Hydronic Components and Boiler Primer
Fill Valves, Expansion Tanks, Air Separators, Flo-Controls, and Zone Valves. What you need to know about them, what they do, how to select, size, and set them. What really goes on inside the piping? The effect of the pump on system pressures, and why the expansion tank rules Pumping away from what? It is still misunderstood by many, and why it is so important to good system operation? How to put all these pieces together to eliminate air, minimize assembly time, and maximize venting and purging capabilities. Input, Output, MBH, DOE, IBR, Net, Gross, GPH, EDR, Square Feet. What they mean and how to use them? Natural Pressures, boiler requirements, pipe & tubing sizing, minimum pressure drops, using and reading the code tables. One pipe/two pipe systems, advantages and disadvantages, sizing oil lines, OSV’s, Fusible valves, Filters, Tiger loops, Combustion Air, Atmospheric gas burners, Draft, Oil nozzles, pump pressures, Excess Air, Stack temperatures, Smoke and Efficiencies.
