Auxiliary Boilers

1-Describe the function of the photo cell detector with respect to the combustion control system. Provide voltage signal for substain burner ignation
2-Why do we shut the manually operated fuel valves prior to performing any work on an automatically fired auxiliary boiler? Prevent fuel leaks
3-What happens when a component fails and the flame safeguard control for an automatically fired auxiliary boiler? Prevent Automatic restart
4-How does the flame scanner output at high compare to it's output at low fire? it's proportional to the flame size
5-What could happen to the feed pump suction if the feed water is to hot? Loss of suction resulting in loss of feed flow to the boiler
6-A successful pre-purge is dependent upon what two components? Damper position and proper air flow
7-Describe what happens to the flame of an automatic boiler when the steam pressure is higher than the normal operating band. Lost of fire, fuel valve shuts down
8-If a boiler is equipped with a low level probe senor, what will happen if the water level drops below the level of the low level probe? Sensor actives alarm, boiler shuts down
9-Why due we maintain pH within the range specified by the manufacture? Reduce corrosion rate
10-If fuel is shutoff due to flame-out on an automatically controlled boiler, what does 46CFR require? require both Visual & Audible alarms for flame- out
11-Describe the fusible plug on a Scotch or auxiliary boiler Located at or near the center of the crown sheet of the combustion chamber

15-Why is it important for safety valves to open and close rapidly? prevent wire drawing (which is the edging of the disk)
16-46CFR61 Requires that auxiliary boilers that have undergone major repairs be hydrostatically tested to what percentage of their operating pressure? 150%
17-Why do we purge boiler furnaces proir to light the fire? prevent explosion by removing combustible gases
18-List the major cause of heavy soot accumulation in auxiliary boilers frequent cycling
