Description for Taco 007-F5-7IFC

Note: Full flange-to-flange three-year warranty on all 00 Series circulators.

Taco's 007-F5-7IFC Model is a cartridge style, maintenance free, wet-rotor, in-line, single stage circulator pump. Its rugged cast iron construction makes the circulating pump a versatile and reliable unit in your HVAC system. Since the cartridge contains all of the interacting parts, circulator and IFC maintenance is made easy and you don't have to replace the entire unit. Its quiet, effective operation, unmatched reliability, unique design and functionality makes the Taco 007-F5-7IFC cartridge circulator pump among the most popular hydronic circulator pumps available in the market.

The Taco 007-F5-7IFC is engineered to simplify piping, reduce installation costs and optimize system performance when zoning with Taco 00 circulators. Its main function is to protect against reverse and gravity flow. A low pressure drop caused by the spring-loaded IFC increases flow performance vs. traditional in-line flow checks. Applications include: hydronic heating/cooling, hydro-air fan coils, radiant heating, and indirect water heaters.

I use this Circ pump for heat zone. It does the job fine. However it did not work at first. When installed and activated the pump did not pump. The pump was making sounds as if it was running, but it did not work.
I had to open the pump head up and manually spin the motor to free it up. Once I did that it works fine.
I think Taco needs to take more care in the construction of their pumps. After all if I had not known that the pump was not actually pumping it would have burned out the motor. I have talked to other installers and they have said that Taco pumps are recognized for this problem. One installer told me that he went through 5 pumps before he found that this was the problem.
I have not had this problem with other circ pumps.

Comments about 007 Cast Iron Circulator with Integral Flow Check, 1/25 HP:

Three of the four pumps worked well out of the box, however one pump had defective wiring and PexSupply sent another one promptly and even paid return shipping. Thank you PexSupply for your outstanding customer service. The pumps now seem to work very well for a low voltage pump, replaced my high horsepower pumps and expect to save the cost in electricity alone. Open the sealed boxes promptly upon arriving and check the electrical connectors to make sure they are wired the same, one wasn't and that one proved to be defective. Tug a little on the wires, if they fall out return the pump(s), loose wired pumps will not work for long.

I ordered this pump to replace another one that had about 15 minutes on it. It was a very difficult installation and I don't think that I did a very good job of getting all of the air out of the system. This one worked great right out of the box and the system is working perfectly with the calculations I made for the flow with the head dimension.

      I would suspect either some air in the system that creates a whistle as the
      impeller tries to pump it- air does not pump very well or, a bearing in the
      pump needs either lubrication or replacement. The second is more likely.

I also noticed that the water in the pipe that comes out of the Taco Cartridge Circulator for this zone is not as hot as the other zones. Does this cartridge need to be replaced?

      This could be the problem or you could have a flow restriction somewhere
      else.
      I would start by removing the return line for this zone from the manifold
      and turning on the pump
      If water shoots out, then you have a design problem. This is my guess,
      because I rarely see hydraulic separation on residential boilers.

      I am no expert, but my first thought was there wasn’t enough flow through the loop. Has it worked properly prior to this? If so, there could be a pump problem or some other blockage that is reducing flow. It COULD be the pump I suppose, but it is hard to know from the description. Are there automated valves that can be unresponsive?

      The pump only operates along its listed curve. It would only be able to circulate 4 GPM at about 7.5 feet of head pressure.

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      This is determined using the pump curve, find your head loss and follow
      over to flow. Head loss is determined by piping size and configuration.

      Answered on 11/20/2013 by Envirocon Home Restoration from Smithfield, Utah
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      You cannot set speed. Pump motor is either on or off, no controls.
      Gpm will be a affected by pipe size, distance, vertical rise, number of elbows, etc.
      You may slow the flow with a hand valve downstream ( at pump outlet) not upstream ( at inlet).
      Determining actual flow rate will be difficult.
      Good luck.

    Q:

    I'm looking at the gaskets in the picture and they are small and round O-rings. Looking at the ones on my circulator pumps they are red flat full flange style gaskets. Do the old pumps have a seating space for O rings and mine happen to have flat gaskets ...? I reuse those flat gaskets and the O rings or do I have to get new flanges too? -3 series Thsnks in advance.

      A:

      The pump has the seating for the gaskets and the other flange is normally just a flat surface for the gasket to site on.  This way the seal won't get torqued in the wrong direction causing a leak.
       
      Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

      Hi Kraig,
      The rubber squishes when heat and pressure are added, so your old ones look
      flat now but started much thicker.
      Only install the new rubber washers.

      The recess in the flanges on the pump take the flat gaskets. I would buy
      new gaskets with the pump. They tend to get hard after time. I bought 6
      pumps last year (2012) and they all worked with the flat gaskets. I also
      bought the new flanges that have built in valves. This makes a pump change
      easier.

      The "O" ring grooved flanges (must be the same face to face) can ONLY use O

      A:

      The circulator in the picture can be used with the smaller round o-rings or full faced gaskets like the ones you have, however whenever you replace a pump it is wise to use new gaskets of either type. Either way you should clean all of the old gaskets off your existing flanges. Clean the flanges down to the metal removing all of the old gasket material. Then either put on new full faced gaskets or use the round ones that come in the box with the new circulator. The round ones fit into grooves on both sides of the new circulator.

      A:

      It ultimately depends on the required flow rates and the head pressure that needs to be overcome. You can calculate these figures by using the formulas in Taco's Circulator Selection Guide at the link below. A 0015 circulator may be a safer choice for this application.

      Answered on 11/1/2013 by PexSupply Staff from NY
    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      This might work, but the flow rates will increase the temp drop somewhat. You didn't specify much beyond the 8 - 300' loops. The maximum BTU delivery using water with a 40 degree temp drop over the loops would be 30,000 - 40,000 BTU. You may want to go slightly larger. With multiple, or even all loops open you may wish to deliver more heat than that. I'm using a 1/25th HP on each of three loops to three air handlers. The air handler heat exchangers have larger cross sectional area and much less length so I can do over 60,000 BTU to each simultaneously (3/4" supply lines and lots of short pipes in parallel compared to a single 300' 1/2" line). How large is your boiler and what is the estimated demand? Most well insulated homes around 3,000 sq ft can get by with about 70,000 - 80,000 BTU peak.

      Off the top of my head, no way! I have a pump covering each loop, using 3/4” PEX. I had one for one loop covering about 900 sqft and it just didn’t seem like it was working well at all. My 2nd loop is about 400 sqft and it seems to handle that well enough though. I replaced the larger loop with a 009 1/8 HP one which is probably a bit much but handles the job well. If I had to do it over I would have chosen a pump that I could dial in. It has been a few years and I can’t remember the math I used to figure out things. Give your local HVAC guy a call and ask them what they would do. Hope that helps!

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Let me see-
      Using 1/2" PEX in eight 300' loops. I would figure that you are using a header with eight outlets and, of course another with eight inlets. This header would probably be an 1-1/4 pipe size with a pump requirement of somewhere around 1/2 HP to push that much fluid. In my system I used a dedicated circulator for each loop with a control panel accepting the thermostat wiring controlling each pump circuit. You don't HAVE to use separate circulatory it just makes it oh so much easier when there is a problem. Also with just one pump all loops would operate at the same time, so you wouldn't be able to regulate zones independently unless you used zone valves which are miniature motorized valves which work with aforementioned controller. Nothing but trouble- use multiple circulators and be happy.

      A:

      You are not overcoming static head in a closed loop - there is an equal weight of water pushing down at the same time the pump is pushing up - you are overcoming friction head. At low flow rates and with normal sized piping, it is probably fine. I have a two story with one taco pump in the basement (so same height differential) and there is adequate flow on each floor. With a dedicated pump for each floor you'll be putting even more energy into each floor's loop.

      I use this pump in my basement with a single story home and I have had no problems.  However, I'm not sure how it would perform 2 stories higher than the pump itself.  I'm sure it would greatly depend on the diameter of the line to be used and the linear footage of line to be supplied. 
       
      I would probably look at the specs on the 009 taco pump.  I use this pump to supply 3/4" tube 100ft from my boiler to my water heater and manifolds in the house.  This pump moves qiute a bit more water and pressure enough that you can hear it going through the lines.

      A:

      In general, sealed, deaerated circuits need less pressure head than the actual vertical elevation of the system. The system is fed on the inlet side by the pressure head of the column of water there; i.e. the inlet pump pressure is equivalent to the height of the closed circuit column. The only pumping resistance is the friction of the turbulent water flow. If you took the pump out of the closed circuit and attempted to pump a column of water on the outlet without that same column on the inlet side, it would be limited by the stated pressure head for that output. It'll work, but flow may be limited by the lengthier circuit with more fittings.
      Make certain that you have completely deaerated the system before trying to use it!

      This circulator is rated up to 8.5 feet of head, but this is only at near-zero flow rates. Also keep in mind that head pressure is not the same thing as vertical rise in a closed-loop system. This pump would probably be able to handle one floor in a typical house, but the answer ultimately depends on the flow requirements and head pressure in the zones.

      A:

      Yes, you can certainly use this pump. It is available with three flange sizes. The choice should be based on the flow rate and head generated. What flow rate do you need to achieve? How long of a pipe run with how many fittings that restrict flow? How many vertical feet of rise in the system? These are very low powered low pressure pumps designed to recirculate in low resistance loops without much vertical rise. They were made for recircing things like hot water for air handlers, radiant floor heating or baseboard heating.
      Hope that helps.

      Hi , yes you can use this pump , .The flanges are designed to be interchangable for 3/4 -1 -11/4 inch connections just get a flange for the size pipe you need to connect to. they come in threaded or soldered type , make sure you use a gasket between flange and head..Dont Overtighten but make sure the bolts are more then snug . Good Luck ..

      A:

      depends on what you are trying to do.
      the TACO 007 is a fairly small circulating pump, with, as you have stated, a 3/4" flange. if you can find a 1" flange, you can tie into a 1" line, but your velocity through the 1" line will be slower.
      the pump itself will put out a given flow against a given head ( this is your pump curve ), there will be less friction loss through a 1" line than a 3/4" line, which means that by using a 1" line you may have less head loss and can pump more gallons per minute.
      if all you want to do is circulate water through your 1" pipe, you should be able to do this. look at the different flanges availible for this pump, and you should have have several availible.
      hope this helps.

    Q:

    If the 007-IFC is installed with the flow direction vertically downward (3/4" copper), is it possible for air to accumulate downstream of the pump ? If so, how would this be vented?

      I have never experienced that. That is not to say it can't happen, but with
      good system design it would not be an issue.

      John,
      It is always possible for air to accumulate. The subject is very broad, but
      I use Caleffi products and I use their website to train myself and my
      employees. Here is an issue of their trade mag for air and dirt elimination.

      It is possible to get air in the system, but that does not mean it has to do with the direction of the flow. An air-scoop that has a vent preinstalled in it is the best way to purge air from the system. Follow the manufacturers instructions on placement.

      A:

      I found you can always get air pockets in a loop no matter which way the pump flows. What I do to get air out of a closed loop is install a ball valve on both sides of the pump followed by a boiler drain (a tee with a drain in the middle. The drains are installed after the ball valves. In other words you have the pump flange, ball valve and drain. With the pump off, and ball valves closed hook up a washing machine to one of the boiler drains. Hook up a garden hose to the washing machine hose. Hook up a hose to the second drain and put the end of the hose into a 5 gallon bucket. Turn on the garden hose and open the drain line going to the bucket. When you see no more air pockets coming out of the drain line the loop is free of air. Close the drains and remove the hoses. You can now open the shut off valves and turn on the pump. The system should be air free.

      John S.<
      on low flow applications, you probably can accumulate air downstream of the pump, but there are several ways around this.
      1) if this on a closed circuit ( heating for instance) , i always recirculate water though the system and into a bucket, and then pump out of hte bucket with a sump pump into a hose bib mounted in the system. the added high flow rate, for say, 5 hours, makes sure you have all the air out of the system.( it also allows you to add glycol to the system) , i also install a Taco 'air scoop' with an automatic air vent at a high point in the system, and this usually removes any small bubbles that may come in with any 'make up water' you may add to get pressure int eh system.( i run my heating system at 15-20 psi when hot) if you do this, make sure you run the flow through all the individual control circuits one at a time first, then open them all and run them. when the flow from the system drain into the bucket is clean and clear of bubbles, you are set to go.
      2) if this pump has an integral plastic backflow preventer on the downstream side (white thingy,can be grabbed with a needle nose pliers), this can easily be removed. this will allow air to move back through the pump when it is turned off, and allows it to accumulate at a high point. if you have a closed circuit heating system, you probably want to remove this anyway, once you get the air out of the system ( see above) you may not need it.
      hope this helps,

      I pump downward from my wood boiler. Inside the house, where my zone pumps are set up, I have a vertical pipe that goes higher than any of my other pex, copper won't matter. On top of the vertical, I have an automatic air bleeder. When I first turned on the system it hissed and sputtered letting the air out but I've never heard it since. I don't recall the brand or technical name but a google search for automatic air bleeder would get you part way there.

      An air eliminator can generally prevent air from accumulating in the system, but if this does occur you may need to bleed the system to remove the air.

      I have 3 of these functioning normally in a radiant floor heating system x 1 year. I have never put a temp gauge on them but they get quite hot - intolerable to touch. The pump is lubricated by the fluid running through it so the temp of the fluid would be the minimum temp I would suspect.

      The pump motar housing can get very hot. The pumps are rated for water temperatures over 200 degrees.
      Your boiler will typically operate between 140 and 180 degrees depending on the type of system you have and if you an outside air temperature sensor. If you have an outside air sensor, then you boiler wayer temp will be lower as it gets warmer outside. This save you money as you use less fuel.
