Guide to running on air.

Post  Mike King on Thu 26 Oct 2017, 7:05 pm

Hi anyone, can someone give me the idiots huide to running on air, such as the correct order as to what valves to open/close etc. I'm just needing to prove that leaks do not exist. Do I need water in boiler and tender etc? I know that the boiler and tender do not leak water as they stand.
Regards
Mike

Just connect up the air and see what happens, it should run on about 30psi so long as nothings too tight. Brush a bit of soapy water around any suspect joints. Don't worry too much about minor leaks as it'll tighten up when it gets hot with a fire. As long as you have followed the instructions it should run quite nicely, good luck.
