Tip & How-To about Heating & Cooling
There are sometimes that an oil burner problem fix is much easier than you would think. Often overlooked is a device that will not only fix many air problems, but also help to fix a number of other issues that can come up also. All this, while helping you to get higher efficiency from your oil burner.
The device called TigerLoop is a very ingenious piece of equipment that should be installed on every oil fired appliance that is installed. The air elimination feature is just one of the benefits of this device. Another of the benefits is that oil warming feature. The oil is returned back to the bowl instead if back to the tank. This gives the oil a chance to warm before it is burnt. This warm oil will burn just a bit better than cold oil.
When a TigerLoop is installed you only have to run one pipe from the tank to the burner. This makes installation easier or makes it possible to eliminate one pipe on a two pipe system if one becomes plugged or leaks. If you have more than one appliance running from the same lines this device provides a reservoir for the oil and cushions the flows if they both happen to start at once. I have installed a TigerLoop many times when there are multiple appliances. Although it is not recommended by the manufacturer, I can can tell you that it works and works very well when using more than one burner from the same line. If your line is too small when adding a burner the addition of this unit will get you out of a jam. Because of the way this unit works you only are pulling the oil needed for combustion through the line and not all the oil that the pumps are pumping.
The unit is very easy to install. Be sure to get flexible oil hose to install it with. They make the job very simple. Most anyone can unhook the existing lines and rehook the lines for the Loop.
Now for the best reason to install this little wonder. Have you ever had to bleed your burner because you ran out of oil? Say goodbye to that! Once the TigerLoop is install it will purge your air automatically. No more running oil out a little bleeder valve and making a mess!
There are so many benefits to having this unit that you simply cannot justify not having one on your oil fired appliance.
