tekmar now offers 2-zone pumps, 3-zone pumps, 3-zone valves, and 5-zone valves. The newly added switching relays and zone valve controls are compatible with all low-voltage thermostats and offer a variety of benefits for homeowners. These include unlimited expansion; exercising, which prevents pumps from seizing during the summer; zone priority; and priority override to protect homes from freezing over the winter months.

The switching relays and zone valve controls also send out a RoomResponse™ signal to automatically adjust boiler temperatures to improve comfort, conserve energy and save money.

Spirotherm introduces Spirocombi Magnet for superior air elimination and protection of system components.

Spirotherm Spirocombi MagnetSpirotherm, the leading manufacturer of coalescing-type air and dirt separators, introduces a new combination air and dirt separator that includes magnets and a universal connection. Building on the legacy of the reliable Spirovent air eliminator, the Spirocombi Magnet delivers the same air separation efficiency and adds fast and effective separation of ferrous and non-ferrous debris.

Powerful magnets located on the exterior of the housing surround the flow-path of the system water to efficiently capture ferrous material. By sliding the magnet jacket down, the collected debris can be flushed from the unit without having to isolate or open the unit.

The Spirocombi Magnet includes a rotating universal connection that allows installation in horizontal or vertical piping, accommodating both traditional and wall-mount boiler installations. Sizes 3⁄4”, 1”, 11⁄4”, 11⁄2” and 2” are available with threaded, sweat and press fit connections.

With a design that combines air elimination and dirt separation in a single unit, installation is simplified while protecting system equipment from corrosion and ferrous material. Constructed from quality materials, the Spirocombi Magnet is backed by a 20-year limited warranty.

Valve makes industrial maintenance programs faster and more efficient.

Viega LLC is proud to announce that 3-Piece Ball Valves are now available for its MegaPress® carbon and stainless steel pipe pressing systems.

The newest component of Viega’s MegaPress system is approved for all MegaPress applications, excluding natural gas. It’s available in 1⁄2”, 3⁄4”, 1”, 11⁄4”, 11⁄2” and 2” sizes.

It is available in multiple materials for specific applications. The carbon steel valve is available with EPDM and FKM sealing elements. The 304 stainless steel valve has an FKM sealing element, while the 316 stainless steel valve has an EPDM sealing element. Repair kits and replacement handles also are available.

The valves will make industrial maintenance and installation programs faster and more efficient by minimizing downtime and keeping projects on schedule, said Paige Riddle, product manager, valves. “MegaPress is all about allowing end users to operate more productively; the new 3-Piece Ball Valves add one more valuable component to the system,” she said.

As with other MegaPress fittings, secure connections with the ball valves can be made in seven seconds or less with no adapters. Pressing technology doesn’t require fire or flame, so there’s no need for burn permits or fire watch. It also
eliminates the danger of contamination caused by thread cutting oil or filings.

The valves are equipped with Viega’s patented Smart Connect® technology, which makes it easy to identify unpressed
connections.

Taco Comfort Solutions’ ® new 4900 Series magnetic dirt separator provides dual-action dirt separation for closed loop hydronic heating systems.

Both hydronic component lifecycle and efficiency are improved with the use of an effective dirt separation system. Taco’s 4900 Series magnetic dirt separator utilizes a powerful, 13,000 gauss magnet in addition to patented PALL ring technology.

The 4900 Series magnetic dirt separator efficiently separates microscopic particles including dirt and magnetite from hydronic fluid with minimal pressure loss. The unit is easily blown down (cleaned) by opening a valve at the bottom of the vessel.

Available sizes range from ¾” to 2” NPT and from ¾” to 1-1/2” sweat. The unit’s maximum operating temperature is 250°F and maximum pressure is 145 PSI.
