  • Boiler refractory

    Had the boiler inspector drop by this week and told me I needed to repair the refractory on my hot water boiler. Boiler is 6 years old. Also told me I needed an emergency shut off to the boilers outside the mechanical room.

    My question is how big of a job is replacing the refractory? Keeping in mind it not a hug boiler.

    Thx

    What make/model is the boiler, and how what is the burner input in Btuh (should Say on the rating plate). I don't know what the inspector wants for an emergency shut off..Did he say electrical disconnect? Knowing what province you are in will let me know which code the inspector is enforcing.

          no offense, but if you don't know enough about this unit and the btu's, you shouldn't be messing with it.

          i am taking an educated guess that it's more like 2,880,000. btu's.

          it's not a difficult job to disassemble the sheet metal and remove the heat exchanger to get to the refractory stone.

          i would bring in a person who is familiar with this heater to assist you. check with the company for a parts break down and availability of replacement refractory stones/ insulation. this stuff is fairly delicate.
