How to ensure exceptional safety of a domestic or industrial boiler or gas furnace? With the help of ignition control module, you can keep their operation under full surveillance and stay aware when old heaters/elements must be replaced. It ensures correct order of functions and operations.
Typically, an ICM ignition control module is installed in gas furnaces, while other models are versatile and monitor any type of heat. How do they work? Unit has a sensor that tracks temperature in a heating device. Once pre-set heat level is exceeded, an automated ventilation damper is opened by signals coming from unit.
It allows for preventing fires and boiler damage. If sensor is activated too often, it’s advisable to examine and repair or replace boiler/furnace.
Benefits and specifications
Such constructions differ by HVAC system they’re installed in. For example, there are direct spark igniting systems, or hot surface ones (flame is either direct or indirect). Thus, each system type corresponds to different gas furnaces. Regardless of flame type, such devices come with a flame sensor – if no fire is detected, it will try ignite again after some time. If three-four ignition attempts fail, system locks out, which prevents combustible gas collection.
Why use such system?
- It’s a cost-efficient device that serves for years, helps you prolong boiler or furnace life span.
- It ensures safe heating and ignition and prevents fires, melting, blow-up.
- Wide range of models makes it possible to find an option for your HVAC system (residential, industrial, business).
- You know when troubleshooting operations must be performed.
