Fröling 320kW Turbomat equipped with high temperature cast iron step grate inside the combustion chamber. Combustion is efficiently controlled from the Fröling H3000 Lambdatronic PLC control system. Primary, Secondary and Tertiary air are injected at separate combustion areas via rotary slide valves and modulating actuators.

Combustion air is drawn from between the outer panels and the insulation of boiler casing reducing the heat losses from the boiler and preheating the combustion air. The air then circulates around the outside of the fire brick preventing the outside of the fire brick from overheating and further preheating the combustion air for higher efficiency combustion before it’s injected into the combustion chamber.

The heat exchanger of the Fröling Turbomat is a vertical 4 pass exchanger with integrated dust separator. The heat exchanger is equipped with automatic cleaning system. Automatic ash removal via auger transports fly ash from below the heat exchanger to 2 30 litre ash storage containers.

Fuel feed system
The system consists of spring agitator system and feed auger from where the boiler control unit adjusts the rate of feeding into the combustion chamber.
