Water Handbook - Boiler System Failures | SUEZ

Violent bursts of the thin-lipped variety occur when water circulation in the tube is interrupted by blockage or by circulation failure caused by low water levels. In some steam drum designs, water level is extremely critical because the baffling may isolate a generating section of the boiler when the steam drum water level falls below a certain point.

Low Water Cutoffs – What Can I do to Prevent A Low Water Condition?

Types of Low Water Cutoff Devices. To help prevent damage, boilers are fitted with low water cutoffs (LWCOs). These devices are intended to detect the low water condition and shut down the boiler. The burner remains off until the water returns, then the burner is allowed to fire normally. Some LWCOs have a dual function of starting and stopping

What is a Low-Water Cutoff? - Definition from Corrosionpedia

A low-water cutoff is a mechanical device (usually a float switch) that is used to turn off the burner or shut off fuel to a boiler to prevent it from running once the water drops below a certain point. If a boiler is "dry-fired" (burned without water in it) it can suffer rupture or catastrophic failure. The cause of low-water cutoff device

On hydronic systems, it is common to have one installed in the piping above the boilers. If the low water cutoff is connected to the system piping with nipples or pipes, valves cannot be installed in the piping to allow isolation of the low water cutoff and the system.
