In Reply to: Boiler filling up with water posted by David MacMillan on November 08, 2006 at 11:09:05:
: I am have trouble with a steam boiler filling up with water. It has been serviced by a professional. We have replaced steam traps but the problem still occurs. It is a low pressure Kewanee boiler,
: 6 years old. What is my solution?
A few possibilities. If this boiler shares a common header with other steam boilers condensation in the connecting piing will tend to flood the idle boiler(s).
A defective automatic feeder could also result in flooding.
If this boiler is equiped with an internal tankless or feeds a steam to water heat exchanger a leak in either will result in a flooded steam boiler.
