1. Listed clearances comply with American National Standard ANSI/NFPA 31, Installation of Oil Burning Equipment. 2. RSA boilers can be installed in rooms with clearances from combustible material as listed above. Listed clearances can not be reduced for alcove or closet installations.
. REMOVAL OF BOILER. 1. Remove, all boiler to skid, hold down fasteners. Refer to Figure 3. 2. Carefully walk boiler to the edge of skid. Tilt the boiler back, allowing an edge to rest on the floor, and remove the skid.
Oxyge n c onta mination of boi ler water will cause corrosion of iron a nd s te el boiler c ompone nts , and can lead to boiler failure. Burnham's Standard Warranty does not cover problems caused by oxy ge n contamination of boiler water or scale (lime ) bui ld-up c aused by freque nt addition of w ater.

That probably means that the stack temperature from the new boiler will be lower than that from the old boiler and with less room air being drawn up the chimney to dilute the stack gases. The combina-...
Positively assure all electrical connecti ons are unpow ered before attempting installation or service of elec tric al components or connections of the boiler or bui lding. Lock out all ele ctrical boxes wi th pa dlock once power is turned off.
The Burnham EC50 00 Control includes a water temperature sensor. Mount this sensor to the sys te m s upply piping. 8. Burnham EC5000 Circulator Zoned System – Refer to Figure 19 of this manual for the electrical diagram for this type of system. Wire the system as indicated in that diagram.
VI. Oil Piping . General. 1. Use flexible oil line(s) so that burner can be removed without disconnecting the oil supply. 2. A supply line fuel oil filter is recommended as a minimum for all firing rates but a pleated paper fuel oil filter is recommended for the lowest firing rate application to prevent nozzle fouling.

12 psig. 10. Open isolation valve in boiler supply piping. 11. Remove hose from bib cock. CONFIRM that the boiler and system have no water leaks. . CHECK CONTROLS, WIRING AND BURNER to be sure that all connections are tight and burner is rigid.
ADJUST OIL PRESSURE 1. Locate oil pressure adjusting screw and turn screw until Pressure Gauge reads the correct pump pressure required for the specific boiler. Refer to table 4 & 4A. 2. DO NOT REMOVE PRESSURE GAUGE until later.
It chills the flame, causes smoke, and allows unburned fuel to pass through the combustion chamber and clog the flueways of the boiler. h. COLD OIL— If the oil temperature approach- ing the fuel pump is 40°F or lower, poor combustion or delayed ignition may result.
Both can result in reduced boiler life. The accumulation of sediment can eventually isolate the water from contacting the steel. When this happens the steel in that area gets extremely hot and eventually cracks.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR SHIELD REQUIRED FOR COMBUSTIBLE FLOOR This shield for combustible floors is intended for use only with the following Burnham oil-fired boilers: Use Part Number 6183504 for the following models: RSA(H)85 ADDS 4-3/16” TO BOILER HEIGHT Use Part Number 6183505 for the following models: RSA170 ADDS 5-3/8”...
Assemble the boiler in reverse order. Units should be cleaned at least once a year, preferably at the end of each heating season. It is not necessary to remove burner to clean boiler. Brush, scrape, or vacuum from top. Figure 25: Cleaning of RSA Boiler off.
