Coal boiler supply connection to oil boiler

PostBy: Kej21 On: Fri Feb 08, 2013 2:04 pm

I'm currently hooking a biasi coal wood boiler to my existing oil boiler. I was wondering if it matters where I tie in to the supply on my oil boiler?

Maybe these pics will help. Should I remove the plug from the t in the first photo and connect there? Or should I cut in a t in the 2nd photo near the top of the boiler?

If you don't mind a series boiler configuration. This could be quite painless !

I was stand on my head looking at the first tow photos on my desktop PC, then decided to swap to my laptop.. :lol:

You can go in and edit your post, with a right side up photo.

a series setup will run all the hot water from the wood/coal boiler through the oil boiler, both will be heated by the wood/coal.
It is the easiest way to hook it up,. If you followed a Primary/secondary loop system, then you might be a bit more efficient.

But it will be very hard to show you from the photos how to do a P;S setup.
Can you do a line drawing of your current piping and show which way you plan on plumbing in the coal boiler??

We'll try to help..

Sorry about the photos I will try to reload them right side up. I was planning on piping the 2 boilers in series for now. I was just wondering If its ok to tap into the T in my first picture for the supply?

It looks like you can tap into the tees, it's hard to see the supply and return plumbing, can you step back a take photo that includes the supply and return plumbing?
