Figure 3-11 illustrates the steps involved in a typical coal feed adjustment. Their order (in sequence) is as follows:
1. Select the proper amount of coal feed for the furnace (refer to the coal feed chart provided by the stoker manufacturer).
2. When the proper coal feed is selected, the opposite side of the pointer indicates the proper air setting (see Figure 3-11A).
3. When the coal meter is set on proper coal feed, lock the meter with a wrench at the locknut shown (see Figure 3-11B).
