separating equalizer and header drip
I have a number of customers who have steam boilers with the steam supply coming out of the side. The installers put a T on the supply outlet with the top of the T going either to an undripped header( basically a waste of a header) or strait to the mains. The bottom of the T connects to the Hartford loop. In essence there is an equalizer but no header drip. Is there any reason not to leave the T in place and tap in to the end of the header and drip the header in to the most convenient location on the wet return?
