EFM Stocker Motor Thermal Reset Kicking Off Happened Three

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.

When I assembled my stoker I coated the shafts with synthetic grease, the stuff engine builders use to prevent wear on assembly. After a full winter the shafts are still coated with the grease. I also coated the gears and every moving part. It is more messy than a drop of oil but it makes the stoker really quiet.
Burning coal is definitely worth the extra work involved.
"Good enough" is not good enough.
