Anyone heard of such?<br>Was there an equipment manufacturer by the name of Wiley? [Actual spelling may be different.]<br>I heard about this in the context of industrial steam locomotives.<br>

I think the Wiley stoker was (is ? ) an industrial stoker, most likely a moving grate type. Most industrial stokers used with stationary boilers bear little resemblance to the locomotive types.<p>The most common locomotive stokers were made by Standard Stoker Company (made the MB, HT, BK, BK-1, HT-1), Duplex Stoker (later made by Standard Stoker), Hanna Stoker, Berkeley Stoker (both Hanna & Berkeley were very similar to Standard), Elvin and Street (last two were early oddballs).<p><br>
