    Help

    What am I doing wrong? What donít I understand? I go the Burnham site and see the MegaSteam boiler. Then as instructed on the web page, I click on the picture of the MegaSteam boiler to learn more about the MegaSteam. When I click on the MegaSteam boiler, I go to this url http://www.burnham.com/mpo/index.htm and get what I think is the literature for the MPO water because the boilers referenced have an afue of 87 percent while the MegaSteam has an afue of 86 percent. I looked at a few documents and I can't find anything about a steam boiler. They talk about a water boiler. Can you please post the url for the MegaSteam boiler? Thank you.

    I believe that the issue of your computer going to the original MPO site may have something to do with your cookies. If you had been visiting the site before the MST was posted on there earlier this week, your computer would have sent a cookie and saved it. When we posted the MST it inadvertently carried over the MPO URL address and your computer may have been pulling it out of memory somehow. Maybe I'm all wrong about that as these compters never seem to amaze me. All I do know is that everyone else seemed to be getting the Steam Info when you were not.

    I don't get it.

    Steamhead, what does this mean in layman's terms? Do you mean that a third party might create a gas burner that could be used with this boiler? (the homeowner then buys a boiler and an aftermarket burner) And if this is the case, why wouldn't Burnham do this "in house?" What would it take to have the burner "certified?" Differences in fuel prices notwithstanding, it sounds like it could be cheaper to install that oil tank! Just curious, Patrick

    What it all comes down to is dollars and good sense. There are certainly power gas burners out there that would work in our residential Oil-oriented products and could be equipped and configured at the factory. The big qustion about this is whether the consumer would be willing to pay the additional several hundred "Dollar" expense for this boiler with a gas burner and extra related safety devices versus an atmospheric type dedicated Gas boiler such as the Independence which is of slightly lower efficiency. Reality dictates that some folks like Steamhead will always be able to upsell to the MegaSteam but our "Sense" tells us that the majority will select the more competitively priced atmospheric boiler. The unknown is whether the folks that can upsell the gas power burner model will be numerous enough to justify the cost of development, testing and certification. They are timely and costly processes. Glenn Stanton Manager of Training Burnham Hydronics U.S. Boiler Co., Inc.

    Another thing, Glenn

    I've seen gas steamers that rotted above the waterline just like we've seen on oil steamers. The Mega-Steam design, as you say, should prevent this. I'd sure like to offer this to our gas-fired customers as well as our oil-fired ones. I really believe that with its better efficiency and expected longevity increase, many gas customers would want the Mega-Steam over the Independence. You'll always be able to sell the Independence to landlords. As a side note, today I talked to the manager of the R.E. Michel branch we usually use and he wasn't even aware of the Mega-Steam. Now that he is, he is supposed to be contacting the area Burnham rep to get them into the branch. The wheels are turning, who will be the first to post a Mega-Steam install on the Wall?

    The following is a copy of a post I placed on OilTechTalk to an individual that has had more than of his share of internal corrosion issues where he is located in the South Shore area of Massachusetts. Regarding all of the exchanges that we have had over the past couple of years, I would like to clarify the results. As discussed in the past, you have had more than your share of V7 and V8 steam leakers due to internal corrosion. As also discussed, we have paid VERY close attention to this occuring out in the field and have taken several steps to find out why. We have taken water samples from several of the jobsites where this has occured as well as a real close look at the possible contributory things that the system itself can cause. I have discussed most of these things here and at other sites. As discussed in previous posts, yes things like uninsulated mains, lack of venting and unattended excessive water makeup can kill steam boilers rather quickly regardless of the brand. One of the primary reasons you folks in your part of Mass. see this happening more often also has to due with the fact that Burnham Steam boilers were installed with greater frequency than other areas so just by percentages you will be seeing more failures. As I stated in all of the previous posts, we have not been resting on our laurels waiting for this problem to go away. We have been exploring the whys of this by sending engineers to your area and to a handful of other areas where this happened with greater frequency than anywhere else. We also brought several of these boilers back and sent them out to independent laboratories for analysis (a very expensive procedure I must add). Most of the people that monitor these sites can support me in saying that they may not see this happening in their geographical areas. With that in mind, we concentrated on what may be different about your geographical area than other areas where it does not happen. The one common denominator happens to be the water. It was not so much the water itself but what is in the water which ended up being higher than normal chloride levels. This is also something that we have been closely monitoring regarding stainless steel Indirect Heaters failing sooner than desired. With the indirects we began providing glass lined tanks to use where clhoride levels are high. With the steam boilers the answer is now MegaSteam. What we did find is that in areas with higher than normal chloride levels a process was occuring within the steam dome of the boiler called "Temperature Induced Chloride Activated Graphitic Corrosion". This reaction is something that begins with high chlorides in the water and is accelerated by heat or contact of the vertical and upper horizontal surfaces in the steam dome with the flue gasses. It is the contact with the flue gasses that triggers this process and once the ball gets rolling you just can't stop it. Yes it happens with other brands of steam boilers as well but possibly less often for reasons I will explain. Now you ask, what is going to make the MegaSteam different than any other boiler out there currently being used for steam? The difference is the flue gas passageway design. This is a horizontal passageway three pass boiler where all contact with flue gasses is below the steam surfaces. There is absolutely no flue gas contact with the cast iron surfaces that have steam on the other side. If you take away the HEAT you no longer have "Heat Induced Chloride Activated Graphitic Corrosion". You also ask why this is not happening to some of the older boilers that have been out there for years and years as well as other brands of similar vertical pinned flue design. As far as the newer ones go, they are also susceptible but due to variances in exposed surfaces, pin location and iron thickness it just takes longer. They are all prone due to flue gasses being on the other side of the section walls and dome. As far as the older boilers are concerned, the wall thicknesses were much greater and the exchange of flue gas temperature was not as pronouced due to wider passageways and ribbed surfaces instead of pinned surfaces. In otherwords they just were not as darn efficient. Most of the flue gas temperature was simply going up the chimney. We also took a close look at the design of some of the much, much older boilers thant have been out there operating on steam for say 50 to 100 years. Many of these had a common denominator as well. That common denominator is the rear outlet for flue gasses below the water level. They were of either 2-pass or 3-pass design, not very efficient due to the area of the passageways, but none the less below the water line. With all of this in mind we are now glad to introduce the MegaSteam boiler. It is the most efficient steam boiler out there and with protection from the Chloride Activated Corrosion by design....three pass flue gas flow. The testing we have done with this has shown no signs whatsoever of the trigger that starts the chloride corrosion process rolling......heat. That's why we are also the first company to step up to the plate with a warranty that covers internal corrosion. Keep in mind that even with the MegaSteam system issues such as uninsulated mains, lack of venting and unmonitored excessive water makeup still have to be paid attention to. We address this in the I&O manual and even go as far as to show a water meter installed on the makeup water line in the I&O drawings. Sorry for the longer than lengthy post and explanation, but I thought you were entitled to it. Thanks for your continued support Heaterman and others. The distributors now have their pricing and related information and several have orders in already. These are in production and some may begin to roll ot as early as this week. They will all be shipped out Knocked Down with an assembled block, cartoned jacket and all other related items all enclosed on the same pallet. All I ask is to be patient as the reaction to this boiler being introduced has been outstanding. You will see them very shortly. For now they will all be equipped with the Beckett AFG with other burner options to follow. Thanks again! Glenn Stanton Manager of Training Burnham Hydronics U.S. Boiler Co., Inc.

    Yes we have no oil

    Same thing in the Cleveland area. Thousands of older homes with steam, and virtually all natural gas. Cleveland and NE ohio is sitting on top of huge gas reserves and was piped for natural gas starting in the 19th century. So heating oil use in the steam heat areas around here is nil. -Terry p.s. My grandmother's house was built in 1900. One gas burner, one oil burner installed in parallel at construction. The builder of the house was said to be wary of this "natural gas for heating" thing. The oil burner was never really used much, and not at all since about 1945 when she purchased the house.

    Glenn, I understand the

    problem with "Temperature Induced Chloride Activated Graphitic Corrosion" and excessive make up water contributing to boiler corrosion. But, how do uninsulated mains and vents not working properly contribute to excessive boiler corrosion? Do these change the chemistry of the water? Or do they contribute to excessive make water?
  • N/A @ 8:40 PM

    Jim

    As steam passes through uninsulated mains that are exposed to cooler than normal basements, it will condense or collapse at a much greater rate than in an insulated pipe. This condensate when exposed to CO2 that has not yet vented due to inadequate or non-functional main vents will begin to return to the boiler as Carbonic Acid and eventually lower the PH of the boiler water to a very acidic level. Hope this helps. Glenn Stanton Manager of Training Burnham Hydronics U.S. Boiler Co., Inc.

    So does this mean that Burnham acknowledges the issues with the V8 Series steamers in the Massacusetts area? I had two units fail in the span of two years, if you remember my old post on this subject after the second unit rotted out after less than nine months. And that's after spending a grand getting the first unit's sleeve replaced under your parts-only warranty after it rotted out within twenty months. I just want to set the point that you, as a representative or Burnham, are acknowledging the issues with the V8 Series steamers rotting out above the waterline. It would be great to understand if you have found any water additives that might be able to provide a better environment in the sleeve for those whose V7 and V8 series steamers have yet to rot out. If it can provide another year or two of life out of the boiler, people would be very appreciative. -John

    I am trying to get some information on the new Burnham MegaSteam boiler shown on their web site.

Is the MegaSteam available? Thank you.

    Hi Glenn, You are correct, I have been visiting the Burnham web site waiting for the announcement of the Mega Steam. But, I think the literature I am pointed to is for the MPO water boiler. The literature says hot water boiler and when I look at the boiler ratings they say 'i=b=r water ratings'. Look in the color brochure, it says hot water heating comfort. The installation instructions look like they are for a hot water boiler. But, what do I know? I'm just a homeowner. :) Thank you.

    The link to the MegaSteam was just actiavted in the past day or so and does indeed reference the MegaSteam Steam boiler. All of the ratings are IBR Steam ratings.

    Jim

    If you go to the Burnham wesite you will see verbage on the center of the screen regarding the MegaSteam boiler. When you click on that it takes you to another page where you can download literature, Technical Info and even the I&O manual. The URL of that link does actually say MPO in it but it truly is the MST or MegaSteam page. (I'll have them fix that tomorrow.) I really think that you have already been there and didn't realize it because this boiler looks remarkably like the MPO. The MSG or Megasteam boilers are now available for order through you local distributor. They should begin shipping out in just a few weeks. Be patient as the demand has already exceeded the supply of these. This boiler is the first steam boiler in the industry to carry a 5 year internal waterside corrosion warranty in addition to the 10 year warranty. This is a lot to do with the flue gasses being only in contact with the water surfaces and not the steam chest surfaces. The three-pass design ensures this. Hope this helps. http://www.burnham.com/mpo/index.htm Glenn Stanton Manager of Training Burnham Hydronics U.S. Boiler Co., Inc.

    Patrick

    Part of the reasons involve the fact that we already have a very good gas steam boiler that performs well and has an AFUE rating of up to 82.5% or the Independence boiler. The other reason involves the cost comparison involved with equipping the MegaSteam with a power type Gas Burner and extra safety devices required versus the cost of the Independence. We all live in a very price conscious society where a simple $50.00 difference in equipment price can make the difference in what a homeowner or installer ends up buying. Granted there are a few top notch installers out there that frequent these sites that can always up sell something they believe in but the same doesn't account for the vast majority.

    But

    the Independence could never be set up to burn oil, whereas the MegaSteam could use either oil or gas if certified with a power gas burner. This puts the owner in charge of what fuel is burned. It's all about competition- whose fuel is cheapest per BTU? I can picture the gas utilities' CEOs whining about lost revenue... no more golden parachutes..... I know I've said this before, but a gas MegaSteam would be a real winner. And when the oil MegaSteam is finally available in Baltimore, All Steamed Up Inc. has some customers who want it.

  • N/A @ 5:21 PM

    That's correct.

    I somehow missed Jim's last question and apologize for that. Regardless of the fuel it is the heat that is the trigger to starting the degradation process. Not the heat from making steam but the flue gasses on the other side of the cast iron surfaces exposed to the steam chamber of the boiler. Most of the corrosion will take place on the intermediate sections because the steam chamber surfaces are exposed to the flue gasses on both sides as well as the top where the flue gasses collect before leaving the boiler via the flue connection. The end sections only have one side exposed to the flue gasses as well as only a small portion of the top because that's where the canopy or flue collector is mounted.

    No Gas

    At least for the time being there will be no gas-fired burners on this boiler. That's not to say that somewhere down the road that won't happen, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting. Other than commercial boilers, I have never seen a gas burner configured for any of our oil boilers in the 30 years I have been affiliated with Burnham. But never say never as that could change!

    That's disappointing.

    Just a homeowner here, but I don't understand why. From my lay perspective and lmited knowledge, it doesn't seem like there should be that much of a difference from a manufacturering standpoint (I guess there is!). I do understand there's plenty involved in R&D, etc., but still. I live in a historical district populated by lots of steam boilers (surrounded by old Victorian homes) and I know of none that are oil burners. A regional peculiarity, I imagine, but it just seems like you guys would want to offer both, if only for increased market share. I'll be replacing two boilers soon and am not sure I'll want to add an oil tank installation to what I'm sure will be a pretty salty bill to start with. I wonder if it's assumed that folks in my situation will switch to take advantage of the efficiency ratings? Will a high efficiency steam boiler be a separate product? Maybe the MegaSteamer will prompt another maker to enter the fray with a gas burning model? So Mr. Stanton, should I start collecting signatures? Half kidding ;) Patrick
