Burnham LE Oil fired boiler long turbulator no longer available

We're planning to service four Burnham LE series oil fired boilers and I'm guessing some turbulators will need replacing. Burnham no longer makes the long turbulators the boilers came with. Is it ok to replace only the damaged ones with the new shorter turbulators and re-use the long ones that are good, or do we need to replace them all?

    Sure, give it a whirl. But make sure you check & set your draft properly. I'd probably mix and match short and long so that all the longs aren't in one section and the shorts in the other.

    Nothing more aggravating than a MFG that doesn't support a product.

    I have 3 HEPA air cleaners I run and their about 12 years old. 1 is a Honeywell and the other two are Hunters and they work fine.

    Just yesterday I ordered some new filters and for the first time they are not available where I always bought online.

    I finally found some , had to buy from 2 different suppliers

    Probably next year I wont be able to get them at all. I have tossed lawnmowers and other stuff that you can't get parts for anymore.

    Seems like if it's over 10 years old your out of luck.

    I am late to this party, but I found a guy with a CNC laser that can cut anything you need.
    I had him cut stainless steel baffles for my boiler. Prices for stainless is way cheaper than what you could buy replacement baffles for. https://www.2twentytwosteel.com

    If anyone is still following this, this baffle might still be available: https://www.supplyhouse.com/Burnham-6113501-Turbulator-Baffle-6-Pass-x-18-1-2-Long-Steel-Tipped-RS-109-RS-112
