Pumps. In hydronic systems that are larger than
residential size, a two pipe system with a circulating pump is
required to make the heating system responsive to load changes.
Note the following:
a) Provide a pressure gage on each side of the pump,
or a differential gage connected between pump suction and
discharge to facilitate system balancing.
b) Provide flow gages in the branches of multizone
systems to facilitate balancing.
and outlet piping to equipment to expedite future removal and
Provide strainers on the suction side of the pump.
e) Do not overestimate the pumping head on the pump.
A conservative overestimation of the head can result in the pump
delivering more than the required gpm and thereby requiring more
horsepower than estimated. There are three solutions to this:
Specify a pump that is non-overloading,
(2) Show a throttling valve in the pump discharge
to increase the head if needed, and
Remove the impeller and machine it to reduce
