Oil to Gas conversion - Problem Low steam
“Up Graded” to a Carlin 201 gas gun with a 60 degree pattern. Problem it is not producing enough steam.
Upped the orifice size. The heat (btu’s) seems to be there, but I don’t think they are heating all the sections of the boiler evenly.
The boiler is a peerless ECT-06-300wu with a 20” depth. Too me it seems like the flame is not heating the sections even. Like it is only using 2-3 of the possible 5 sections to rise through.
The liner is in. I have asked the question of should I remove it?
Should I add some baffles to the sections to correct flow?
When it was fired by a Carlin 102crd oil gun the boiler system had been gone over. Balanced, cleaned (water jacket, pipes and fire box), reinsulated, new vents (adjusted to be balanced), moved vents to proper locations and heights, looked over everything.. Large 2 pipe system 5 mains.
Got a second degree in the “Art of Steam”. It was running great!
If you have run into this, I would appreciate the input on how to correct it.
