By James E. Brumbaugh

Preserve it cool or warmth issues up

This 3rd quantity of Audel's HVAC Library promises a finished, hands-on advisor to fitting, servicing, and repairing all easy air-conditioning platforms in either new and older building. You'll additionally locate entire assurance of specialised heating units-radiators, radiant heating structures, stoves, fireplaces, warmth pumps, and indoor/outdoor pool warmers, plus lovers, exhaust structures, air filters, and extra. It's what you want to entire your HVAC reference library.
* Make exact calculations for AC procedure output
* Tailor AC structures for older construction
* discover ways to set up and repair today's well known digital air cleaners and filters
* carrier much less universal heating structures equivalent to coal-fired furnaces
* set up, retain, and service humidifiers and dehumidifers
* deal with radiators, convectors, and baseboard heating units

Figure 2-25) Stone Lined Another approach to tank wall protection is to apply a thick lining of low sulfur cement to the inside. After the tank is baked, a thick stone lining completely covers the tank walls. This lining is very hard to break. Normally, no anode rod is used on stone lined tanks. This eliminates one maintenance step. However stone lined tanks weigh around 50% more than glasslined tanks. (Figure 2-26) Stone lined tanks are readily available in standard sizes of 40 to 120 gallons.

When the fluid in the collectors is cold (usually on winter nights), it becomes more dense and drops to the bottom of the collector loop. Warmer solar fluid from inside the building rises to the top of the collectors. Eventually, all the solar fluid is slowly flowing in reverse through the system. This chilling process can start another similar flow in the water loop between the heat exchanger and the storage tank. The final result is that heat from the storage tank escapes through the solar collectors to the outside.

The air cushion normally comes pre-charged from the factory at 12 PSI. 7 COMPONENT OPERATION 38 The standard diaphragms used on expansion tanks for the traditional hydronic applications are neoprene. These are quickly destroyed by all non-freezing solar fluids currently in use. Glycols should use an EPDM or Hydrin diaphragm, and both types of oils must use one made of Hydrin. Galvanized tanks should never be used with glycols. Expansion tank sizing, combined with calculations of the appropriate system fill pressure, are very important with closed-loop systems.
