Abstract This paper discusses the results of analytical and experimental studies to evaluate the practicality of using coal-oil mixtures as an alternate to fuel oil to fire packaged firetube boilers. The work of several investigators, as well as the work done by Cleaver-Brooks, is reviewed and summarized. Modification of the burner nozzle and fuel train were found to be necessary. Ignition characteristics were satisfactory and a stable flame was obtained. However, deposition of molten slag is shown to be a major limitation to using COM as a fuel for existing firetube boilers.
