As one of the industry’s leading manufacturers of boilers, packaged steam generators and thermal fluid heaters, Vapor Power International has everything you need to keep your steam boilers operating in top condition. That includes complete retrofit upgrade kits to outfit your Circulatic with the latest in controls and components. All built to the highest quality standards and codes, including ASME, FM the U.S. Coast Guard, ABS, CGA and Lloyd’s Registry. Like our boilers, our retrofit upgrade kits are developed using the most advanced production and technology to ensure the superior quality of our products.
Retrofit for increased efficiency
New, microprocessor-based control panels are available to retrofit obsolete control systems on our steam generators and thermal fluid heaters. These panels are equipped with modern digital coil and stack temperature controls for comprehensive monitoring.
The new panels provide a higher level of safety and state-of-the-art controls, with features beyond the capacity of conventional controls. These features significantly reduce service cost and downtime. The flame safeguard control provides diagnostic information to aid the operator if troubleshooting becomes necessary.
Vapor Power steam generators and heaters require fewer and more reliable components than what is in your existing control panel. As a result, wiring diagrams are simpler and service parts requirements are reduced.
Return on Investment
The new Vapor Power control panel will pay for itself within a short period of time. The reason is the panel’s ability to help minimize downtime by assisting with troubleshooting and eliminating the need for outside service if control problems occur.
Your control panel can be replaced with the Flame Safeguard of your choice (Honeywell or Siemens), or upgraded to include linkageless technology.
Flame Safeguard Controls
Upgrade your existing panel and eliminate difficult troubleshooting, obsolete components and the risk of going down with no readily available replacements.
- Keyboard display module
- Communications interface that links the burner control to PC’s in local or remote locations
- First-Out Expanded Enunciator that provides specific hold and lockout information at a glance
The RM 7800 flame safeguard control provides critical information at your fingertips. The English text readout includes information on:
- Sequence status
- Hold status
- Lockout alarm status
- Flame signal strength
- Total hours and cycles of operation
- Fault history
Upgrade kits come complete with all component materials and revised electrical drawings from the factory
Fuel-Air Control lets you develop entirely independent combustion curves for each fuel. Microprocessor-based control allows for more accurate control. This accuracy increases fuel efficiency and offers system payback in a short period of time.
Reduced setup time
Complete setup for a two-fuel system is just 4 to 6 hours.
Easier and Faster
Easier to service than mechanical cam and linkage assemblies
Include actuator feedback, component anti-swap protection and curve verification algorithms
Speed up troubleshooting and reduce downtime

The digital temperature controls used in the upgrade kits have several advantages over existing controls in units manufactured prior to 1993.
- Microprocessor-based technology offers dependable temperature monitoring and improved protection of your boiler or heater.
- Precise readout of the actual process temperature, as well as the alarm set point
- Easy testing of the alarm circuit
- Kits are pre-wired and pre-programmed for simple and quick installation
- New, thermocouple wires are included for connection to your existing thermocouples. New thermocouples can also be included if desired.
- Connection sketch and instructions are included
- Factory assistance and technical support during and after installation are available
Keep in mind that if your existing controls are not tested and verified regularly, they might not be providing protection for your unit. Ask your local service representative to perform a safety test on your existing temperature controls. Upgrade kits are comparably priced to most existing controls (if they are still available) and are a better investment.
