Boilers are central to heating systems of different kinds, and until recently, many were of cast iron. It is not easy to substitute them for anything else as they can cause problems, such as interference between circulators operating together.
Hydronic balancing is an important part of distribution optimisation of water in buildings’ HVAC systems. This balance ensures that the climate indoors is at an optimum condition by using energy efficiently and reducing operating costs. This is possible with the use of hydraulic separators.
What Are They and What Do They Do
Hydraulic separators prevent air and dirt in the system. Installing a hydraulic system is like having every circuit acting as a “stand-alone” unit. It works by separating primary and secondary piping with the help of tees that are close together.
This concept is standard in many secondary circuits, served by a single primary loop.
How They Work
Hydraulic separators offer the following advantages when they work in conjunction with primary and secondary piping:
- Remove unwanted dirt and air particles in the HVAC unit
- Prevent damage to other components in the system, thereby preventing more costs on repairs
- Work flawlessly with smaller boilers, currently in use
- Cope with higher flow resistance
The units currently available on the market are small enough to save space, made from copper, work well with heating systems that use oxygenated water, equipped with wall brackets, and have a port which can get rid of sediment easily.
Hydraulic separators are popular in new building projects as well. Used to renovate old cooling systems to boost efficiency, this unit works with temperatures ranging from 0-110˚C and at pressures ranging from 0-10 bars. You should try one now today.
