- Incomplete Combustion
- Incomplete combustion happens when there is not enough oxygen to allow a fuel to burn completely
Incomplete combustion produces
water, some carbon dioxide, some carbon
monoxide and carbon particles – the carbon
particles are also known as soot
- Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas – it reduces the amount of oxygen that a person’s blood can carry. Some faulty boilers produce carbon monoxide
- Deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning can be reduced by having boilers serviced regularly, and by using carbon monoxide alarms.
