OIL BURNER TECHNOLOGY Omni’s patented burner technology improves the efficiency of the oil burn process by continuous stabilization of the oil viscosity. Optimum atomization (spray) is accomplished by precisely pre- heating the oil and air prior to introduction to the combustion chamber. The waste oil enters into the Oil Pre-Heater Block (figure2) and is pre-heated to operating thermo setpoint, then compressed air from the air compressor (figure1) is mixed with the oil prior to spr

• Air Pressure Adjuster: (figure1) Adjusts the air pressure going to the pre-heater block. Should be adjusted between 12 PSI and 13PSI as indicated on the Air Pressure Gauge on the burner for thorough burn of the waste oil. Note: In order to insure proper air adjustment, air gauge must read 0 when burner is cycled off or powered down. • Oil Pressure Gauge: (figure1) Displays oil pressure at the burner. Adjustment at the Oil Pump must be made to achieve oil pressure readings at the burn

SIDE-WALL VENTING---IMPORTANT NOTE Two problems arise when side wall venting any oil appliance; 1. There is sometimes an accelerated rate at which soot builds up on the cad-cell, spinner, etc. 2. There is the potential for severe soot damage to the side of the structure in the event that the boiler operates at a high smoke level. This can happen for many reasons, some of which are out of the control of both the installer and appliance manufacturer. Econo Heat recommends the us
