I was wondering if anyone has any comments on the Burner Booster that was in the  Boston paper recently. I have had a few customer asking about it.

    oil btus

    The btus produced by any fuel is determined by the temperature of the flame while it is burning.  The temperature of the flame is determined by how much excess air is mixed with the flame.  If your CO2 is 12% your flame temperature and btus produces are the same regardless of what pressure your pump is set or how hot you pre-heated your oil.  However unless you run higher pump pressures and keep your oil warmer, it is hard to burner 12%-14% CO2 and stay clean. 

    Saving 30% could only be accomplished if the original setting were screwed up in the first place. 

    Using higher pump pressures, warm combustion air and warm oil will accomplish everything that they are claiming for a lot less investment.
