The mechanical equipment which circulate and condition the hot water are:

  • Primary and secondary heating water pumps.
  • Expansion tanks.
  • Excess pressure control loop.
  • Makeup water system.
  • Water chemical treatment.
  • Explain Boiler Components

    The boiler components are:

  • Air system heating coils.
  • Convector radiation system.
  • Heat exchangers.
  • Ceiling hung unit heaters.
  • Cabinet hot water unit heaters.
  • Fan coil units.
  • Ducted force flow units.
