Boiler safety devices are designed to prevent dangerous conditions from turning into disasters, yet only proper maintenance prevents the dangerous operating conditions from developing in the first place.
The majority of boiler failures are caused by malfunctioning low water cutoffs, operator error, poor maintenance and/or corrosion. Therefore, properly functioning control or safety devices are absolutely essential for any boiler. The only way you can be confident they’re present and will work when necessary is to regularly perform safety checks.
Let Matt Marshall & Company’s trained technicians check Water-level control and low-water fuel cutoff for build-up of sludge or scale that might exist within the system that would interfere with its detection and operation. Something as simple as corrosion or restricted flow within the valve and its related piping can affect the operation of the Safety devices.
