Subject: Re: Delta Queen Smoke - Sanding Flues?


Sam,
Help me (and maybe others) understand something: If the boilers are being fired at full rate, why does a sudden reduction in steam being used cause smoke? I can undeerstand an increase in boiler steam pressure when the throttle is pinched - less steam going out, still running the burners full-bore. However, I don't understand why this would cause more smoke. I can understand the boat popping off in this case. Help me understand, please!
