When a draft failure occurs, the flue gases will go up the tube and warm the snap disk. So, lets say at 120 degrees the snap disc closes and a train horn could be activated
This way would provide fewer false alarms from small temporary draft fluxuations since it would take a minute to warm the snap disc.
