What are the auxiliary components of the chain grate stoker? What are their structures and functions?

The chain grate stoker has 4 main parts. Check them follow and their structures, functions.

I. Adjustable tensioning device for chain grate stoker

The adjustable tensioning device of the chain grate stoker boiler is generally made of the bearing of the front shaft of the grate. Adjust the structure of the screw.

Its main function is to adjust the tightness of the grate and the parallelism of the front and rear axles of the chain grate stoker.
In order not to arch the chain grate stoker during operation, the grate must have a certain degree of tension.

When the grate is affected by various factors during installation or operation, adjust the front and rear axles of the grate to ensure safe and stable operation. Beam type, scale type grate still needs to rely on deadweight tensioning.

II. Slag retaining device

Slag retaining device has two main functions:
First, in order not to make slag fall into the rear shaft open between the grate piece and extend the slag stay on the grate time, easy to burn up the slag, that is, “block slag” role;

The second is to prevent the leakage of air in the slag well at the end of the boiler and improve the thermal efficiency of the boiler.

There are two common slag retaining devices on the chain grate stoker diagram:

1. Eagle iron.

It is located at the end of the chain grate is about to turn, shaped like an eagle beak, made of cast iron, hence the name.

It has the above first function, but can not prevent the tail air leakage, so its thermal efficiency is poor. Because of its simple structure, convenient manufacturing, and not easy to break down, it has been widely used.

Check to follow the picture in the rear end for the eagle iron.

2, slag pendulum.

The slag stop swing is installed above the end of the chain grate, and it has two functions of the above slag stop device. Therefore, boiler efficiency can be improved.

However, its disadvantage is that its structure is relatively complex, and it is not used at the right time. It is easy to form slag at the back of the grate and is often burned out. A more detailed introduction about the working principle of grate can refer to why the boiler grate burnout?

III. Side sealing device to ensure the flexible movement of the chain grate.

A certain gap must be left between the grate and the stationary frame (wallboard) on both sides, so as to avoid mutual friction and hinder the operation of the grate. But the clearance must not be too big, as far as possible to avoid air leakage into the furnace.

Worse combustion in the furnace, reduce the thermal efficiency of the boiler.
Therefore, a reliable side seal device must be used to minimize air leakage. The specific structure of the side seal device of grate may be slightly different, and its types are various, such as ash seal type side seal, labyrinth type side seal, etc.,

the principle of which is to avoid air leakage as far as possible without hindering the operation of the grate.

IV.The Anti-coke box is located on both sides of the grate and its interior is communicated with cooling water.

It is the lower header of the water wall pipe and part of the boiler circulation system.

Its anti-coke function is to protect the furnace wall from high-temperature wear and erosion.

At the same time, it can also avoid sticking to the sidewall of the fire bed and ensure the normal combustion in the furnace and the normal operation of the chain grate stoker diagram.

Check the chain grate stoker diagram for reference.
