Have a job with a crown eng.any hite day tank and have been having promblem locating it our local supplier and sid harvey are unable to even locate the company or the product we really don't want to do a lift pump with pressure switches on the burners this home has always had a pump and day tank all the way back from when she was built in the early 1910 .The oil tank is about 85 to 100 ft away and we have started to have minor promblems with the low limit float not engaging i am going to replace the sealed relays since this unit does cycle quite a bit when the main boiler is operating about every 7 to 9 minutes thanks for any help peace clammy

    I haven't worked in

    wholesale for 7 years now (thank gawd) but the last time I tried to trackdown an N-E-Hite I couldn't find one either.

    There's a lot of ways to do that and my personal favorite is to use a brake light switch from a car in place of the cheap pressure switches out there. The auto stuff just seems to be made better.

    I've also done this rig with a 7/24 pump, but if you get a leak look out. I normally do that when the pump is enclosed directly on top of the tank or I have 100% containment.

    Another way is to use a relay from the burners with a time delay on each burner. I use to be stuck with solid-state timers and oil valves, but now there's all kinds of choices including pre-purge controls.
    Put the pump in parallel with the burner motor and stage the nozzle valve. If you have more questions get in touch with me and I can also give you links to a 3 part article I wrote for Fuel Oil News.

    Here's another great resource too:

    I LOVE BOOSTERS!
