Abstract: The invention relates to solid fuel units having a fuel supply chamber wherein the fuel to be sent for combustion to the combustion region found in the body is placed and the feed mechanism carrying the solid fuel found in the chamber forward. It is characterized in that it includes a main burning block having a fuel and air cell connected to the solid fuel supply chamber and air outlet vents formed on the external wall surface. A preventive surface is positioned on the main burning block external wall surface in a way that it would form a closed volume in a certain distance.
Abstract: A feed device for a granular firing product for furnaces with a minimum capacity of 1 kW, includes a conveyor screw disposed in a pipe for conveying a granular firing product. A central screw axis pipe has an outer wall with a volution mounted thereon and with the conveyor screw disposed in the pipe so that it can rotate and which is at least a quarter of the pipe diameter. The screw pipe axis has a conical shape at its tip, where a circular grating with a central circular hole and air feed openings on the outer region of the grating are horizontally disposed. The central circular hole is smaller than the diameter of the conveyor screw and a conically expanding funnel-shaped wall is guided downwardly from its edge as a sliding wall for a firing product to be conveyed. The conically expanding funnel-shaped wall runs substantially parallel to the cone of the upper end of the screw axis.

Abstract: A stoker grate for circulating a combustible material includes a stationary grate sheet support and a moveable grate sheet support fitting with prop rolls on the stationary grate sheet support. The moveable grate sheet support includes a pair of moveable grate sheet supports opposed to each other and another pair of arc-shaped moveable grate sheet supports opposed to each other to form a long annular-shaped assembled support, stationary grate sheets fitting with mounting transverse beams of the stationary grate sheet support, moveable grate sheets fitting with mounting transverse beams of the moveable grate sheet support, the moveable grate sheets and the stationary grate sheets being disposed alternatingly, and a transmission unit. The driving moveable grate sheet support is hinged to the adjacent driven moveable grate sheet support and the driven moveable grate sheet supports are hinged to each other.
Abstract: A method of converting animal litter biomass into useful energy includes the steps of both combusting and pyrolising the biomass, of mixing the resultant combustible gas from the pyrolysis step with the gases from the combustion step, of igniting the mixture of gases ad and feeding the hot mixture of gases to a thermal recuperator; and apparatus therefor.
Abstract: The present invention can provide a method for combustion treatment capable of efficiently treating combustible waste, and a combustion treatment apparatus capable of realizing such a method. The present invention can further provide a method for combustion treatment capable of efficiently treating even combustible waste containing a generation source of a volatile hazardous component, and a combustion treatment apparatus capable of realizing this. Furthermore, the present invention can provide a method for combustion treatment capable of efficiently recovering and making effective use of the heat of an exhaust gas discharged during a treatment of combustible waste, and a combustion treatment apparatus capable of realizing this. The aforementioned method for combustion treatment is a method for treating combustible waste, in which the combustible waste is subjected to combustion treatment in a rotary hearth furnace.
Abstract: The invention relates to a feed-in device for fuel in a fire-place with plane grate (5). The feed-in occurs through an opening (60) in the grate and comprises a tubular straight passageway (34), which extends upward from below to the opening (60), so that the center line of the passageway (34) forms an angle of 20.degree.-45.degree. to the surface of the grate (5) and that the opening (60) is displaced to the circumference of the grate (5).
Abstract: A drum-shaped grate of an incinerator includes a plurality of cylindrical drums, the grate covering of which is formed of a plurality of suspended middle grate bars which are combined in segments and arrested by fixed grate bars. The adjacent grate bars in the circular direction are suspended on bar carriers and the lateral faces of each two adjacent grate bars are spaced from each other by spacers. The surfaces of the spacers positioned between each two adjacent grate bars and abutting against each other are flat and smooth. Due to a possible relative displacement of the middle grate bars in their longitudinal direction owing to the placing of the spacers between the adjacent bars a clogging of the air slots formed between the grate bars would be prevented.

Abstract: A coal burning apparatus actuated by a stoker of the underfeed type includes a burner body formed of a plurality of vertically stacked rings with spaces between the rings extending horizontally to form a tuyere. A tuyere is easily made by stacking rings onto a burner base in a surrounding relationship to the stoker throat. A rotating ash ring is mounted to the exterior of the tuyere for disposing ashes outwardly beyond the periphery of the burner so that they may fall into a provided ash box. The burner air for sustaining combustion is provided to the interior of the tuyere from one of a pair of provided ports in the burner base. The alternative location of the air ports permit the air duct for providing combustion air to be extended from either end of the burner assembly.
Abstract: An ash removal apparatus for a burner which produces ash moved through a discharge passage in the floor of the burner, including a circumferential ash-removing opening surrounding the grate of the burner, with the surfaces forming the opening being circumferentially progressively varied in spacing to crush and pass clinkers through the opening and out the discharge passage.
