One should note that the chemical treatment of a sectional boiler is very critical. In as much as you need great make up water quality and you do not want tp percipitate any solids. Ph is also important. Make sure that you do not have any phospate in the boiler water as treatment..this could allow for the formation of sludge. Hope this helps...
: A new Burnham steam boiler one of my clients purchased has issues. The boiler water appears clean and all tests show the proper amount of chemical but the water cavitates and cuts the boiler off several times daily. The previous boiler never cut off and always functioned well on the water side. A boil out was done at time of installation and the boiler has been flushed many times. Is this common with these cast iron boilers? Can anyone offer a suggestion????????
