boiler blow off
cccx3 Member Posts: 1
boiler keeps blowing off at 30 lbs new fill valve set at 10 lbs new relief valve 30 lbs new expansion tank new aquastat. Furnace shuts off at 180 temp but lbs goes to 30 have a pressure gauge before expansion tank shows pressure water in at 10 lbs but goes up to 30 expansion tank has 15 20 lbs pressure in it
Does it happen with the fill valve isolated?
Do you have an indirect tank or coil that could be leaking high pressure domestic water into the system.
Is the expansion tank sized correctly?
Did you check the tank pressure when it was detached from the system?
A picture of the piping arrangement would help.
