Can I use a different nozzle in my oil burner?
It’s ok to change the nozzle firing rate on oil fired heating equipment, but only within a limited range. Take a look at your oil burner for a sticker provided by the manufacturer that gives the acceptable firing rate or gph range of nozzles for that burner and boiler or furnace or water heater.
What is a Danfoss as nozzle?
Danfoss offers a range of oil nozzles in both brass and steel for standard burner systems. We provide series of special nozzles which are adapted to operating area, media and emission to suit different markets. To ensure quality results, each nozzle is tested 100% electronically for capacity and spray pattern.
How are oil burner nozzles rated?
Nozzles are generally rated at 100 psi, and that is the pressure that most residential-style oil burners run at, but not all. It also has an 80-degree spray angle. That is the angle at which the spray comes out of the nozzle. The smaller the angle, the narrower the spray pattern.
When should I change my oil burner nozzle?
Usually, most parts of the furnace and the nozzle are only checked when there’s a need to service it or carry out repair work, which in most cases is once or twice a year.
What is the difference between A and B nozzle?
The difference between an A nozzle and a B oil burner nozzle is that the B produces a solid rather than hollow core spray pattern. B nozzles are more-often used on larger or industrial oil burners.
What are the three numbers on an oil nozzle?
On oil nozzles, the first number is gallons of oil per hour at 100psi. The second number is the apex angle (30° to 90° arc) of the oil spray cone. The letters designate the fill of the spray cone: A or H = hollow, B or ES = solid, SS = semi-solid, W = multipurpose.
What is a nozzle?
A nozzle is a device designed to control the direction or characteristics of a fluid flow (especially to increase velocity) as it exits (or enters) an enclosed chamber or pipe. A nozzle is often a pipe or tube of varying cross sectional area, and it can be used to direct or modify the flow of a fluid (liquid or gas).
What is the difference between oil burner nozzles?
The difference between an A nozzle and a B oil burner nozzle is that the B produces a solid rather than hollow core spray pattern.
How often should an oil burner be cleaned?
How Often Does My Oil Furnace Need to Be Serviced? You should have your oil furnace serviced at least once a year. If the furnace is used more than average, you’ll want to schedule routine service every six months. A furnace may be used more often in freezing climates or areas with long winters.
How often should a oil boiler be serviced?
every 12 months
Your oil boiler should be serviced by an OFTEC engineer. You should have your boiler serviced every 12 months to check that it’s safe and that it’s running efficiently. When you find a reliable engineer, you can even book your service far in advance or get a reminder when your next service is coming up.
What is a solid oil nozzle?
Product Description. Type B or solid nozzles produce a spray that distributes droplets fairly uniformly throughout the complete pattern. The spray pattern becomes progressively hollower at higher flow rates. Solid nozzles provide smooth ignition and efficient combustion, particularly in larger burners.
What is the difference between an A and B oil burner nozzle?
The difference between an A nozzle and a B oil burner nozzle is that the B produces a solid rather than hollow core spray pattern. B nozzles are more-often used on larger or industrial oil burners. In my opinion an A nozzle will give an easier-to-set and cleaner flame in a small oil burner.
What kind of oil nozzles do Danfoss use?
Danfoss Type HFD/HD & SFD/SD oil nozzles are designed for domestic and commercial high pressure oil burners operating with light or heavy fuel. Hago® Type 4023 anti-drip spray nozzles emit a finely atomized spray mist with a positive cut-off.
How do I use the Danfoss burner scanner app?
The Danfoss Burner Scanner app let you scan error codes on the burner control and guides to a solution on the spot. Use the oil nozzle calculator to calculate capacity, efficiency and size of Danfoss oil nozzles. The calculations are based on standard European heating oil.
What kind of nozzles do I need for a high pressure oil burner?
Hago® Type B humidifying nozzles produce the finest possible atomization with direct water pressure operation. Danfoss Type HFD/HD & SFD/SD oil nozzles are designed for domestic and commercial high pressure oil burners operating with light or heavy fuel.
How often should I service my Danfoss gas burner?
Regular inspection and servicing are essential to ensure that it is running reliably and at optimum efficiency. Danfoss recommends changing the nozzle once a year for the benefit of the environment and operating performance. A well-adjusted burner can reduce oil consumption by as much as 10%.
