ControlsAs their name implies, boiler controls are a way to build another layer of control and security into your boiler system. Boiler controls detect unusual, undesirable, and dangerous conditions, and automatically take steps to remedy the situation. While the range of controls available for industrial boilers varies, there are some more basic controls that you will want, no matter what kind of system you use. For any type of boiler, you’ll typically want some kind of low water cutoff control. This control monitors the water level of your boiler and can be programmed to initiate a shutdown to prevent damaging or dangerous firing conditions. Sometimes low water cutoffs are combined with water feeders in one control. Your technician will be able to tell you if this combination is right for your boiler.

Water feeders and liquid level controls are two additional and important considerations when it comes to commercial boiler controls. Water feeders are an efficiency-creating control that eliminates the need to manually add water to a boiler. They are used in conjunction with low water cutoff controls. As with low water cutoffs, the purpose of water feeders and liquid level controls is to keep your boiler functioning safely, and if there is a dangerous low water condition, water feeders and water cutoff controls will adjust water levels or prompt a shutdown in order to prevent significant damage and dangerous firing conditions. If this sounds complicated or overwhelming, don’t worry—the technicians at Manley’s Boiler, Inc. are experts at making recommendations and installing the appropriate commercial boiler controls for your system.
