Coal Dust is used in many metal processing plants to fire the furnaces. On an industrial scale, the burning of coal dust has been shown to be more advantageous than burning chunked coal. However, the burning of coal dust on a smaller scale, such as fuel for residential cooking, has yet to be accomplished. The current project demonstrates a unique strategy to feed dust for such things as residential cooking, and other potential uses. A cylinder that can be filled and refilled is the main feature of the apparatus. Many trial runs will be made with the apparatus which will include three different particle size ranges.
