What kind of burner is this?

Hi all,

Anyone know what kind of burner this is? I have it on one of my boilers and would like to learn about it and get any literature I can find but the plate tag somehow wore off.

Thanks!

    Older 2 stage, hi-lo fire.
    I'd bet @EBEBRATT-Ed or @Steamhead would know.
    Can't really see the housing.

    It's a Carlin 701CRD I think. IF I'm reading it right. See the nozzle data chart near the 2nd stage solenoid. About 12 revisions ago.

    I forget the 'nut' ( @HVACNUT ) would probably know too!
    I was thinking old Carlin, but couldn't see enough of it.

    Thanks all! I was confused about the red on the tag but that looks to be what it is.

    And found this image of another old Carlin with the old tag and it used to be red.

    It's a Carlin for sure, I am thinking larger like a 1050FFD or 1150FFD.

    getting the horsepower off the burner motor may help track it down

    so that box on the left when zoomed in.. it might not be from my actual burner model? Like changed at some service or upgrade to something that says 701CRD?

    How do i get the horsepower off it?

    Definitely Carlin.

    What nozzle size and pump pressure is it running?

    It is probably a smaller burner than I originally thought. It doesn't have the extra enclosure for a motor contactor. Probably is a 701/801

    @FortyTwo

    Take a picture of the electrical box with the nozzle sizes and ratings on it and also the nameplate on the burner motor

    Ok I'll get a pic of the nozzle size plate today. The nameplate on the burner motor is super faded. There's a pic of it in my first post. I'm not sure if I'll be able to open it up today to get a look at the what nozzle is in there.
