Development of Cordwood Boiler System
Wood fuel heating has usually been by means of logs, these being produced from woodlands by crosscutting and splitting. This is often in the form of open fires or wood burning stoves. In some cases these provide a full heat supply for the building. This is where the benefits of cordwood can be seen. This paper provides details on how to develop a Cordwood Boiler. Many practical considerations were considered at the design stage. The boiler needed to be simple to run and maintain, to enable it to be marketed as a viable alternative to other types of boiler.
