These collectors have an annoying issue where they plug up with a white substance - looks like by-products of combustion to me, but I don't know. We just replace the collectors because they'll just clog and clog again otherwise. No callbacks once they're replaced.
White substance is crystallization. Co workers say its due to too much heat in the collector box. The water is boiling.
I'm still skeptical of this.
Rundawg thanks! Alex sent me same info in Lennox literature so thanks guys. As far as others this is a Lennox which senses pressure differential across inducer office. ( I just learned this) I believe older Carriers used to sense actual combustion air in the burner box, with tube that connected at combustion chamber. I wasn't sure if drainage issue was tied into this current issue, but I'll replace the trap and then blow out the condensate line. PacNW lack of common sense it's one thing I wish I could teach people but how do u teach common sense when a person has no common sense? I was wondering if there was a issue with first series of pressure switches and I'll check with Lennox in am. The current switch I installed to get them going seems to work just fine just closes on a vacuum versus the pressure differential, but will get a hold of Lennox dealer. Thanks everyone I appreciate the 101 I received. Happy New Year
Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet. (so true Milk Man)
The pressure switch is marked positive and negative and so is the collector who cares what color the hoses are?
if it does not matter, then why 2 colors.
if you are going to do something for ease of application, why alter the standard for your purpose?
