vacum steam systems

Steamhead Member Posts: 16,726
were actually Vapor systems that could run below atmospheric pressure on mild days. These are some of the best systems out there.

Try to find some manufacurer's names or take some pictures and post them. We can help you identify the systems this way.

    vacum steam systems

    I have several questions concerning this type steam I have had to occasions to work on them I know that this may be basic but with very few of them left I need help.
    1) Do you still have to flush this type steam??

    2) Will there be any problems if for example I have to change the pigtail, I know that this is a two pipe and it is closed??

    3) Are teese type systems really good??

    I found the two vacum systems in residential, I have heard that they were really for commercial, If anyone has any advice that would be apprieciated.
  • What type of system is it?

    Any names on the really old stuff?

    You can have the pigtail changed. Why do you need to, if I may ask?

    You still have to maintain the boiler and controls (by flushing) as the instructions state.

    Is it possible that we are talking about a vapor system?
