Question about RTO TPI G3482 Commercial Recess Mounted 6,826 BTU Ceiling Heater Power: Phase 1
Where U work we have 2 laundry rooms ,last year the pilot light kept going out due to moisture in the tank ,well the other one is acting up .I cleaned the whole unit , a local company came in and changed the high limit, ,checked the exhaust venting ,they said the gas valve is ok. my boss said they think there isn't enough outside air, the vent is directly behind the unit and it was open about 3/8 of inch , which it has been for about a year and a 1/2, they say its also because of the 6 dryers , but the room isn't used that much. my opinion is it goes out everytime we have really cold weather and we are again getting condensation in the line with a 1/2 filled tank / how close am I to possibly being correct .? should an additive be added to the fuel tank .? let me know a.s.a.p. please
Thermocouples are either good, or bad. When the pilot stays lit after relighting, the thermocouple is good. I would suspect a downdraft problem. Has any chimney work been done? Do you have some of the exhaust tube (at least 3 - 4 inches) protruding into the chimney? Have you done ANY landscaping that could change the way air moves across the exhaust? Make sure you have the front covere on. It will prevent drafts & gusts from blowing the pilot out. Moisture in the tank shouldn't be a problem. The moisture will settle on the bottom of the tank but you draw your gas from the top. Make sure your fuel filters are all clean. They should be replaced every year. They are relatively inexpensive, compared to down time.

If you have a breeze, that can blow out a pilot.
If the thermocouple is weak or ill positioned(the pilot flame not in the
center of the thermocouple rod), that will cause it to go out.
Mosture or water in with the gas, insolate part of the line or see you supplier about why it would have mosture in it.
I donrt; know anything about additives.
I would go with redirecting the outside air to avoid drafts.
I have had a lot of weak or bad thermocouples that caused the pilots to go out . They are cheep . Replace it.
