QUESTION FOR THE "OLD" PRO'S
Oil burners, which I really like for heat, are almost a thing of days gone by. There are a bunch of trades tecs in my area that work on them, but do a lot of the work by the seats of their pants. Nothing wrong with that, we've all taken a wack at that I'm sure. Instead of doing like them, as I do now, I'd like to get a thorough understanding of the beast.
Setting up is a different kettle of fish than gas, and requires a full understanding of gasses, heats and transfers. All the good stuff
I ran across an article from Riello tat said "burner tabulator rates for all firing rates is "0"
Where in hell are the tabulator setting in relation to the burner and why a "0" setting on all rates?
I ain't got a clue.....enlighten me....and no this is not a DIY
If your not a diy then applly for pro membership. I would like to here the answer to your question but i dont think you will get an in depth answer here. I dont know enough about oil to offer anything to you. I cant get enough of the old stuff and love too learn with out blowing myself up.
Yes get your pro status, there is a very good oil burner section in the pro forums, I am not familiar with reillo burners, I see mostly beckett stuff around here. You have a few more posts to go before applying for pro status, but that's where we can talk technical shop talk.
You can't fix stupid
Sorry, this is not a DIY site. So we are not allowed to give out DIY advise of this nature.
So answering your question in the open Residential Forums would be posting DIY instruction for DIYers that may read this post later.
If your in the trade, get your post count up to 15, and apply for Pro Membership.
Once accepted, you have access to the pro tech forums. Where you can ask and get answers to technical questions.
We also have a Pro Oil burners forum.
Plus, you also have access to the Pro Education Forums.
All of it is free.
Thanks for the feed back guys.
I will have to sus out the pro stuff
I'm a trades guy and always on the look out for good ideas
By the way.........how do you go about getting your count up?
just by talking back and forth like this.
Well, you can do like Twilli did.
And just reply with the word "Coleman" to a lot of post.
