Feb. 27, 2009: Field Controls Offers Tips on Oil-to-Gas Burner Conversion
According to the company, a gas-fired appliance would normally call for the installation of a draft hood in place of the existing barometric draft control. The new Field Report recommends replacing the existing draft control with a double-acting draft control and a blocked-vent thermal safety switch.
“This system is not only easier and faster to install, it is also safer and more efficient,” said the company. “The double acting draft control keeps the over-fire draft consistent, enhancing burner efficiency.”
The control is designed to respond to changes in barometric pressure, updrafts, and downdrafts. The blocked vent switch detects flue spillage and automatically shuts the burner down until the blockage can be resolved.
