Description for Uponor (Wirsbo) A2670501

The Engineered Plastic (EP) Heating Manifold Assemblies feature isolation valves and balancing valves with flow meters, and come fully assembled, ready for installation. The manifolds are available in 2- through 8-loop configurations. The body ends feature R32 unions and the loop outlets have R20 male threads. The manifold mounts on a bracket (A2670006) that comes with the assembly.
For cost-effective, durable, hydronic radiant systems, Uponor now offers the Engineered Plastic (EP) Heating Manifold. This new manifold is comprised of thermoplastic, highperformance, advanced materials suitable for use under conditions of high impact, heat and moisture. Successfully installed throughout Europe for the past five years, Uponor now offers this innovative new product in the United States and Canada.
This strong, durable manifold is made of an advanced engineered plastic, which withstands corrosive environments and is unaffected by the rising cost of metal, making it an economical solution for all radiant projects.

                                            In my system, I use a three loop manifold to heat a large kitchen/dining room area, which is tiled. I had a layout diagram drawn by Pexsupply, which was very helpful. Unfortunately, when installed, the whole system didn't work. I read about such systems and their issues and found that many people are not very satisfied with theirs. I think the reason is that they don't understand how to install it.[...] I finally got hold of a flow diagram upstream of the manifold. I realized that I had omitted an important pump downstream of the mixing valve. Once I installed the pump, the system worked like a charm.

                                                  I have 2 of these in my radiant system. They're easy to hook up and I like the propex fittings & joining technique although there are some tricks to it.

                                                      However with 1500LF I would use 5 loops. You still need to do a heat loss
                                                      calculation to know if you have enough emitters(tubing).

                                                      This ultimately depends on the required flow rate and head pressure. You would likely need to break 1,500 linear feet of tubing into at least five loops and maybe more to be on the safe side.

                                                    Q:

                                                    The installation guide for the EP Heating Manifold always shows the supply manifold on the bottom and the return on the top. I presently have a metal manifold that I want to replace with an EP manifold. However, the supply is on the top and the return on the bottom. It would be much easier to replace the manifolds one for one. Is there a problem putting the supply manifold on the top and the return manifold on the bottom?

                                                      No problem. You just want the supply going into the flowmeters. The two

                                                      There should be no problem with the supply in either position. Depending on
                                                      the circumstances, It may be easier to purge the air with the supply on top.
                                                      The critical thing to look for is the
                                                      direction of flow from the circulator pump and make sure the flow is not

                                                      I have used the EP manifold in my own home. You want to make sure to use the
                                                      Uponor zone valves and especially their thermostats. Also but some
                                                      additional fitting packages for the loops to terminate to tubing(depending

                                                      manifold does not come with these parts.

                                                      You can arrange the manifolds either way. I have several of these and the only difference would be that it looks like the brackets are made to have the flow meters on the bottom manifold. The flow meters are 3.5 inches tall and the caps on the other manifold are 1.25 inches tall. You will end up with some space between the bottom manifold and the top manifold where the flow meters would be. No big deal though. Jon

Calculated length is from inlet to outlet of manifold. I would not put more than one tubing circuit on individual manifold port...seems to defeat purpose of individual ports and zone control. Buy as many manifolds or manifold port combinations as needed to compliment floor tube area per tube diameter length parameters.

                                                      The loop size limit is from the outlet on the manifold all the way back to the inlet on the manifold, so total length of all pex is included. You will need 2 of the seven or eight loop manifolds to accommodate your project size because you can not connect more than one loop to any one station on the manifold.

                                                      You can only connect one run to each port on a manifold. The 250-foot limit includes the entire length of the run from the time it leaves the manifold until it returns. With 14 total loops, you would need to use multiple manifolds.

The PEX tubing size is given (in this case: 3/8", 1/2", 5/8" & 5/16") as well as the Loop Thread (in this case: R20). So, you need the style of fitting assemblies (either compression fittings or ProPEX, there may be more) with R20 thread.

                                                      Yes. The supply should go into the side with the flow meters, and return
                                                      to the heat source from the other side. If you reverse these, the system
                                                      will work, but you will not get a reading on the meters.

                                                      The supply side is the one with the flow meters on it. That info is
                                                      discernible from the instructions but you reeeeeally have to look. It's
                                                      important that the manifolds be the right way 'round. Good luck.

                                                      The flow meters are on the supply side.

                                                      Yes, the flow meters indicate the supply side.

                                                      The supply side of the manifold includes the flow meters.

                                                      You can use this manifold. The only extra parts you would need are fittings to connect all your piping to the manifold (both the four PEX loops and the supply and return lines).

                                                      it all depends what you have now and what you trying to do.  If you have a four zone manifold with the same size unions, then yes it can work.
                                                      You have to put the 4 heads on here too to control each zone.
