Noisy Peerless bolier

I have a Peerless boiler with a Beckett burner that is very loud. The thing sounds like a jet engine during operation and rumbles pretty hard on shut off. My friend has a burnham unit with a Carlin burner and it is almost silent. Can anyone tell me if I should look at the bruner, the boiler, the flue pipe or the chimney? It is an 8X8 lined masonry chimney. Thanks.

It sounds like a set-up issue. Have a contractor check for the proper nozzle and pump pressure. Also check the "Z" dimension. Than with test equipment check the OF draft (-.02), smoke (0), co2 (11%-12.5%). This very well could resolve this problem.

Thanks

I sure hope it is set up. I assume the Z dimension is the distance from the flame tube to the back wall of the fire box?

No, the "Z" dimension is the distance from the face of the nozzle or edge of the retention head, depending on model of burner,to the end of the burner schroud. This is +/- 1/32 so it must be accurate.
