Taco Multi coil


Recommended Posts

Check out this beauty and the size of the TPR.

Anyway, the water heater cold water supply is connected to a pipe that exits the Taco multi coil valve? Has anyone ever seen this before?

I've found very similar looking devices on commercial and some large residential boilers. They were heat exchangers for live steam to pre-heat the boiler feed water.

I've inspected several large industrial steam boilers used for process equipment that have separate boilers to pre-heat the feed water.

Bill,

Looking at the photos, what do you think the material is that they wrapped the boiler with (I'm supposed to get the paperwork from the owner).

The reason I'm asking is they also wrapped the 'vent connector' with it.

Summit, near the hospital.

12 bedrooms (including the 3 servants bedrooms) 7 baths, 11 fireplaces.

Clay tile roof.

This beauty must have been the toast of the town way back when. The realtor said she has the listing from when it was sold back in 1950 (stated 'recent total renovation').

Pre-listing inspection.

Does it have the texture of paper or cloth?

Am I the only one that thought "crematorium" when seeing that thing?

No evidence of body parts inside.
