: I have two types of steam.
: Steam 1. at 250 deg C superheated.
: Steam 2. at 220 deg C saturated.
: What are the issues to be watched, if we switch from steam 1 to steam 2 for the purpose of atomising an oil burner.
If your switching from one source of atomizing steam to another.. the largest issue will be draining the condensate out of the on coming steam line, if you get a slug of water through your burner barrel, you'll kill the fire. If the fire has been killed a time or 2 switching them, and you don't have a drain, attach a line and valves from a steam strainer. If both the superheated and the saturated steam are the same pressure, you should be able to cross over something like this w/o putting out the fire... Drain the oncoming line, let the steam blow out of it hard.. and let the line warm up.. start cracking the inlet valves and make sure you don't put the fire out.. and slowly open it.. if alls well.. secure the other.. gl..
