What do you mean inside? Are you talking inside the plenum? If so I would guessimate somewhere between 150-200, after a few minutes of running(you should have a high limit set at 225-250).

Is there no way to override the logic?I think that the fuzzy logic is alittle foggy.I realize that the boiler temp coasts up to its set point but the dhw never reaches temp.The only time it has reached temp is when I switched the control to manual and let rip for a few hours.If left on auto it goes to where it wants then waits for a drop in temp to start the pump again.This is a 100 unit apartment building, has a major draw from the tank first thing in the morning.It has continuous recirc. Tenants and super are not impressed with the cooler water.Tenants complain to super, super complains to me, I scratch my head,these are my first experience with the logomatic controls.These are replacement boilers, the hot water used to be control by a aquastat, in the same well, set between 130-140.

tank temp

@ November 9, 2004 6:09 PM in buderus logomatic

The tank is a 500 gal storage with sidearm /rapfast heater.Sensor is in a dry well in the middle(end) of tank.Water from the top of tank is approx 10 degrees higher than display is reading. But doesn't the display show what the control(logomatic) thinks the tank is?

logomatic hot water

@ November 9, 2004 5:10 PM in buderus logomatic

I'm servicing two ge615 buderus boilers with logomatic controls. My problem is that the logomatics shuts down the indirect circ before it ever reaches temp.I set it for 120, it goes to 115. If I set it for 135 it goes to 129.What's up with this? Any help would be appreciated.

field test kits?

@ October 27, 2004 5:42 PM in asbestos

Do they have field test kits? How much? Seems like something that would be very useful in our business.My company has to eat the cost of testing most of the time if I suspect a material is asbestos.

Don't know if you should be p*&ed or just laugh at the stupidity. Well at least he didn't just throw out the instructions.

I've never set up a modulating burner before, I need help understanding the servomotor settings.Manual tells me to set trim potentiometer after opening the cam to max. I'm lost, I'm reading but no comprending, I'm seeing without understanding.

pressure on nozzle

> oil valve, but rather to work in conjunction with
> one, no leaks, positive cutoff, that's the goal!

oil valve and check at nozzle?hmmmm doesn't that create a closed loop that may increase in pressure with heat?just wondering aloud, I'll have to try some experimenting with my burner.

sticking open

@ October 9, 2004 8:31 AM in Powerflame oil

oil2-4-6-gas,I'm thinking o-ring because this powerflame set up only uses oil pressure to drive bimba to high fire.Linkage is moving freely(falls on it's own).Don't think return pressure is problem, I can disconnect line to this cylinder when it sticks up and it stays up, If I give it a twist on the rod, it falls back.It's just that I only service less than a dozen of these burners and this would be the fourth burner that I've had trouble of this type with.I thought Bimba was a brand name? Any better quality than the ones powerflame is using?
