This configuration enables these systems to provide a flexible and reliable operation utilizing a consistent "grade" of biomass waste with moisture contents ranging from 30 - 50%. Ash removal is a manual operation.The boiler vessel is a two pass hybrid design incorporating a water tubed boiler-type water membrane and a two-pass fire tube scotch marine vessel.
The Hybrid UF design is suitable for applications to produce high pressure steam or hot water in ranges from 3,450 - 60,000 lbs/hr (3.4 mm BTU - 60 mm BTU) output from 100 up to 900 PSI. This system is designed by HBC to combine the best technologies from the "old school" of biomass combustion and the latest advanced combustion control technologies. his vessel's advantages over standard water tube boilers include 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.
