Whelen Engineering – Charlestown, NH
Boiler System #3 Burning PDCs
Project Description:
 Goals: To virtually eliminate all burning of fuel oil on the Whelen campus in Charlestown, NH
by converting to boilers that burn Precision Dry Wood Chips, a locally produced biomass fuel
manufactured by Froling Energy in Peterborough.
 This is the largest of the 3
biomass boiler rooms built
on the campus since 2014.
 The low cost of PDCs
made this project viable!
The biomass boiler system in
Whelen #3::
 2– Viessmann Vitoflex 300
RF Model KPT-540 Dry
Chip/Pellet Boilers, each of
these has a net output of
1.84 million BTU/hr. Total =
3.68 million BTU/hr.
 Each interior storage silo
holds 36 tons of Froling
Energy’s PDCs (for a total
storage capacity of 72 tons

 Above: Viesmann’s Ecotronic
Control panel
 Left: De-ashing is automatic,
into roll-away bins tied to the
combustion chamber and at flue gas de-duster.
