An FAQ Guide For Travelling Grate Stoker
Are the fuel costs for your boiler increasing day by day? Then, you must install a travelling grate stoker. This equipment will give you control over input fuel and greatly reduce fuel costs. With this grate stoker, you don’t need any labor to feed the fuel constantly. It will feed the boiler automatically for you.
The combustion in the travelling grate stoker happens on the grate. But what is a grate in a boiler? A grate is a chain that serves as the fuel bed for combustion. It enables the ventilation of air to aid in the burning. Let’s learn more about travelling grate and some other types of stokers:
Boiler Stoker: What Is It?
A boiler stoker is a boiler’s mechanical part that allows automatic fuel feeding. The fuel may be coal, biomass, or any other solid fuel. A stoker also includes a passage for air supply to help better combustion. It’s technology helpful for saving fuel and money because it allows you to control fuel amount.
A best travelling grate stoker controls the burning rate and removes the ash as well. Boiler stokers may pour the fuel in the furnace directly or on the grate in case of a travelling grate stoker. The boiler then ignites the fuel, and combustion starts. You can control the rate of burning by controlling the speed of the grate.
Advantages and Disadvantages of a Boiler Stoker
Following are the advantages of a boiler stoker:
- You can use the stoker to fuel all kinds of solid fuels to the furnace.
- It provides the air supply for better burning of the fuel.
- The air supply from below also helps in ash cooling.
- It also disposes of the ash by breaking it into small pieces.
- Lower fuel consumption.
- It is very convenient for handling varying loads of fuel.
- Low maintenance cost.
- Simple construction.
- It is low cost.
The disadvantages of the boiler stoker are:
- The stoker is not useful for large lumps of coal.
- It needs a dust cleaning system.
- It requires a lot of space.
What Types Of Stokers Are Compatible With Coal Firing?
Several types of stokers make firing coal in the furnace easier. Some of them are listed below, along with their description:
Travelling Grate Stoker
A travelling grate stoker consists of a chain or grate that serves as the fuel bed for burning. The chain moves from one side of the furnace to the other with the help of pulleys. An electric motor provides the power for the movement of the chain. Travelling grate stoker is also called chain grate stoker.
The stoker pours the fuel on the grate, where it ignites. There is a passage in the travelling grate stoker that provides variable fresh air to aid in the process of combustion. You can control the speed of the chain, feeding rate, and spin speed by using the coal grate for effective combustion.
In this type of stoker, the stoker firing of the fuel on the combustion bed is continuous. It uses the mechanism of travelling grate stoker and vibrating stoker. This enables the stoker to handle load fluctuations efficiently. The combustion of fine particles happens in an unstable suspension mode. At the same time, the stoker spreads the large lumps of fuel evenly on the bed for burning.
A spreader stoker boiler also supplies the primary and secondary combustion air. The primary air helps in the fuel burning. On the other hand, the secondary air assists in the burning of fine particles above the grate. For high content fuels, the boiler supplies heated primary and secondary combustion air.
The vibrating stoker consists of a water-cooled matrix. The fuel, for instance, coal or biomass, moves on the grate. The grate vibrates at an amplitude of about 3mm for 5 seconds every 2 minutes. This vibrating motion of the grate scatters the solid fuel over the grate evenly and removes the ash as it moves forward to the other end. You can control the feed rate by controlling the period of the vibrations.
The vibrating travelling grate stoker is very efficient in the case of biomass fuels. It has a low carbon burnout rate as well. This type of stoker also has a cooling system that reduces the heat damage done to the grate. Moreover, it requires less maintenance as it has fewer moving parts.
In an underfeed stoker, the fuel enters from beneath the grate using retorts. Then, the fuel moves upward with the help of a hopper in the furnace. The fresh air enters in the same direction as the fuel. It gets in contact with the coal, and the coal ignites and starts burning.
Although it is pretty big, the underfeed stoker has high thermal efficiency. It performs well for any type of fuel, variable loads, and cleans the grate itself. Moreover, the combustion in the underfeed stoker is smoke-free.
In this stoker type, the fuel and the combustion air enter the furnace from different directions. The fuel hopper pours the coal into the furnace from above. In contrast, the air enters from below the grate. The air absorbs the heat from the grate and gets preheated.
The travelling grate stoker and spreader stoker boiler use the mechanism of overfeed stoker. This mechanism is not efficient for handling big lumps of fuel. But it can be quite helpful for variable loads.
How Does Travelling Grate Stoker Work?
The travelling grate stoker working principle includes the following three steps:
1. Fuel Feeding
In a travelling grate stoker, the fuel hopper puts the coal into the furnace on the grate on one end. As the grate moves horizontally, the fuel ignites and starts burning. You can control the bed thickness, feeding speed of the travelling grate stoker. You need to make sure that there are no big chunks of fuel on the grate. Otherwise, they will not burn completely and will go to waste.
2. Combustion Process
As the grate feeds the fuel, the burning starts. The air supply needed for the combustion comes from below the grate. Smaller pieces burn in suspension. On the other hand, the larger particles burn in a high temperature, fast-burning coal layer beneath the grate.
3. Ash Handling
As the grate moves to the other end, residues from the combustion or ash form in the grate. The travelling grate stoker has an ash handling system that collects the ash at the end and passes it through an economizer. The economizer absorbs the remaining heat from the ash and uses it to heat the incoming air.
What Is The Working Principle Of Travelling Grate Boiler?
With the travelling grate stoker system, the steam boilers generate the maximum amount of steam. The steam boilers combined with the stoker system form a bigger hybrid vessel. The working principle of traveling grate boiler has the following steps:
The first step is to feed fuel to the boiler. The hopper pours the fuel on the moving grate from above for an overfeed travelling grate stoker. The boiler allows you to control the amount of fuel feeding and the speed of the grate for getting the required amount of output.
When the fuel burns, it emits hot flue gases. The air provides the oxygen necessary for the combustion process. As a result, it generates by-product gases such as CO2, N2, and O2. Since the hot flue gases have a low density, they rise to the water tubes.
After reaching the water tubes, the hot flue gases transfer their heat to water. As a result, the water converts into steam. After heat transfer, the exhaust gases still hold some heat. So, we use economizers to absorb that heat and warm the feed water. It helps enhance the boiler’s thermal efficiency even more.
Also, due to a closed, controlled design, the boiler produces steam at high pressures and temperatures. As a result, we fulfill industries’ high temperature and pressure needs.
When the fuel burns entirely on the grate, its ashes are disposed of at the grate’s end. The system extracts the remaining heat from the ash and then disposes the ash or recycles it.
What Is Ash Handling System?
The ash handling system collects and stores or recycles the residues left behind in the combustion processes. A best travelling grate stoker always has an efficient ash handling system. Here are its types:
Fly Ash Disposal System
Fly ash is the ash that generates along with the flue gases. They are fine particles that suspend in the air along with other gases. The particles of the fly ash go upward with the flue gases. Filters and exhaust systems remove the fly ash using the process of electrostatics. The ash becomes charged with either positive or negative. Then the opposite charge attracts it outward and goes into fly ash hopper.
Bottom Ash Handling
The bottom ash is the residue that collects on the grate where the fuel burns. They fall into the collector at the grate’s end. Afterward, it cools down by submerging in water. Next, it moves to the grinder. The grinder crushes the ash into small chunks that are later recycled.
Which Are The Best Grate Stokers?
Several types of boiler stokers are available in the market. An overfeed stoker is the best for variable loads but not suitable for large-size fuels. On the other hand, a vibrating stoker is self-cleaning. Although combustion of underfeed stokers is smoke-free, they require more space and have a high initial cost.
But the travelling grate stoker is the best in the market that covers all the areas. They are low-cost and need less maintenance than other stokers. Plus, it is best for load fluctuations and offers variable combustion air. And they can clean themselves and remove waste automatically.
