Hi , My name is Christopher and I'm a 4 year apprentice , I was recently on a job where i hade to install a c-95 ny boiler with a varable speed injection system with a 356 control (tekmar) the question I have is that the customer wanted to install a wood boiler too and the intire house is infloor heat . So naturaly I thought where am I going to put the dump zone , So I talked to the Customer and asked Him if he would mind having a cast Iron rad in his garage to use as the dump zone . He told me know way!!! .Any ideas wold be helpful thanks.

    as with nearly....

    EVERY wood boiler there should be LARGE storage tank to dump the heat into and then be drawn off as needed...many people don't want the extra cost associated with this but it is the best way to do this.....and in your case maybe the only. As usual (with wood boilers) it sounds as if the customer/ HO is short sited.I had one customer that had a dump zone get so hot it melted the pipe insulation off the copper tubing going to the "dump" zone....I suggested the fix but they did not want to spend the $$$. kpc

    363

    The tekmar 363 is really set up to do this with two injection pumps. You can make everything automatic, not fire the gas boiler into the wood boiler under any circumstances, and integrate DHW in one control.

    Storage

    Of course, Kevin is right. The pipes I have labelled "wood boiler" would actually be actually connected to the storage tank.
