Expand the end of the PEX tubing with the expansion tool provided by the PEX tube manufacturer. 2. Insert the brass fitting into the end of the expanded PEX tube. 3. Use the expansion tool to pull the brass sleeve back over the PEX tube and fitting for a tight connection. FITTING SLEEVE 1 2 3 Compression Fitting 1. Slide the locking nut and split compression ring up the tubing.
The other two values in the formula are the minutes per hour (60) and the weight (in pounds) of a gallon of water (8). 13 9600 gpm ϭ Expansion Tank An expansion tank (also called a compression tank) is required for use in all closed hydronic radiant heating systems (see Figure 1-18). Water and other fluids expand when they are heated. The expansion tank provides space to store the increased volume to prevent stress on the system. Air Separator An air separator (also called an air scoop or an air eliminator) is a device used in a closed radiant heating system to capture and remove air trapped in the water (see Figure 1-18).
7. Install adequate insulation on the reverse side and edges of the panel to prevent undesirable heat loss. 8. Install the panels opposite room areas where the greater heat loss occurs. qxd 7/3/04 3:04 AM Page 33 Quark03 Quark03:Desktop Folder:GK030-Brumbaugh- Radiant Heating 33 A B M M H P P R K H P C H Y G M K F G D F E G N G Symbols: Indicates downward grade of tubing.
