Last year I obtained a 1989 CB700-30-150# package boiler. It is set up to operate with natural gas and has a CB70 control. From what I was told the boiler was installed to provide process steam during the summer when a larger boiler was offline. It was found that this boiler was not large enough and was subsequenly laid up wet for several years before being taken out. I don't think it ever had a fire in it as the shop marks are still visible inside the combustion chamber.
My application for the boiler is to provide steam on an occasional basis to operate a stationary steam engine at an industrial museum. I don't have much knowlege about these things and am looking for a bit of general advice before I call up a CB rep.
How practical would it be to convert the boiler to burn propane instead of natural gas? I don't have natual gas at the location where I wish to use the boiler but do have plenty of propane available.
Is the CB70 control still practical to use?
Depending upon what I learn about the boiler will help me decide if its worth the effort to get it operational of it I am just throwing my money down a hole. Thanks
