Base Insulation

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'm looking for some information regarding the one inch "Targetwall" insulation for the base of the 520 boiler. Mine is missing all three pieces that go in the base. Does anyone know the dimensions with cut outs? Does anyone have any photos of the inside of the base to show this? Thanks!

This is the one that has the oil burner on the side, not that I ever plan on using it at current oil prices. This boiler did have the insulation at one time. The insulation was removed when it was taken out of a basement due to it being wet.

Well if you are not going to use the oil gun then don't worry about You will have to cut out for the Auger tube and the air
tube are the 6 nails still in the base two for each piece you will need the 6 metel Sq tabs to hold the Pieces onto the nailes

The one that is in the front above the ash door is 9 1/4 " x 23 1/2 " 3/4 "thick
The other two one on each side is 12 x 23 1/2 "x 3/4' thick

EFM has an oil manual on their site that shows the dimensions of these pieces with the cutouts. You can find it here.
