What to con­sider

Matamata Chronicle - - Winter Warmth -

En­sure the cir­cuit be­tween the wa­ter jacket and the stor­age cylin­der is open vented for safety this means that ei­ther a low pres­sure open vented cylin­der is re­quired or that an iso­lated cir­cuit sep­a­rate from the wa­ter in the cylin­der is open vented and heat is sup­plied to the wa­ter in the cylin­der by a heat ex­changer coil (this op­tion al­lows the cylin­der to be run at mains pres­sure).

Wet­backs rep­re­sent an ef­fi­cient aux­il­iary method to heat wa­ter but as a pri­mary wa­ter heat­ing source are in­ef­fi­cient.

Typ­i­cally a wet­back connection to an en­closed wood burner has an output around 10 per cent of the solid fuel burner output.

The burner and hot wa­ter cylin­der need to be in close
