New Reillo burner question

Just had a new Reillo R40 F3 burner installed to replace a beckett AFII85 . I Have a Buderus G115/21boiler . The new burner has G115/WS3 stamped on it . The installer set this up with a 0.55x60a nozzle , the stack temp reads 356.5deg and the CO2 is 11.13% . the chart I have shows an .050x70a nozzle with a 289deg stack temp . The chart also lists the same burner part number for the G115/21 and the G115WS/3 . He has to come back and check the pump pressure ( gage wasn't working) which he said is supposed to be 180 but the chart shows 160 . Is this going to cause me problems the way this is set up or will this work ?

    It’s possible you’re overthinking the whole thing, if the installer is a reputable contractor, you are in good shape. The burner will easily work properly with the .55

    Hello all , I guess my question should have been as follows . I have a Buderus G115/21 boiler and the new Reillo R40F3 burner is factory preset for a G115WS/3 . Will this work in my boiler as is with the factory settings ? T :| he setting for the G115/21 show it to be different in the book.

    My Riello book specs differently than my Buderus book. And theres an up fire spec as well.
    And both were bench tested in near perfect conditions.
    As long as everything falls in line; smoke, draft, and combustion test results. Whatever nozzle gives the best combustion is the one to use.
    BYW, I'm not using anything remotely close to what they spec for my boiler. But she's clean as a whistle every year.

    Right , the spec on the G115 WS/3 is for the up fired boiler . As long as the R40 F3 burner I have which is factory preset to the WS/3 specs will work with the G115/21 boiler I have then all is good . I was just wondering if I should have it set up for the G115/21 specs or leave it as it came set up for the WS/3 boiler .

    It’s the same boiler. 21 is Kilowatts. 3 is Sections. Why they change the nomenclature I don’t know. The newer G115s have more baffles than the older ones. But firing rate should be about the same. Specs have shifted over the last 20 years- higher pressure and smaller nozzle sizes
