Coal Boiler & Outdoor Reset
I am presently heating my house with a coal stoker boiler,Keystoker KA-2. My house is set-up for radiant floor heat. I am using a Tekmar 3 Way Mixing Valve #712 to maintain 130F water temp to my manifolds. The system works great but when we get the extremes like we have this winter and then the Spring and Fall dyas with cold nights and warm days, I would like to consider an outdoor reset system.
Tekmar has an actuating motor for this valve and they told me that Model # 360 Control would be what I need.<a href="http://www.tekmarcontrols.com/prod/360.shtml">http://www.tekmarcontrols.com/prod/360.shtml</a>
As a carpenter/woodworker that put this system together with some help from others I was wondering about this set-up.
All I want to do is have the outdoor temp "adjust" the 3 way mixing valve as needed based on the outdoortemp. But the info on the Boiler Control 360 shows the pumps etc. being controlled. Can I just wire this to the actuating motor on the mixing valve only?
Would really appreciate your help.
