Mixing is a key element in many hydronic heating systems.  When properly performed it:

  • improves comfort and minimizes energy consumption
  • protects low-temperature heat emitters from high-temperature heat sources such as storage tanks heated by solar collectors or wood-fired boiler systems
  • prevents sustained production of corrosive flue gas condensation when a conventional boiler is used as a heat source to a low-temperature distribution system

Over the past 20 years, mixing products have advanced into more intelligent and durable devices.  A solid understanding of how they function and how to apply them will enable maximum heating system performance.  This issue of idronics discusses a wide range of mixing options for use in both standard and specialized applications.
