A Flame-Safeguard Programmer, available in various
control sequences, programs the firing cycle. The
operating cycle is sequenced to ensure normal and safe
conditions before fuel can be introduced into the
supervised to ensure that ignition of main flame is
properly established and maintained. Both direct spark
and gas pilot ignition systems are available. Flame
monitoring is provided by optical scanner of the cesium
oxide, lead sulfide. cadmium sulfide or ultraviolet types.
The limit circuit includes the operating limit control to
maintain set operating pressure or temperature, as well
as a high limit control to guard against excessive
pressure or temperature. Low water and other similar
safety controls can be interlocked into the burner control
system to fit specific job and/or code requirements.
The control circuit is normally 120 volts. A control circuit
transformer may be furnished to provide the 120 volt
control circuit for polyphase motor applications. The
control circuit is frequently interlocked with the polyphase
motor circuit to shut down the burner in the event of an
interruption of the motor current.
Power Flame Type C burners are capable of firing single
or multi-fuel applications. (See model selection, page 6.)
For multi-fuel burners, fuel changeover may be provided by
automatic control, influenced by outside temperature or
manual switching. Interlocking relays and timers ensure safe
changeover of fuels by means of a timed interruption of firing,
long enough to cause a complete recycle of the programmer.
The prewired Control Panel is mounted and wired as an
recommendations of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. and
National Electrical Code. Components are wired to numbered
terminal strips. Panels and burners are factory fire tested
before shipment. Comprehensive wiring and gas and/or oil
piping diagrams are furnished with each burner in accordance
with individual job or application requirements. Wall mounted
or free-standing control panels are also available.
Power Flame C burners are available with control systems to
comply with the requirements of Factory Mutual, Industrial
Risk Insurers and any special state, municipal, local and utility
company codes, including New York City Department of
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, State of Connecticut Fire
Marshall, Illinois School Code and others.
The numerical suffix after the letter "C" denotes the
burner frame size. The letter "R" inserted immediately
The alphabetical designation immediately following the
frame size indicates the fuels to be used: "G" is gas
only; "O", oil only: and "GO", combination gas/oil.
The two numbers following the fuel designation, in all gas
and gas/oil listings, denote the standard gas train size.
(Selected components may be different pipe sizes than
the nominal train size coded.)
1" gas train
2" gas train
1¼ gas train
2½ gas train
1½" gas train
3" gas train
Frame size (see capacity ratings)
Any alphabetical suffix (such as "A", "B", "S" or "V", etc.) to the
fuel designation denotes special product coding (consult
See page 6 "Standard Burner Ratings and Component
Data" for further information.
UNPACKING AND HANDLING
Type C Power Flame burners are usually shipped as a
unit with an integrally mounted, prewired control panel. A
remote fuel oil pumpset is shipped separately on the
larger size oil and oil/gas units. Gas train components
may be mounted on the burner or shipped loose for field
Uncrate burner carefully and check all parts received against
the computer generated Burner Specification Sheets supplied
by Power Flame. Components not mounted on the burner
(shipped loose) are designated with an "L" on the sheets.
Claims of shortage or damage must be immediately filed with
WARRANTY AND SPARE PARTS INFORMATION
Power Flame offers a 15 month Limited Warranty on all
components from the date of shipment. See inside of
back cover for details.
The Owners Information envelope packed with the
burner contains a Warranty Registration Card. The
Warranty Registration Card is also a request form for a
computer generated Spare Parts List. An on-hand
supply of spare parts is highly recommended in case of
emergency shutdown. The pre-addressed, postage paid
Warranty Registration Card should be completed and
returned to Power Flame. In the event that the Warranty
Registration Card is lost, please contact Power Flame's
Customer Service Department in Parsons, Kansas. All
communications with the factory will be handled more
efficiently if the burner is identified by the burner model, serial
and invoice numbers. This information is stamped into the
burner nameplate that is attached to the integral control panel
(or to the burner, when remote control panels are supplied).
