Steam Boiler Installation Details
Working on my first steam boiler install. Trying to avoid any issues, and I have some steamfitter questions.
1) Drop header - EDIT... is there a minimum drop desired, or just a 4-6” pipe nipple adequate? I figured out a solution. I can angle the main downward so it can be rotated and aligned over the drop header.
2) I’m re-doing the end of the main to remove a “custom” welded eccentric reducer and bring the return inline with the supply. Question: Any reason you can’t use 1-1/4” or 1-1/2” for the vent header to maximize it. Or make it a “U” shape and connect both ends of a 1” or 1-1/2” pipe? Or is that just a complete waste? Is a single 1” vent plenty with 2-3 big mouths a Gorton 2?
