down. Watering to cool down is prohibited. The combustion adjustment method
is as follows:
1) During normal operation, the feeding volume and air supply volume shall be
adjusted in time according to the change of boiler load. Usually adjust the
feeding amount by changing the speed or frequency of the grate.

when the operation of the boiler cannot be stopped, when the automatic control
of the disconnection confirms that it will not affect the safe operation of the boiler,
it shall be confirmed by the person in charge of the boiler equipment of the user
in the boiler needs to be drained, it shall be done when the water temperature inside the
boiler is lower than 70°C.

can also clean out the fuel in the boiler. But under no circumstances shall water be
poured into the boiler to cool the boiler.
8.2.5 For emergency shutdown of hot water boilers, the circulating water pump shall
not be stopped immediately. The circulating water pump can only be stopped when the
boiler outlet water temperature drops below 50°C. Close the outlet valve. Open the
relief pipe. Let off the steam. If the vaporization continues, water can be fed into the
boiler, and water can be released from the discharge pipe, so as to make the boiler water
