Yes Bernhard........

That Ghost sound lives in many small gas fired burners {-) [size=78%][/size]........you would think after a few hours @ 80 degrees C he would burn away and [size=78%][/size]never to return.......but no....he survives

bonnour,


Instead of this ghost sound, I would highly and kindly suggest you to add a whistle even on an existing steam plant which has no ferrule for.


Furthermore, the RC valve of the whistle can help you to drop down the steam pressure if needed.


My solutions:


   - With a vertical safety valve: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9zPSqf2rMw


   - With a horizontal safety valve: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4jLVi3uFr4
