@ October 25, 2012 8:54 AM in Teflon tape/paste and steam.Thanks guys, Ice, those Mill Rose brushes look real nice, I will look into those
@ October 24, 2012 7:24 PM in Teflon tape/paste and steam.I noticed a few guys like the Blue Monster Teflon tape, I cant seem to get my suppliers to locate it for me, anyone have a supplier/connection in NYC?
@ October 22, 2012 2:20 PM in Teflon tape/paste and steam.That's all my old boss would use, when we piped out steam boilers we only used Pr-Dope on the threads above the water line, below the water line we used spool wick and Pro-Dope, than we switched from Pro-Dope to Real Tuff, from what i remember it dose not harden, it is a good product
@ October 22, 2012 2:16 PM in Teflon tape/paste and steam.Thanks Ice, the Crew and I got alot of work done that day, the old head was Iron w/Iron nipples welded to the head, this is a pre-heater for a domestic HW system, 12 years after the original install the Di-electric unions and the iron nipples rotted away, we replaced the tube bundle as well, as you can see the bundle needed to be replaced along with the head, the new head is Stainless.
@ October 22, 2012 9:27 AM in Teflon tape/paste and steam.On new work we use teflon tape and real tuff, on older work when we will install a new nipple into an old fitting that is already stretched out a bit we like spool wick and real tuff, on this heat exchanger head we installed we used teflon tape and real tuff, 150psi in these 2" lines.
@ October 3, 2012 6:41 PM in Found this in ....Its a type steam separator, I believe it slows the velocity of the steam down as it exits the boiler separating water from the steam, Is it all brass/bronze? it would look good in our mongo bin with that copper....:)
@ October 1, 2012 6:53 PM in Advise on my header before hooking up to the mainsNice work, I would add some hangers, (clevis or teardrop hangers for support) but other than that it looks real nice
@ September 30, 2012 8:30 AM in Why Real Steam Pros Don't Use Copper for Steam PipingNice job as always Frank & Gordo, I do have a question, were you able to pitch the new section of pipe/pipes off the header toward the mains or did you have to pitch them back to the header? I have seen it done both ways, just curious what other guys do. I figure if you can pitch the pipe/pipes off the header toward the mains the condensate will flow along w/the steam to the end of the return, instead of flowing back down onto the stem coming out of the boiler.

@ September 12, 2012 6:08 PM in Nozzle TypeIt looks like the smallest nozzle I can use here w/the V74 is the .85 x 60 W like it says in the IO manual on the Burner Specs page (and as Paul had mentioned). Anyone else know of some ways to space the Riello nozzle/electrodes
@ September 12, 2012 2:53 PM in Nozzle TypeI just spoke to Riello tech dept, to see if they have a gauge, and the guy told me to use one of the screws that hold the Turbulator disc in place for all 3 of the dimensions for the F3 & F5, that sounds like a good tech tip, I know i heard George L. of Firedragon say in regards to nozzles thing A & W like the rootbeer for Riello's. The Tank is inside my house above ground, thanks Paul,
