What Are The Grate Bars?
Grate bars are used in the chain grate boiler to combust, it is an important steam boiler auxiliary part. These bars have varying alloy structures depending on what kind of fuel is used in the boiler.
Due to the infrequent gaps in the grate bar, the air is circulated for combustion.
The grate bar is a replaceable and wearable component. Its service reliability and expense have a significant impact on the capacity of the boiler and the primary cost of the obtained products. One of the most important conditions for a trouble-free boiler operation is the proper structure and raw material used in the grate bars.
The main requirements for the model of grate bars are sufficient to heat environments, high-quality streamlining, and suitable open grate area distribution.
This also delivers a uniform airflow in individual zones of the grate. Under the high-temperature fuel flow chain effect, Grate bars function well. The material used in the manufacturing of grate bars has to be tough and it should not break.

What Is Your Boiler Grate Bar Application?
The purpose of a boiler grate bar is to help and support the solid fuel in the heater. For burning, the grate bars can accept air into the solid fuel. They are designed to do it.
A grate bar base body is set from raw material casting. It is covered with an elevated temp flexible plate on an exterior portion.
As well as this, a hole is implanted in the grate bar bottom body in a corner pointing to the plate. A side hole is implanted in the plate in relation to the grate bar base body all the way through the manufacturing process.
Before the grate bar ground body and protection plate are assembled, this hole is filled at least partially with ceramic fiber shielding material.
There are several options for connecting the plate and the grate bar ground body. In theory, a screw connection, pure compression molding, or something similar is feasible.
However, the cover plate should ideally be linked positively to the grate bar foundation body. Further mechanical interconnect parts, such as screws, can then be eliminated.
A tongue and groove linkage or a bung connection, more ideally a swallowtail connection, connects the grate bar base body in a present invention.
