Piping methodologies for distribution systems — Pt. 2

I came across a single-pipe gravity system that had its piping pitched upward from the gravity heat source, just like the two-pipe system These systems do not like the application of a circulator Even though many of these systems are still functional in delivering excellent comfort to the end users, their overall efficiencies are much less than today’s standards

In last month’s article, we looked deep into the pipes of an old two-pipe gravity circulation system. We will now continue looking at the history and advances of these wonderful mechanical systems.

In this very same neighborhood near Capitol Hill, I came across a single-pipe gravity system that had its piping pitched upward from the gravity heat source, just like the two-pipe system. However, this system utilized a special fitting called a Eureka fitting. The Eureka tee was co
