sizing steam boiler with major changes
I have a customer with a steam boiler rated for 4650 feet of steam, it is being fired at 1.61MM btu per hour. I ve measured the radiation on the remaining three apartments( originally there were 5, all are large) and could only find about 1100 feet of steam. The main heaqder is 6 inch pipe. Am I right in using a boiler that is rated for 2021 feet of steam and using two 4 inch supplies or am I going too large or small.
