Air Scoop

What are the opinions of using a standard Taco cast iron air scoop in lieu of a bronze micro-bubble style on a Triangle tube boiler?


  • If you're

    talking about a Taco Vortec air eliminator, it is a microbubble air eliminator.  As far as a cast iron vs. brass body, brass is always better and will last longer.  Even so, I've always used and been satisfied with a cast iron one.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.

    cast vs. brass

    I prefer the brass (Taco 4900 series) if the system has high flow/temperature settings.  The standard cast iron separator is great, but its better utilized on a low temperature/low flow system.
