Feeder For Low Quality Coal
The Detroit Underflow Fuel Distributor allows fuel switching from eastern stoker coal to less expensive and/or western coal. The feeder design combines air assist with an underthrow rotor mechanism. The underflow distributor discharges the fuel on the underside of the rotor, enabling the blades to contact the coal. This feature, in conjunction with the pneumatic distributor plate, is designed to facilitate a horizontal trajectory of the fuel, distributing fine particles more consistently onto the bed area.
The Underthrow is primarily used for coal distribution with spreader stokers, and can be retrofitted to virtually any spreader stoker application. It can also be used with fluid bed boilers and to distribute other solid materials of similar size.
