1
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Flame Rectification l Remember Ohm’s Law E = I X R

2
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Applied AC voltage Alternating Current Sine Wave

3
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Basic Electrical Circuit + - SOURCE CONDUCTOR LOAD CONTROL

4
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Flame Rectification circuit! What devices are used for electrodes? äFlame rod äBurner

5
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl l The Voltage Source is the Ignition Control l The “load” is the flame sensing circuit inside the control l The conductors are the electrodes already identified. l What acts as the “switch”? l The flame completes the circuit. Flame Rectification Circuit

6
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Flame Sense Circuit ä One electrode is larger than the other causing electron flow to be greater in one direction than in the other. ä Compare the burner size to the flame rod size.

7
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl a5a Current flow when flame rod is positive + _ F G

8
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl a1a Current flow when flame rod is negative + _ F G

9
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Applied AC voltage a a Effect = 4 a pulsating DC Effective Flame Signal

10
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Remember Ohm’s Law ? What happens in a circuit if resistance increases and voltage stays the same? Flame Rectification Circuit

11
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Typical Flame Detection Current Need to measure AC A as well as DC A Typical in-shot burner DC current is 2-5 A with a 4-8 A AC leakage. DC current is less than 1 A and AC current is at or above 4 A 1.Flame signal is weak 2.Corrective action is required

12
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl DC Current vs. AC Current

13
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl DC Current vs. AC Current DC CURRENTAC CURRENTAC DROPOUT

14
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Remember Ohm’s Law ? What happens in a circuit if resistance increases and voltage stays the same? What can affect the resistance in the circuit? What else can affect the flame signal? Flame Rectification Circuit

15
Technical Conference - Panama City Beach, Fl Increased circuit resistances l Burner oxidation l Non-secure burner l Flame “lift off” l Loose wire connections l Contaminated flame sensor l Faulty grounds l No grounds l Reverse polarity
