Convert Peerless EC/ECT-03

malexmalex Posts: 100Member
I am considering converting my oil burning Peerless EC/ECT-03 steam boiler to NG. I have a 3/4" NG line coming the house for my water heater, range and dryer. The burner is a Riello 40F5 with .75/60w nozzle, air 2.2 and head 1.5.

Can I convert this setup? The peerless manual says nothing about it.Also is the NG line big enough to accommodate?

If it is possible, what is the best option or what are the things I should consider? And do I need to have a steam pro do this or is a burner specialist the way to go? (assuming it will be hard to find both)

I have been seeing posts about modulating burners for steam that would down fire once pressure is built up. Not sure if this exist but would that be an option?

Lastly, should the draft vent be taken out when converting to gas?

Thanks in advance
