Today on The Boiling Point we are joined again by Jude Wolf, one of our Boiler University teachers. Jude is here to talk about Honeywell pressure controls and what these pressure controls actually do for your boiler.
They go by many names: Christmas Tree, Operations Controls, etc. but they all do the same thing: control the boiler's operations. They shut down the boiler when steam pressure limits are made as well as kick the burner on to maintain pressure under a load. In the video, Jude explains the four types of pressure controls and what function they serve. Having your controls set properly is important to making sure the boiler functions as it should.
Jude looks closely at the following:
- Water level control
- Operating control
- Firing rate controller
Watch the video below for more in-depth discussion on boiler pressure controls.
