What is the purpose of the second line on a two pipe oil delivery system?
One way to solve the problem of air and gases in the oil is with a two-pipe system. This has a second, return, line which pumps the separated air along with any unburned oil back to the tank.
Is a Tiger Loop necessary?
The one-pipe system without a Tigerloop® is not to be recommended. This is due to the increased risk of breakdowns, as gas/air bubbles cannot be removed from the oil pump during operation. Such a system will only work as long as the oil is continuously 100% free of gas/air bubbles.
What must be done to an oil pump to change it from a one pipe system to a two pipe system?
A two pipe oil feed system will allow air and oil to return back down the return line and back into the oil tank. To go from a one pipe system to a 2 pipe, you need to:
- Unscrew the return pipe.
- Remove the bypass screw (3)
- And then screw the return plug in (2)
How does a double oil tank work?
When twin tanks are used, there are two ways that they are set up. The vent pipe and whistle are in the second tank, so once the level in the second tank rises to the whistle, the driver knows the tanks are full. The tanks are then connected at the bottom via a small oil line which helps the tanks equalize with time.
What components of the oil burner are responsible for atomizing the oil?
Here’s how today’s oil burners work The regulating valve, located in the pump housing, produces the right amount of pressure to atomize or break down the oil. The ignition/transformer produces a high-voltage spark that provides enough heat to vaporize the atomized oil from the nozzle and achieve ignition.
What the static disc does in a high pressure oil burner?
The high static pressure behind the flame retention head helps to resist and absorb any pulsations on start-up, shutdown, or during the running cycle.
How does Tiger loop work?
The Tiger Loop works by the oil pump in the burner creating suction to the Tiger Loop. This suction spins the internal disc in the Tiger Loop and this creates suction on the fuel line to the fuel tank.
Can a Tiger loop be fitted inside?
The Tiger Loop Bio removes air from heating oil and can be fitted internally or externally. Suitable for oil, kerosene and biofuel.
What is the typical control voltage for an oil furnace?
For a typical residential oil burner application, the breakdown voltage at the electrodes is between 8000 and 10,000 volts.
When should an oil pump internal bypass plug be removed?
58-14) When should an oil pump internal bypass plug be removed? The bypass plug should be removed for a 1 pipe system and in place for a two pipe system. 58-15) How can a leak in the fuel suction line cause no oil to be delivered to the pump?
When should I fill up my oil tank?
One of the best times of the year to fill your heating oil tank is during the last few weeks of summer, before the coming onslaught of oil orders. During the summer months, most homeowners do not even think about their oil tanks. As such, business is typically down among heating oil suppliers during this time of year.
Which pipe is the fill pipe on an oil tank?
The fill pipe extends from the top of the oil tank, through the exterior wall, and outside of the house. There is a cap that screws in place to keep the fill pipe closed. The vent pipe also extends up and out of the house, and allows air to escape as the oil tank is being filled.
How far should oil tank be from house?
An oil tank has to be a minimum of 1.8 metres away from any part of a building or construction that isn’t fire resistant, such as doors, windows, eves and cladding.
