Another pathway would be to use a pellet boiler or cord wood gasifier, heat a thermal storage with it, then go from the thermal storage via a booster coil or air handler into your duct work.
You will receive around $16,000 in rebates from NYSERDA.
Much more efficient system, no labor if you go...
What you are trying to do is against physics.
These coils are designed so the aluminum fins suck the heat out of the copper pipe (that's what aluminum is good for)
Using it the other way around will result in almost nothing; wild guess would be 10% efficiency
Assume your average oil cost was around $1/Liter the last few years; that is $3.785/Gal
1 Gal of oil has 138,000 BTU's
For 1,000,000 BTU's this would cost then $27.43/mmBTU
Let's assume an oil boiler efficiency of 85, then the cost is $32.27/mmBTU
1 Ton of wood pellets has 2,200 Lbs x 8,000...
my understanding by talking to OpOp 2 years ago at a show in Germany is that the first Kedel-model boilers were some sort of an OEM or private label deal
The RTB-model or second generation Kedel boiler (Ready-To-Burn) is/was manufactured at NBE in Denmark
New Horizons is actually also carrying Blackstar
Blackstar is the original Kedel made by OpOp in the Czech Republic
In my opinion, any new house designed and build today, new from the ground up, hould not need much of a heating system
The technology and building materials are there to build a very well insulated house with the required ventilation.
Look into passive solar, passive house concepts
"Invest" in technology from "1990" "for your new home" "without breaking the bank" ............ ???
Run, and don't look back, from this "opportunity"
My advise to you: do it once, do it wright or don't bother
Keep reading this forum
The only difference between your pump group install and the picture is the valve in the bypass line.
This valve is there to adjust your resistance in the 2 loops
You don't have the valve, so you cant regulate the flow trough the bypass line
Do you have "typical installation schematic" for this unit in combination with your low water temperature fan convectors to be hooked up with a pellet boiler with 120 gal of thermal storage?
More for the cooling then heat function
My wood chips finally gave up on sticking togetter.
This started me thinking of drying them from the top, instead of blowing air from underneath.
Would probably require much less air and a much smaller blower.
It is good to see that WoodMaster put some brain power into a "different" concept
I played around with catalytic designs myself for about 5 years.
My biggest concern is the longevity of the catalytic combustor.
If it is a ceramic type I don't see it to last more then 1 season, if at all...
Below some videos of the wood chips discharging system for the Windhager PuroWIN.
Caution; videos are boring to watch
It is AMAZING how these wood chips bridge togetter. There is about 2 to 3 feet of no supporting wood chips.
The wood chips eventually need to come down ..... .
What is the reason that hot air furnaces need to meet 0.15 Lbs/mmBTU for each category burn, starting 2020?
Boilers need to meet 0.1 Lbs/mmBTU starting in 2020 for each category
Just wondering why hot air furnaces are allowed to be 50% "dirtier" ???
Measured 2 samples of the wood chips for moisture content
121 gr of wood chips
32 gr of water lost during drying
Water Content = 32/121 = 26%
Moisture content = 35%
131 gr of wood chips
35 gr of water lost during drying
Water Content = 35/131 = 27%
Moisture content = 37%...
