@ February 20, 2004 8:58 AM in Mr Hunt ... to the ERThey had a segment on co statistics. I was glad to see they finally showed something on it that is broadcast to all.
@ February 16, 2004 4:05 PM in seeking input on Munchkin dependabilityAFUE (Anual Flue Utilization Efficiency)is a fixed rating achived under strick qudelins and specific testing criterior. It remains constant. Stack efficiencies change based on co2 and stack temperature. The Munchkin brings the return water from the heating media back through a set of coils behind the target wall that are cooler than the flue gas being exspelled out in to the atmosphere that has to run passed them thus sucking the temperature out of the flue gas and transfering it in to the water for reuse thus decreasing the flue gas temp being exspelled. The temperture of the return controls the efficiency by sucking the flue gas temps down to no greater than 140* and down to say 70* this produces 100% or greater STACK efficiencies.

@ February 16, 2004 8:55 AM in HTP products rock!I have Tom Sheilds cmming in to HTP on Weds to demonstate it and we are thinkig of purchasing one for in the plant and to do repairs if needed. Nice work take pride in your art.
@ February 16, 2004 8:49 AM in Electrical Help- Munchkin to Three systems -Hydro-Radiant-HotWatcenter with an end sw to bring on the Munchie or use one of our pool heaters it is a 20 gallon tank with 1 1/2" supply and return and installa aquastat on it and let it cntrol the water temp in the tank and have all the zone pumps pull from it. This will simplify it all. You must use primary pumping.

@ February 13, 2004 7:24 PM in Pinnacle Rumblewhat is the gas pressure? What type of fuel are you feeding it and what is the pressure drop when it lights off? What sise gas pipe and how long is it and how is the venting terminated and is the vent with in the specs? If Lp was it field converted/
@ February 12, 2004 7:36 PM in munchkin gas leakUnless one of us happens to be on the wall on sunday. Dose any other water heating equipment co offer these hours? 8am to 8pm mon thru fri and sats 8am to 11am.
@ February 12, 2004 7:24 PM in almost got a Munchkin; also, will they ever make 'tween sizes?
@ February 12, 2004 7:05 PM in Sweet Smelling MunckinCould be you got the sweetest one in the bunch or simply the smell of new. Is the system antifreezed? If so it can smell sweet for a bit.

@ February 11, 2004 6:10 PM in almost got a Munchkin; also, will they ever make 'tween sizes?The T50 and the T80 with 5:1 turn down now. Thanks for considering the use of our product. As you can see the Munchkin is a very poular system that is why it is worth the wait. When you want the best the best is waiting for you.
@ February 10, 2004 8:01 PM in Hey munchkin manIf piping say an 80,000 80M with a short peice of 1/2" ID pipe you would still have plenty of gas however the lenght has a limitthat if exceeded the rate will drop off quickley, and we have found it better to be safe. See instructions are like the speed limit. If we say 55 mph most contractors will go 70 mph. We like to keep the odds in your and our favor. Buy the way our manual references the lenghts vrs sise and shows you the btu's available. Thanks
@ February 10, 2004 7:51 PM in Another Munchkin concernSO JOHNS IDEA WILL WORK FINE AND I HAVE SEEN IT DONE MANY TIMES NOT OLY ON THE MUNVHKIN BUT MANY OTHER CONDESING UNITS.
@ February 9, 2004 9:15 PM in munchkinThe main problem I have seen and heard of with the second stage reg is freezing if the first stage reg is letting the gas out of the tank to fast as liquid. This is at some -40 so it freezes any moisture in the second stage reg. Never saw a reg blow up from modulation. The reg being less than ten feet from the Munchkin can cause the flame to pulsate because the diaphram is moving up and down violently trying to stabelize. Hey Tim
