    In order to encourage a transition from oil to wood pellet heating in Maine homes, Maine Energy Systems desires that an automated ash removal system be designed for their wood pellet boilers. This project employs the use of both traditional and axiomatic design methods to develop an ash removal system for the MESys 6000c wood pellet boiler. Two solutions were developed for Maine Energy Systems using various design techniques. These solutions were prototyped, tested, and revised, resulting in recommendations made to Maine Energy Systems.
