Pre and post-purge is part of the burning cycle. This is done to sweep the interior of combustibles so the only source of flame is from the air-fuel mixture at the burner. Unburned fuel can continue to evaporate and mix as dust in the interior after the burning cycle; the purge reduces the risk of uncontrolled ignition and explosion.
