1.

Purging is done to clean furnace from combustible gases by running ID Fan and FD Fan at atleast 30% load for 5 minutes to avoid furnace explosion.

Furnace explosion may be checked by timely purging and adjusting firing properly using right quantity of primary and secondary air and timely oil support and avoiding leakage of fuel oil in boiler. Furnace must be purged properly again if flame is not established during lightup of boiler.
