Entry # 64
Brief overview of the project
This is a large historic home in Portland, Ore. It still has a steam system that they use three months out of the year. This is a secondary system that provides radiant floor heat and is used during the shoulder season.
We replaced a hydronic system that had numerous issues including water quality and sediment. We decided to use a Caleffi 5495 Series SEP4 hydraulic separator to provide air, dirt and magnetic separation to alleviate the water quality issues. We also used a Caleffi 553 Series AutoFill.
The goal was to provide the customer with a quality system for heating and domestic hot water.
This job is a retrofit.
We just finsihed the install and it is 95-100 degrees in Portland all week... it's a little early to tell how the system will perform in the colder season.
