top fed gravity hot water heating

leonzleonz Member Posts: 327
As much as I want to I cannot afford to buy the currently available AM Daniels 1928 first edition of Steam and hot water heating and I am hoping the fine members have pictures to share of top fed or bottom fed gravity hot water heating systems??

Have any of you used the two inch tapping's in modern boilers and expanded them to 4 inch pipe above the boilers steam chest using 2 to 4 or larger reducers for the up feed and return piping?.

    You can choose to do what you want, but you cannot choose the consequences.

    Where would you find a steam chest on a mod/con?

    It would be for a coal stoker boiler with an H stamp that could be used for steam or hot water.

    www.alternateheatingsystems.com
    AHS S500, S1000, S1500 coalgun with (2 2.5 inch plus) supply tapping's and 2+ 2.5 inch return tapping's
    The ASME H stamp can be purchased for an extra charge from Alternate Heating Systems.
