Low Loss Header for Small System

So I was looking for a low loss header for a small hydronic system I recently designed. This one is not the largest Taco makes, but a 6" #5900 'Flex Balance Plus' certainly makes a statement.

This system is an elementary school served by three DeDietrich oil-fired eutectic cast iron boilers moving about 460 gpm out to the system. I specified a pair of Taco's larger "007's" too. Those will be installed soon.

The second photo is a Taco KS for a different project, serving a chilled water plant for another school. The variable frequency drives behind them have their own zip code.

    That would be a tough one to change on a Saturday night. " Gee, I think I have one of those on the truck".

    Nice work,
