    CB Edge 750 water Temp Problem

    I know on our G series we have a recirculation pump on the furnace to ensure flow through the tank is sufficient to maintain even temps.

    CB Edge 750 water Temp Problem

    One, is the gauge in the house accurate. But assuming it is, I'd guess you have a layering or mixing problem in the water jacket on the OWB. You're pulling 160-ish degree water off the water jacket, but where the control probe is located in the tank it's 180. Just a wild guess. I've seen it a...

    sunflower screenings in a coal boiler

    Heatmaster's B series is an auger fed boiler with the capability of burning screenings, coal, chips and more. Their number is 877 325-9792.

    Pump on return side pumping AWAY from boiler?

    Definitely put it where it belongs. It'll have issues indefinitely until it gets on the supply outlet. There's no pressure on that unit so it needs to be mounted low to prevent cavitation.

    New here and trying to better my system. Hardy KB 125 5- 6 cords per season. Southern Indiana

    Might a little, but ¾ copper is about the same as the ID of a 1" pex fitting.

    Heatmaster G200 Install thread

    An 8 degree temp drop (Dt) means it has plenty of flow. The Alpha would have been around a 15-20 Dt I'm guessing which is pretty normal. But either way you've got the best kind of heat there is.

    Need new door but manufacturer went out of business

    I agree with what they said, Sequoyah is long gone, a local fab shop is your best bet.

    Heatmaster G200 Install thread

    With one coil in the duct the alpha should have heated fine. Just with a larger temp drop (Delta t).

    New here and trying to better my system. Hardy KB 125 5- 6 cords per season. Southern Indiana

    I would agree, pipe in parallel (domestic water first) with larger piping would allow use of smaller pumps, not drop wood consumption.

    Post some pics of the furnace and indoor plumbing. Then we'll have a bit more to work off of.

    Plumbing advice for owb

    I'd plumb the 20 plate first in the loop, then the forced air heat exchanger. In one loop. It won't be perfect by any stretch, but it'll put a lot of heat in the house and you'll love the hot water. Those CB units aren't real efficient, but they work. With thermopex in the ground you can...

    help with hookup

    Several questions- it sounds like you have it tied into a oil boiler in the house? You said furnace and to some that means forced air. Just making sure. Is the plate exchanger for domestic water? If so I'd plumb it in first, then the oil boiler to avoid fluctuating domestic water temps. Main...

    Creosote and what dissolves it?

    A piece of high tensile fence wire on a cordless drill is nice for grinding out creosote.

    shop is warmer than thermostat setting without the pump running. and yes it's cold outside

    That's where my mind was going. It appears to me that the way it's plumbed there is a possibility that the pump on the outdoor boiler could out pressure on the mixing valve and not have equal pressure at the hot and cold inlets on it. This could keep it from maintaining a set temp going into the...

    shop is warmer than thermostat setting without the pump running. and yes it's cold outside

    I don't see a heat exchanger either. I'm thinking the main pump on the outdoor furnace is pushing through the mixing valve and putting flow into the floor? Why did it work before? I've got to be missing something.

    shop is warmer than thermostat setting without the pump running. and yes it's cold outside

    There has to be an air leak in the stove somewhere to keep heating up. By the pictures it appears like the pump on the furnace is running continuously, with the one in the shop starting and stopping? If the supply manifold going in the floor stays hot you've got some kind of ghost flow going on...

    Heat two buildings with one boiler?

    Just doing some math here, 3/4 is barely big enough to supply a 60,000 BTU heater at that distance. I'd do 1".

    shop is warmer than thermostat setting without the pump running. and yes it's cold outside

    Would need more details on how it's piped. Are there two pumps? Primary/ secondary?

    Heat two buildings with one boiler?

    I would need to know distances in piping on the two loops but normally I'd use two pumps, flow rates stay higher with cheap smaller pumps. Garage may heat ok with 3/4” lines if it's a short distance.

    Adding a second pump

    I've done what you're describing. Ideally both pumps would be pushing (rather than pulling) as it lessens the chance of cavitation. Since it doubles the head, the flow rate will increase. The output of the boiler won't increase tho, just flow. Not sure if you need more flow or not without...

    Adding owb to existing radiant system?

    I would usea plate heat exchanger. Keeps pressure on the electric boiler as it's supposed to be.

    Any WV Gassers?

    There are several brands of outdoor gasification boilers now that have been on the market for a while. They are designed to run without storage and I don't think would be more than a couple grand more than a traditional OWB.

    Question: Pre planning boiler system

    3" PVC is only big enough for two ¾" pex with fairly minimal insulation. With no 90's. I'd go bigger and keep it straight, with a pull rope.

    Question: Pre planning boiler system

    Not sure I'd want to splice underground later. No need for control wire as it's just a continuous run pump on the main loop to the house. All secondary loops are inside.
