By the way, is that your lunch (dole) heating up in number 12?

    False water line

    I have a problem with slow returns on a 175 HP boiler. The boiler is fairly new. Its one pipe steam. I want to install a boiler feed tank but I cannot install steam traps on all the drip lines. I want to build a false water line as mention in the Lost Art of Steam Heating. Is this possible with a boiler of this size?

    I have done this Quite a few times as per, Lost Art including removing a couple of condensate pumps that shouldn't have been there in the first place. One or two, as I recall were of the'"if it doesn't work you don't have to pay me" variety. It works like a charm. They paid.

    That is a Dole vent, silly! The inverted bucket kind. :)

    Pressure builds, she vents. Easy.
