Gauge Glass Float

@ March 1, 2007 9:09 AM in Gauge Glass Float

In a sight glass on a steam boiler there is sometimes a little ball that floats in the glass to help indicate the level. Does anyone know who manufactures these balls or the entire gauge glass assembly? I have checked Conbraco & John C. Ernst catalogs and did not see them.

Consolidated Boiler Corp Still in Business?

@ November 8, 2006 4:30 PM in Consolidated Boiler Corp sill in Business?

Does anyone know if Consolidated Boiler Corp is still around. We have a commercial steel boiler tagged Consolidated Model K62 - Produced in Needham Mass. Year 1999. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you, Joe Moody

@ September 6, 2006 11:10 AM in flue pipe ratings?

Ken & Robert - thanks for the fast response. We are a wholesaler of heating equipment. I called our "sheet metal companny" and they indicated that they do not have a submittal or specification sheet for this type of product. My customer put this on a new oil fired boiler and used 12" single wall pipe. Now one engineer is breaking chops looking for the ratings on this flue pipe. I just found it kind of strange that with all the liability going on in the world the company that manufactures this stuff for most of the New York City Area could sell this type of product with out their own specification to its limitations.

@ September 6, 2006 8:58 AM in flue pipe ratings?

Does anyone have ratings for standard flue pipe? I had a contractor call me this morning looking for a submittal for an engineer. I was shocked when my supplier told me they do not have ratings for the flue pipe they sell me. I would think that there would be requirements as to what size gauge and temperatures you can use. Any information would be appreciated.

Heat Manager

@ August 4, 2006 2:58 PM in Beckett Heat Manager

We have sold many Heatmanagers in the last 12 months. This is a great product that does work when operating properly in the correct application. An outdoor reset control controls the temperature in your house based on outdoor temperature. Who cares if it is hot or cold outside, your inside temperature should be the temperature that is being monitored. The Heatmanger is reacting to the indoor temperature. As discussed earlier in this thread a few of the original models had some minor issues. If you have a Heat Manager that you think may not be working correctly I would suggest calling Beckett. They have stood behind this product 100%. Any warranty we have had they have reacted to quiclky to make sure the end user is satisfied.

Do you have an email to be contacted at?

@ February 12, 2006 10:22 PM in Why is my sight glass so dirty?

When you flush the boiler you are only cleaning a portion of the whole heating system. You may want to try a steam clean such as Squick to clean up the system.

Look at the TH8110U1003 from Honeywell. It has remote indoor sensor capability. Joe Moody www.patriot-supply.com 866-321-4822

No need for Outdoor reset

@ June 25, 2005 10:45 AM in outdoor reset

The Beckett Heat Manager is a great control option for improving your system efficiency and saving money on your heating bills. However, the Heat Manager is not an outdoor reset control, it does not require an outdoor sensor which makes the installation much easier. Beckett calls it a "fuel economizer." The price on the Heat Manager is very inexpensive compared to what you would pay for an outdoor reset control. We have sold many of these controls over the last six months and we have had very positive feedback on it from our customers. Here is a little idea from Beckett's website on how it works. HeatManager automatically adjusts burner firing patterns and average boiler water temperature to match system heat load. Its action is similar to outdoor reset method, but does not require an outdoor sensor. HeatManager works with the existing boiler control/AquastatTM to reduce fuel consumption, wear on parts and flue emissions. For complete, detailed explanation, and reference on HeatManager visit

You can look at an L4006A1959 from Honeywell - it does not do all the functions of a Tekmar but it is cheaper in price

Amtrol

@ March 13, 2005 9:25 PM in 40 Gallon Amtrol Boilermate

I have an Amtrol too. It is not a good design at all. The coil gasket leaks from the bottom when th e boiler water cools, and it does not produce good hot water. To change that gasket is a real pain in the butt. It is a poor design. I am going to change it soon and put in a Crown MS-53.

@ February 27, 2005 11:00 PM in remote thermostat

The T8665A and W8665 are what you need. There is a company online www.patriot-supply.com that I purchsed these same items from.

@ February 17, 2005 8:00 PM in brand preferences for indirect water heater

The funny thing is nobody is talking about how well each model works compared to one another. Unfortunetly we talk price instead of price compared to production. Some brands 30 gallon models make more hot water than other brands 50 gallon models.

@ January 18, 2005 10:58 PM in TACO radiant block has anyone tried it and how was it ?

We have purchased 4 of them. They seem to work good. Try www.patriot-supply.com if you have trouble finding one.
