EP0274688B1 - Automatic firing rate control for a boiler ...

Where the firing rate is defined as between 0 and +1 P Hi is the upper pressure setpoint for the control of the boiler and P Lo is the lower pressure setpoint for the boiler. This arrangement will be graphically disclosed in Fig. 2 but generally indicates that at a low pressure in a typical boiler the firing rate

Sep 21 2018 · Boilers producing saturated steam need only control pressure because the temperature is a thermodynamic property of saturated steam. Figure 2 shows a photo of a burner retrofit for a 50000-lb/hour 150-psi saturated steam boiler with a new burner assembly with combustion safety controls.

Understanding Steam Pressure Controls: Three ... - Boiler

The burner will modulate between low and high firing rates depending on the steam pressure inside the boiler and where the modulation control is set. If the boiler setpoint is 80 PSI and the pressure in the boiler is 81 PSI the modulation control should be sending a signal to the burner to drive to a lower firing rate if it is not already in low fire. If a large demand comes and the steam pressure starts dropping
