Sample text

Water circulates in a series of finned tubes whilst the combusted fuel effects an external heat transfer. These are typical of the heat exchangers in domestic boilers. All of these boiler types may be fired by solid fuel, gas or oil. 45 Condensing Gas Boilers Condensing boilers have a greater area of heat transfer surface than conventional boilers. In addition to direct transfer of heat energy from the burning fuel, heat from the flue gases is used as secondary heating to the water jacket. Instead of the high temperature (200†250ƒC) flue gases and water vapour discharging to atmosphere, they are recirculated around the water jacket by a fan.

Compared with conventional installations a considerable amount of pipework and fitting time can be saved by using an expansion vessel to absorb expansion of water in the primary circuit. However, the boiler and calorifiers must be specified to a high quality standard to withstand the water pressure. All pipework and equipment must be well insulated. 44 Types of Boiler Cast iron sectional † made up of a series of hollow sections, joined together with left- and right-hand threaded nipples to provide the heat capacity required.

Hot and cold taps, air gap 520 mm or 2 \ sum of orifice diameters (take greater value). For example, a bath with two taps of 20 mm internal diameter inlet orifice: 20 mm or 2 \ (20 + 20 mm) = 80 mm. Air gap = 80 mm minimum. Water cisterns or storage vessels † pipework supplying potable water must discharge into an unobstructed air gap between the regulating device water inlet to the vessel and the overflow or warning pipe. In this situation the air gap should be 520 mm or 2 \ internal diameter of the regulating valve inlet orifice (take greater value).
