Taco Pump Number

Unfortunately the Burnham boiler bypass kit part number 107795-01 is on back order for a while. Does any one know which Taco variable speed pump is included in the kit in order to make my own boiler bypass? It is shown on page 48 of the X-2 I&O manual.

Thanks,
Noel

    Since it has a temp sensor, it looks like it could be a 007-VDTF5.

    I was looking at the 007-VDTF5, but it operates on delta-t and not minimum return temp for boiler protection. I wonder if the Burnham circulator is made by Taco just for them. The main reason I selected the Burnham boiler was for the ease of installing this manifold for protecting the boiler without mixing valves or the space I needed for primary/secondary plumbing. The system I will be installing this on is 1-1/4 copper with monoflo tees and cast iron radiators.

    It does come with a sensor for return water protection. Dimensions of the pump are likely the same as all the other pumps.

    I would call Taco or Burnham to get that answered.

    I would pipe you own manifold just put a union where the pump will go (or just two unions dry fitted) so you can get you apart when the pump shows up

    Product data sheet for one of the Burnham boilers (XPV?) says:

    There are a couple of solutions to your situation;

    1. You can do as others said, pipe in a “blank” circ now and when it comes in, install. What I mean by blank is to take a piece of pipe the length of a circ, attach to the flanges and shut off the valve(s) on that loop.

    2. You can use the VT2218 Delta T circulator. However, you will not use it in the Delta T mode (which is the default mode) but rather use it in the Boiler Protection mode.








    There are several ways to wire in this circulator;

    1. Wire it to the system circulator so that whenever there is a call for heat, this circ will run also
    2. Use a SR-EXP controller and wire it to the Primary Terminal



    I hope this helps,

    Enjoy

    Thanks to all who helped. I just received confirmation that my bypass kit will be here today, a month and a half early. It is pretty bad with how long lead times are taking in order to get parts.

    The pump that came in the kit is a Taco 007-HVSF5-4IFC. The best match I could find on the internet was the 007-HVSF5 on supplyhouse.com which cost a lot more money than the Burnham boiler bypass kit part number 107795-01. I know the IFC in the 007-HVSF5-4IFC part number means internal flow check, but I don't know what the -4 means.

    Does -4 mean 4-lobe flange?
