The electric oil burner is a device that is used for producing heat through the burning of oil. The oil must be made into a fine spray first by forcing it under pressure through a nozzle. The resulting spray is then fired with an electric spark.
Combustion needs air and this is forced in by means of an electric fan. To get in oil and the right amount of pressure on the nozzle the oil burner uses a gear pump, which is generally at fifteen bars.
The pump that is used by the oil burner is generally of the sickle type, which is a simple device that is composed of one or more important gear pairs. The space that can be found in between the pump casing and the gears are very small. Gear pumps are fit for use in oil burners because they are simple. They are, in addition, steady and inexpensive.
The pressure regulator is also another essential component of the electric oil burner. The part is used for adjusting the amount of fuel that goes through the nozzle, which sets the heat that is produced by the oil burner. A variable pressure relief valve is used in the adjustment and it can be found amid the pump and the nozzle. Once the set pressure has been achieved, usually from ten to eleven bars, the valve is unlocked and excess oil is secreted to a bypass leading to the suction pump or fuel tank.
To start an electric oil burner, you need to connect the burner first with a power source and then turn off the emergency shut down switch that is found on the furnace. The boiler or burner is then purged with air and the oil atomized. The atomized oil is then deflagrated by means of a high voltage produced between a pair of electrodes. You can use the flame detection feature if the oil catches fire. If it does not, the burner will go on alarm and it must be reset manually.
