Timer for EFM 520

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

Dayton Intermatic, available from Grainger is model C8835. It is not as good as the Wilburt, but a little cheaper. The Wilburt timer is efm #71347. Look on the FAQ in the announcements for dealers who sell direct. The Wilburt has all separately available parts, unlike the Intermatic, which is a throwaway.

The Wilburt timer for a Steam stoker is efm #71339.
