: we have a weil mclain sectional boiler with gasses infiltrating out the seams of the sections giving off extremely high co levels. we found this out with a smoke test. what methods of sealing is thereof the sections ? it is a 3 mil btu steam boiler. no water leaks. we performed a hydronic test.
Most sectional cast iron boilers rely on a non asbestos rope gasket to seal between the secions. Either the rope is improperly installed or has "blown" out as a result of a puff back/ delayed ignition, etc. High CO levels are also an indication that the combustion is not properly set. Rich and for that matter lean fuel /air mixtures can produce excessive amounts of CO.
