Our hydronic system performance choice

By abenaqui

Comments about 2"" 4900 Series Air Separator:

We utilize only Taco 4900 VorTechs on our single & multi-boiler hydronic systems. They exhibit great de-aeration performance and longevity.

Seems very well made.

Comments about 1" Bronze 4900 Series Air Separator:

Replaced a 10 year old, rust clogged, cast iron air scoop with this bronze beauty. Flushed and refilled the system with great results. This 5 loop, 3 zone system has never run so quietly. Hung a Webstone Pro-Pal ball valve with drain below the provided 1/2" FIP port with a new expansion tank, and I'm good to go.

Price was about the same as elsewhere, but I prefer Supplyhouse.com's website for the information and support they supply. Add their fast shipping and the balance tips quickly in their favor.

      A:

      Anywhere high up in your piping system that has central flow (before
      manifolds). Try to picture where air bubbles might collect in the pipe if
      they exist and place the device there.

      A:

      Ken, I recommend placing the separator at the very highest point in the whole plumbing system. I've tried it above the pumps and above the boiler & have found that small amounts of air will still get to the highest point in the whole system, thereby causing bumping when they come through the pumps.

  • 1"" 4900 Series Air Separator (Sweat)

    Q:

    Do you have to install a expansion tank below the air separator as I have a conventional type expansion tank in the system. And if so why>

      A:

      The air eliminator does not have to go directly on top of the expansion tank, but it is usually a good idea to install them close together at the "point of no pressure change."

    Q:

    Are all the 4900 series for vertical or for horizontal applications?

    Your pictures looks to be orientated incorrectly if it's for horizontal only.

      A:

      If you would like to tie it in, there is a 1/2" female thread port on the bottom of this unit for your expansion tank.
