The typical life span of a boiler is 25 years or more – in some cases, a lot more. While a boiler and other components can withstand the rigors of constant service for decades, burners need to be upgraded, from small commercial gun burners to large industrial windbox and ultra low-NOx burners. Combined with the constant improvements in technology and manufacturing techniques, the practical service life of a burner is about 10 years.
Even low-NOx burners more than 10 years old should be considered for replacement. Volatility with high fuel prices and low-NOx legislation mean now is the time to make sure your burner is not holding back the full potential of your steam or hot water system.
