Can i Use it for dry cleaning equipment ?

Can i Use it for dry cleaning equipment ?
Asked by: Allen
No I would not recommend it. Cast iron boilers are designed to use the same water over and over again. Thus the water becomes oxygen deficient and does not rot out the iron. Steam boilers designed to create process steam that will not be returning to the boiler as condensate are constructed differently. A Sussman Co from NY makes the types of boiler you are looking for.

How many square feet will this unit heat or how do you size a boiler for a house?

Asked by: Charlie
That is a great question. Because your question is tide to a steam boiler, I am going to answer it assuming you have steam. First, and this is with all heating systems, you need to size it based on a heat loss calculation. Basically this is a mathematical estimate of how much heat the structure will lose on the coldest hour of the coldest day of the year. Obviously the same structure if located in Alaska is going to lose more heat than if it is in Florida; due to the temperature outside. There are many programs on line that are available to do this. You enter room dimensions, location, windows, construction specifics, etc, and it will calculate how much heat you lose, thus how much you need to put back in to keep the house warm. This is true of all heating systems. However with steam you have an added variable. You not only need enough capacity in BTU's you also need enough volume of steam to fill the entire system. The unit is called "square footage of steam" Sometimes I find that if I do a heat loss I will come up with a figure for the structure but then when I add up the capacity of the radiators and pipe, I need to go large so there is enough volume of steam to reach the furthest radiators. Steam boilers have gotten smaller over the years in an effort to reduce there operating costs. So it is vert important that you chose one with both enough heating capacity, in BTU's and enough volume in Square Footage of Steam to fill the steam. I typically ask people did the boiler you are replacing adequately heat all the radiators? If it did I will start by looking at the rating plate of the current boiler. It will indicate the rating in both BTU's and Square Footage of Steam. I then use that as a base line for deciding on a replacement. Please also keep in mind when replacing a steam boiler the piping with in 5' of the boiler is part of the boiler. This is called the near boiler piping. It is critical that this piping be done in a specific way for that boiler. If it is not the boiler will not operate correctly. Meaning you can't just cut the pipes off the old boiler, slide in a new one and assume it will work. It just does not work that way. The majority of steam problems are due to incorrect near boiler piping. So look at the installation specifics, in the manual, before installing. They often appear counter intuitive but that is due to the nature of steam. If you have questions ask. Chris 978 651 3301

how quiet is this unit

Asked by: Ras
This boiler and in fact most gas steam boilers will make very little noise. If there is noise from a steam system and there can be, that is usually a result of improper installation or the system design or layout. The most common example of this is called surging; which can be a very loud banging noise caused by steam leaving the boiler coming in to contact with condensate water returning to the boiler. Steam is often described as a forgotten art; as most plumbers do not deal with it a lot and are not often trained on it. With steam the "near boiler piping" meaning the piping that is with in 5'-10' of the boiler, is actually part of the boiler. It must be piped specifically for that boiler. Often we see people cutting a pipe or two of and old steam boiler and sliding in new one. No consideration is given to the different requirements of the new versus the old. This results in a system that will not function properly, This is only one example of a potential steam problem. If you are considering changing your boiler due to noise I would suggest you find the source of the noise to you can be assured that there is not a way to fix it without changing the boiler and if you must change it, that the new one will not also be prone to noise. With steam you need to look at the entire system not just one component of it. With steam the problem may not be near the symptom. You are welcome to call me at 978 651 3301 Chris
