CCE & CE’s oil gun retract mechanism provides remote automatic insertion and retraction of oil guns to and from the firing position.
The device consists of a pneumatic cylinder, mounted externally on the wind box on the oil gun guide pipe.
The cylinder is actuated by compressed air introduced through a 4-way solenoid valve.
A signal from the burner controls actuates the solenoid to introduce compressed air to the cylinder, which moves the gun forward and keeps it in a firing position by continuous application of compressed air.
After the firing is terminated and the scavenging cycle is completed, the gun is retracted to prevent damage to the spray nozzle due to overheating.
Our pneumatically operated mechanism retracts the gun when the associated burner is no longer required for the load.
It is also interchangeable with existing wall-fired oil burners and corner-fired oil burners.
