Was going to put this in the boiler section but those guys already know this. A very well done animation of inside how a coal boiler works. Enjoy.

Pretty cool, Paul, but was disappointed. Was a little short. Must not be a lot to them. :lol:

That is awesome...did you notice the pressed coal oval briquettes? No fines, no over or under size lumps. Imagine how combustion air moves with consistent coal sizing all day everyday...
