AA-130 Motor Pulley Sizes

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.

I like your acceptance of 'down home' logic!!! You would make a terrible engineer.....they HAVE to CONTROL ever damned BTU produced, no matter what the coast is! :woot: :rofl: :doh: :nono: :baby:

So----- my newly aquired AA130 may idle most of the winter if I used 2.5 cords of wood to heat
2700 sf of a well insulated home built in 2002. Heated with a radiant wood stove in the
basement.....
Never burned coal. I bought the AA cause of the low BTU output idling, [ 6 to 12 lb per day sound right ??? ]
for the summer burn of DHW. Should I plumb in a loop for a hot water core to blow air in the clothes
drier too?. :idea: Please don't give me more work.

Forget the 6 to 12 lbs a day in the winter....fantasy land. AA's and ahs'S 'LOVE TO PERFORM LIKE THE OLD gm 2 CYCLE DIESELS'. A 6-71 cranking away.... it STILL has to have some load...so you are not released from the library yet!! More homework before you are freaking out with the PRV puking all the time during no demand times. If you have all copper piping, you will get used to a severe banging as it goes past 250 degrees...... :!: :!:

ACK.. Thanks.. On the issue of load dumping during extended idle with this AA130, Are you recommending that I put in a dump zone somehow? I will be running over the summer for DHW. I have a DHW coil in the boiler I am not using since I have
a IWH. Any thoughts or suggestions on using that coil? :?: :idea: Run a small pipe to preheat a percentage of the DHW before it enters the IWH?.. HHMM, more plumbing....

Try burning buck to reduce output.
