nozzle size/type

I need a new nozzle for the firing assembly on my home heating boiler oil furnace. The one I need is .75 80 degree A. But everyone in my area is out of that particular one at this time. One place said they have the same thing but only 90 degree. Would that one be okay? How much can I vary so the thing will work right? Thanks

The spray angle is critical. You must use the angle that the combustion chamber and burner head is designed to use.

The flow rate (GPH) is a bit less critical and you could probably use a nozzle that has a bit more (.80 GPH) or a bit less (.70 GPH) without serious problems. You would need to have the combustion "fine-tuned" with combustion analysis instruments if you changed the flow rate.

Thanks Bob. I was hoping to find the right nozzle locally so I wouldn't have to wait very long by having to order one from someplace. But if I just have no luck after checking around a little more I'll check out Patriot. Thanks for the lead.
