Vaporstat Settings

Posted in the Strictly Steam section

( <a href="http://www.heatinghelp.com/forum-thread/133504/Advanced-Venting-Q">http://www.heatinghelp.com/forum-thread/133504/Advanced-Venting-Q</a> )

about some issues I am trying to iron out.

I got the Vaporstat, snubber, and low pressure gauge that were recommended. What should I set the Diff and Main on the Vaporstat to for one pipe steam?

BTW any body want to buy a Pressuretrol. Practically new, I am in the Boston area.

Make me an offer.

    Start with

    a Main setting of 8 ounces and a Differential of 4. The system will run between 8 and 4 ounces. You have pretty good venting and it shouldn't need more than that.
