Hurst Boiler specializes in the design, engineering and manufacturing of wood fired steam and hot water systems. Hurst Wet Fuel and Dry Fuel Configuration Solid Fuel Fired Boilers are specifically designed to utilize a wide range of standard and alternative fuels such as: Wood, Agricultural Back-up, Gas/Oil, Bark, Chipped Mill Waste, Coal, Construction Debris, Hulls, Hog Fuel, Manure, Paper, Rubber, Sawdust, Shavings, & Sludge.
Hurst Boiler provides its clients with the support and expertise necessary to design, fabricate and install complete wood boiler systems from the fuel storage system thru exhaust gas emission mitigation.Various Hybrid Wood Boiler designs are suitable for applications to produce high pressure steam or hot water in ranges from 3,450 - 60,000 lbs/hr (3.4 mmBTU - 60 mmBTU) output from 100 up to 400 PSI.
These systems are designed by HBC to combine the best technologies from the "old school" of biomass combustion and the latest new technologies of advanced combustion control.
The boiler vessel in each of these systems is a two pass hybrid design incorporating a water tubed boiler-type water membrane and a two-pass fire tube scotch marine vessel. These boilers advantages over standard water tube boilers include a much larger steam disengagement area providing high quality steam, larger steam storage capability for quicker response to sudden steam demand, and much larger thermal storage that provides fast demand response times and safer operation.
HBC’s FireBox LPD HF new hand fired systems are particularly suited for operations with extremely low labor cost environments.
The new HBC reciprocating grate-type stoker system permits biomass fuels with a high proportion of incombustibles to be combusted in an efficient manner with the added advantage of automatic de-ashing.
The new HBC chain grate-type stoker system permits a wide range of biomass fuels with high ash contents to be combusted in an efficient manner with the added advantage of automatic de-ashing.
HBC’s Pneumatic Feed Stoker Systems have proven their ability to provide a very low turn-down rate making it particularly suitable for heating applications in lumber dry kilns, veneer log vats, veneer dryers, greenhouses and factories.
With hundreds of these systems in operation, HBC's Under Feed Stoker Systems have proven their ability to provide a very low turn-down rate making it particularly suitable for heating applications in lumber dry kilns, veneer log vats, veneer dryers, greenhouses, and factories.
