    • The porcelain on the flame sensor is cracked
    • The flame sensor is sooty or corroded
  • What is UV scanning?
    • A UV scanner detects the ultraviolet radiation emitted by combustion flames. It is just one part of a larger burner management system. The burner management system decides if there is a flame or not based on the UV scanner and then determines the fuel flow from that decision.
  • How does a flame detector work?
    • The flame detector is an optical sensor that detects the heat and communicates to a control board. It is sensitive to radiation emitted at different wavelengths in different spectral bands.
  • What is a Fireye on a boiler?
