Most FM units are a D-type boiler design and have the furnace on one side and boiler bank on the other, separated by a baffle wall.
In a D-type unit, firing is parallel to the drums toward the rear wall where the gas turns 180 degrees and flows frontward to the gas outlet.
In addition to burning oil and natural gas, these units can burn a variety of gaseous and liquid fuels such as landfill gas, refinery gas and various waste liquid fuels.
