Burners furnished on the furnaces and unit heaters will be of the following kinds, as specified (see 6.2). (Burner kinds HO, GLO, and GHO will apply to group 3 units only.)
Burner kind LO - Light-oil-fired (grade 2). Burner kind G - Gas-fired (natural, manufactured, mixed, or liquefied petroleum gas), as specified (see 6.2). Burner kind HO - Heavy-oil-fired (grade 4).
