Tip 1: How to make the battery to heat itself

in the garage, in the country or even in some structure can be carried out heating system their own hands, what will come much cheaper than if you go to the experts.And what you would not have chosen to heat most likely you will need to buy or make battery .
Guide
1
Make sure that in your apartment or in the house there is central heating as such.Perhaps you are connected to the city branch, which is located in the wall, and maybe you have set your own personal pot in his house.
2
Pick desired material from which you plan to create future battery .In this case it will be the usual water pipes and metal sheets.It is better if the aluminum or cast iron pipe.Cast iron is heavy, aluminum and lightweight but expensive metal.But aluminum conducts heat much better.
3
Prepare for the place and the welding machine.Buy the necessary electrodes.
4
Consider the size and appearance of the future batteries.Take care of the drawing.
5
Put the pipe in the order you want.Remember
that you need not only the direct construction, but also semi-circular connection.Also purchase a pre-coupling and bypass valve.Before welding pipes need to be cleaned from old paint sandpaper.
6
Proceed to the immediate weld design a snake.determine in advance the right and wrong side of the product.Weld pipe from the heating a finished battery.
7
Complete weld welding crane, which will be needed for draining hot water from the pipe at the end of the heating season.
8
Paint tubes in the color you want.Watch out for the quality of the work performed.
9
Wait until the paint has dried and set design in the allotted place for it.
10
Check the resulting structure.Do not turn on the hot water immediately, avoiding cold or warm.This will protect you from burns in the event of a leaking battery.

Tip 2: How to install pipes for heating Heating

house in our latitudes - a mandatory thing.If the boiler is called the heart of the heating system of the house, the pipes - the vessels.Very popular is the plastic pipes.If their installation does not require sophisticated equipment.Polypropylene tubes at an affordable price to thaw stable as they were not cracks occur, there is no discontinuity.They are reliable in their welding system is not subject to corrosion and have an aesthetic appearance.
How to install pipes for heating
you need
  • - pipe
  • - fittings
  • - Teflon tape
  • - tools for making connections
  • - plastic stoppers
Guide
1
Getting installing the system, check the pipes and connecting elements.Use in only those which have not been contaminated or damaged as a result of storage or transportation.The minimum temperature at which the polypropylene can be mounted tube is 5 degrees above zero.At lower temperature indicators to ensure a quality connection will be extremely difficult.
2
Also consider the ambient temperature in bending pipes without heating - it should be at least + 15 ° C.The smallest bending radius of the pipe diameter from 16 to 32 mm diameter is eight bendable pipe.Make the intersection of pipelines with a special detail, which is called a crossing.
3
to connect parts of polypropylene use polyfusion, butt welding, using elektrofitingov.When welding is formed a high-quality homogeneous joint.Use this when making a connection appropriate tools.
4
details on polypropylene thread can not be cut, so use the appropriate fittings.To seal threaded connections, use Teflon tape or other sealing thread.Metal tubing which is located behind the combined fitting, can not be connected by soldering or welding near the node to prevent the transfer of heat to it.
5
At the time of finishing block the knee wall and other items intended for connection to the system of water fittings, threaded plastic caps.
6
Select mounting method depending on the type of supports: mobile and stationary.When fixing by means of movable supports the pipeline is unable to evade the axis of the track, but can perform motion compensation (compression, expansion).The pipes are fixed on the suspension clamp, laying the pipeline insulation.When fixing by means of the fixed support (via couplings installation brackets between fittings, etc.) of the pipeline is not possible to compensate.
7
Minimum pitch, which is installed pipeline should be 0.05% toward the lowest places where it can be emptied via the drain valve or valves with drainage.Separate pipeline into sections, which, if necessary, can be closed.
8
for overlapping use ball valves or valves communicating.Before installation, be sure to check them for performance.In the areas of installation of water fittings finish Diluting pipeline using a wall or a set of wall angles.
9
After the installation of the pipeline fill it with water, and within 24 hours make a pressure test.Gradually increase the pressure in the filled tubes to test the index.The duration of the test - 60 minutes, at which time the maximum allowed pressure drop to 0.02 MPa.Where the drop is greater than this figure, locate the leak, fix the problem and then carry out a pressure test.
Note
Remember that depending on the volume of the heated space depends on the size of the battery.Too many ribs do not need to do.Suffice 8 pieces per 10 square meters.
