Open on Rise Clamp on Aqua Stat as a Safety Device?

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

I discovered the house has a DHW circulator system designed to keep hot water at the far end master bathroom. Currently not being utilized. Any thoughts on scavenging the clamp on, open on rise aqua stat to shut the stoker off if there is ever a serious over temp that the dump zone can't handle?
