Burner & Boiler Controls
The burner programmer ensures an automatically controlled programme for start-up, firing, shutdown and restart of the boiler based on measurement of boiler pressure. Necessary interlocks are provided for safe operation.
The water level is controlled through Mobrey type dual controller which is a magnetically operated water level controller of vertical type in a float chamber and is externally mounted on the boiler. One switch of the dual controller operates the electric feed pump on/off. The second switch cuts out or locks out the burner in case of low level of water and at the same time operates a low level alarm.
The boiler is provided with one high pressure cutout switch and one additional pressure switch for high/low, or continuous modulation of operation.
Adequate water and steam spaces enable the boiler to meet fluctuating loads with out appreciable fall in the operating pressure. This also ensures prevention of priming, foaming and carryover of the boiler water into steam pipelines and further ensures steam with high dryness fraction.
The eccentrically located furnace has the following advantages
• Easy accessibility to the outer surface of furnace for inspection and scale removal.
• Possibility of providing single smoke box, which when opened makes all smoke tubes accessible for cleaning.
The burner is mounted directly in font of the furnace, facilitating opening of the front door to clean the tubes without disturbing the burner.
