Boiler Project Update. I think the Valentines Day startup is now a fantasy. I have been swamped with my little side business consuming most my weekends and evenings. I was able to get some work done however this weekend when caught up. The "boiler room" a 16 x 15 room inside my pole barn will house the tank and the EKO. Heres kind of a bad angle shot of the room..... Basic 2x4 construction, 2x6 ceiling joists, leaving a nice loft above for storage. My barn has an inside wall height of 12 feet, and the new boiler room will have an 8 foot inside ceiling, leaving about 40 inches of space above to stash light weight things. Probably run a small beam to support the roof inside the boiler room. The Welder called today, and using my Tig, he was able to weld in the 1" SS couplings, which I will be able to attach outer and inner threaded fittings, nipples, unions etc to get the coils hooked up. This guy is a wizzard with the TIG torch. Look at his beautiful welds. He's a career welder at the plant, so this was quite easy for him. If I had done it I probably wouldnt publish the pics. We opted to remove and patch the bottom fitting. If I ever need to remove all the water I can just suck it out the top with a Wilden pump. I can still gravity drain it down to the bottom foot or so in the tank. Hoping I wont have to do this often.
