What is you feed rate set at that will determine how many lbs of coal per hr your burning and how many times does it fire to make heat in a day.The more coal that you burn the more ash you will get . You can base there coal ash content between 10 to 12 % If you figure out how many lbs of coal your burning . Then weigh the ash tube subtract the tube
weight. Take that Number and divide it in to the coal weight you will have your ash content %
