What is a header? A header is a distribution point. When hot water leaves the boiler and travels through 2.5 and 2 inch pipe under the benches, it goes up to the benches and is distributed through a header. The header is one inch pipe and transfers the water to micro tubing. The micro tubes are 1/4 inch in diameter. We have over 50,000 feet of micro tubing.
Here a few pictures of a header being replaced. The process is tedious.
|This is an old header. Last year, I attempted to glue the leaking pieces. It worked OK. but its time for new.|
|Header cut out.|
|New header partially re-atttached to the micro tubes.|
