Central Boiler / Dampener solenoid making a buzzing sound
« on: January 11, 2015, 07:03:15 PM »
Hey guys, I just hooked up my 6048 for the first time and turned the power on and the dampener opened up and it makes a buzzing sound. Not sure if this is normal as I just bought it used from my neighbor and I'm still green to the owb. Any help is appreciated.

Plumbing / Head loss calculation
« on: January 07, 2015, 10:08:14 AM »
I'm having trouble with the baseboard on a long zone in my house. The baseboards feel warm but don't really emit much heat. The other 2 zones which are considerably smaller heat up no problem. I have a feeling that the taco 007 on my indoor oil system can't handle the head loss. The problem zone is approximately 100 feet of 3/4 copper with about 30 feet of baseboard. Can anyone tell me what the head loss rate is in 3/4 copper so I can try to figure out whether it's the pump or a delta t issue? Any help is appreciated.

My lines from the wood boiler to the house is 90' dead level. No rise on feed or return. It will be going through a 50 plate HX. Any help is appreciated.

Hey guys. Anybody have any suggestions on heat exchangers? I have one I'm watching on Ebay for $169.00. It's a 40 plate and its dimensions are: 5" wide by 12" long and 5" deep. Does this sound right? Also it has 1 1/4 mpt ports. Any suggestions are appreciated.
