Wood Fired Boilers
Cochran have developed a range of three pass horizontal wet back boilers to meet the special demands of customers who have access to wood and wood based biomass for use as fuel. Every wood fired Cochran boiler has been designed to combine high efficiency with the most cost-effective use of fuel.
Wood firing in its various forms requires an individualised approach to the boiler’s design reflecting the widely varying calorific values, moisture content and ashing levels of the fuel. As a result every boiler is tailored to meet client’s unique needs by Cochran using state-of-the-art CAD technology. Cochran Wood Fired Boilers can also be supplied with oil or gas burners as a backup energy source, ensuring sufficient steam is raised even when the wood primary fuel is unavailable.
