MULTI-FUEL COAL - WOOD BOILERS BY ALTERNATE HEATING SYSTEMS



Alternate Heating Systems Coal-Wood Multi-Fuel Boiler

The air-cooled Rolla-Grate triangular rotary grate system is the heart of the Alternate Heating Systems Coal-Wood Multi-Fuel Boiler. This remarkable system adjusts to maximize burning efficiency for each fuel and to provide a convenient method of removing expended ash from the boiler's firebox. The triangular grate design is made with a hollow core allowing airflow via convection in order to keep the grate cool. This cooling effect prevents warping of the grate components. Depending upon the model purchased there is a minimum of three grates. The boiler is designed so that each grate can be shaken or rotated individually so that ash can be removed only from areas where expended fuel has built up.
Refractory-lined baffling diverts the exhaust through the boiler in order to reclaim as much heat as possible before the combusted exhaust goes out the chimney. Water tubes located beneath the refractory-lined baffle serve to capture this additional heat.



Standard Equipment On All AHS Multi-Fuel Boilers:
  • Rolla-Grate™ Rotary Grate System
    Opening can be increased from nearly closed to large opening for burning coal
  • Large Loading Door
    Full gasket for maximum efficiency
  • Smoke Flap
  • Water Cooled Baffles
  • Forced Draft Fan
  • Large Removable Ash Pan
  • Dual Draft System
    Through-the-door draft system for burning wood. Below-grate draft system for burning coal.
  • Automatic Draft Control
  • Firebrick Lined Firebox
  • Hydro Tested to 60lbs PSI
  • Constructed of 1/4" Steel Plate Throughout vessel
  • Honeywell Circulator Control Aquastat
  • Temperature/Pressure Gauge

Producing More BTU's
If more BTU's are needed than the maximum produced by one of our boilers, then two or more boilers may be used together to produce the amount of BTU's needed.

Optional Equipment on AHS Multi-Fuel Boilers:

  • Riello Oil Burner. The Riello oil burner option is an excellent choice for burning oil in combination with burning other fuels - it is designed to let almost no air into the combustion chamber when not burning oil.
  • Domestic coil - factory installed (5 Gal. per min. max. output.)
  • Auto switch over
  • Options for Burning Bituminous (Soft) Coal:
    - Soft coal linkage kit
