom feed burn pot. I installed this unit in a HS Tarm OT50 wood/coal combo oil boiler. Everything was fine until an ethanol plant went up in my backyard sucking up all the corn everyone can grow. Today the price is 5.25 compared to 2.25 when I initially installed.
My question is can I use this same unit, which was designed after a bottom feed coal stoker, to burn rice coal in?
Any safety concerns, such as burn back through the auger system?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
