Install Low Loss Header Here? Discuss.
As per spec, I have to install a 2-½” LLH here in the last of the empty wall space.
See pic please.
Then I have to pipe these four (4) 300MBH boilers into it. I have no room. None. Zero.
Don’t tell me to ask the GC/client/Engineer/Virgin Mary/anyone at all for more space. It’s not going to happen.
If I could turn a low loss header on its side I might have a shot. Of course I’ll be eliminating its ability to vent air automatically but I may be able to weld a new top air vent into it or something. Same for dirt separation.
Keep in mind I’ve got 6 pumps to fit into here and a boatload of piping and controls.
My question to you is: do you know of a horizontal low loss header or a standard LLH that may do the job mounted horizontally?
If not, then I’m going to have to propose we eliminate it in favor of closely spaced tees and some additional pipe work... for which there is no room either.
Ugh. I shoulda went to Chiropractor school.
