What is main Function of Boiler Safety Valve?

Why Boiler Safety Valve is more important?







Boiler safety Valve:

Boiler safety valve is one of important parts of boiler mounting and fittings. The boiler safety valve ensures that the boiler can not reach to excessive steam pressure, should the boiler limit control fail. The type of safety valve fitted or prepare as British Standard as a high lift type.

The safety valve settings has been adjusted prior to the boiler leaving ones manufacturer factory. A plate on the safety valve specifies the operating conditions for which the valve was supplied. Once set the valve setting must not be tempered with. To prevent this the padlock keys should be kept in a safe place under the supervision of responsible qualified person.


Why people more prefer Cochran Boiler?

The Cochran is a package unit covering a range of evaporations. The Cochran boiler is a three pass wet back design. The first pass is the furnace and the second and third passes are two nests of small bore smoke tubes. All plain tubes are expanded except for boilers with working pressure of 13.79 bar= 200 lb/inch2 and over when the second pass tubes are expande3d and seal welded into the reversal chamber.
All the required number of stay tubes and stay bars are fitted in all boilers. All stay tubes are welded into the tube plates and reversal chamber. Stay bars are welded into the tube plates. The flue gas outlet is normally positioned vertically on the rear casing.
The Cochran boiler internal access is through an elliptical manhole with a removable door which is provided on top of the boiler. A muddoor is fitted to each tube plate. Access to the rear chamber is achieved by removing the side doors of the rear casing. Whilst access to the front chamber is provided by opening a hinged doo…

How one test Air in Fuel?

A replacement of fuel supply lines, fuel filters, fuel injection pump, high pressure fuel lines and injectors will let air enter the fuel system. Air in the fuel system will make the engine hard to start, run rough, misfire, and produce low power and cause excessive smoke and fuel knock.

Replacing procedure of Air filter, Fuel filter of Generator:




Replacing the fuel supply lines, fuel filters, fuel injection pump, high presser fuel lines and injectors will let air enter into the fuel system. One must follow the system to bleed the air from the system.








Since the fuel transfer pump provides positive pressure through the fuel filter and supply line to the fuel injection pump, loose connections or defective seals show as a fuel leak and not as an air leak.

For faster air purge small amounts of air can be bled from the fuel injection pump by operating the hand primer located on the fuel transfer pump or by cranking the engine.








One sees a source that is often overlooked for air to enter the fue…

What will bad Impact if Air in Fuel of Generator?
Air in Fuel 


Fuel is flammable. Keep all cigarettes, flames, pilot lights, arcing equipment and switches out to the work area and areas sharing ventilation to reduce the possibility of severe personal injury or death when working on the fuel system.



Do not vent the fuel system on a hot engine this can cause to spill onto a hot exhaust manifold which can cause a fire. How to bubble test of diesel generator fuel?


The low pressure fuel system for diesel generator installation in the vehicle consists of the fuel tank lines between the tank and the engine transfer pump and lines and fuel filter and lines. Air or bubbles at the injection pump can cause the engine not to operate or erratic engine operation and subsequent  malfunction of the injection pump. Air can be introduced by leaks in the fuel system prior to transfer pump since the fuel in the lines in under a vacuum and can draw air into the system. Bubbles can result from any number of res…
