Indirect Water heater

Jim_109 Member Posts: 45
How can I compute the specs for an indirect hot water heater? Regardless of the manufacturer, all the indirect specs are based on much larger boilers than mine.

For example according to a manufacturers literature with a boiler output of 112,000 the 40 gallon indirect has;

the 1st hour rating of: 180 gallons
continous flow of: 150 gallons
Peak flow gallons per 10/minutes: 50

The numbers above are based on 200 degree water temp and 90 degree temperature rise.

What numbers can I expect with my Net I.B.R. Output (MBH)3 pass boiler is 58,000
