1123 Hartford Loop Close Nipple Missing - Heating - Steam Boiler Problems -

Image Text: Cross section > boiler water line > water hammer > steam bubbles > equalizer pipe > hot boiler water > close nipple > 2 inches to 3 inches > Hartford Loop > cool condensate water > as the cool condensate water comes out of the Hartford Loop, the steam bubbles in the equalizer condense > the collapsing steam bubbles create a vacuum that accelerates the condensate water into the back of the "T" - creating water hammer > by using a close nipple, the horizontal leg of the Hartford Loop is made as short as possible - minimizing the horizontal momentum of the water and, therefore, the water hammer
