Help with adding stoker timer

PostBy: gillard On: Sun Oct 14, 2012 4:11 pm

Hello everyone I have an oil Arco coal boiler, with an added on bituminous coal stoker. There is 4 heating zones done by zone valves hooked to a Honeywell triple aqua stat works great the aqua stat controls the stoker and the pump. Now the problem I have is when there is no call for heat and the boiler is up to temperature which could be many hours I had lost my fire due to this. I picked up an Honeywell stoker timer r883b and want to add it to the system what would be the best way to do this?

Most timers are wired in a similar fashion. Hot & neutral to run the timer, and a switched hot to the aquastat.

Yes I understand but the problem is I will have 2 sets of TT connections, if I put my end switches on the triple aqua stat then it will not maintain boiler temperature due to no communication to stoker timer . Where if I put my end switches on the stoker timer than the triple aqua stat will not get a call for heat. that’s my understanding correct me if I am wrong also if I had put my end switches to the stoker timer and then added another set of wires from the timer to the triple to maintain boiler temperature will not work any ideas?

Ummm, leave all wiring as it existed before adding the timer, and just jumper the TT terminals on the timer.

Parallel the timer's output circuit to the stoker circuit...then either the new timer or existing TT would start it.

Make sense?
