I am told that with time the cast iron boiler will have problems due to the ph of the hard water, therefore the steel boiler is recommended.

What Kind of Steel Shot Is Used In Shot Blasting Machine?


Steel Shot Blasting
Usually, the hardness of steel shot can be improved to HRC40 ~ 62. It can be used in processing hard metal. It is more widely applied in shot blasting machine because of its excellent toughness and long service life.

Cast Iron Shot Blasting
The hardness of cast iron shot is HRC58-70. Cast iron shot is too brittle to be broken easily, so the service life is short. It is mainly applied in those processing of high shot peening strength requirements.

Glass Bead Peening
The hardness of glass bead is less than the previous two steel shot, which is mainly used in processing stainless steel, titanium, aluminum, magnesium, and other situation excluding iron pollution. Also, glass bead can be used in secondary surface treatment after steel shot blasting in the purpose of removing the iron pollution and reducing the roughness of workpiece surface. http://www.jxabrasives.com/

My Bar B Chef grill grates are totally rusted. Are stainless steel grates better or should I stick with cast iron?


I prefer cast iron. Cast iron heats more evenly and retains temperature better. If they are falling apart from rust, junk them. If they just have surface rust and no holes, all you have to do is brush them with a steel brush at high heat. Wipe them off with a wet rag and then rub it with an onion to provide a teflon layer. if it is really heavy rust, spray oven cleaner on them and hose off. After use or for storage, clean them and then wipe them down with a cooking oil soaked rag. The oil will reduce rust build up.

How to clean cast iron both pots and pans


Don't..... just rinse with hot water and dry them, the blackening is otherwise known as "seasoning" and protects it from rusting, left to soak or washing with soapy water will rust the cast iron...... if this happens you need to remove as much rust as possible by scrubbing with salt and a cut (half) potato, then wiping with vegetable oil and "seasoning" in a hot oven (do this a few times, the oil will evaporate and bake-on a protective film) think of the edges of your favourite roasting pan....... well used/cared for cast iron will almost certainly look totally black.

My boiler heating is working but hot water is not coming. i want to know how to set hot water 24 hours 7 days


As I understand your question, you have a boiler with a 'summer/winter' hookup for domestic hot water.

Your boiler should run all the time, i.e. not be shut off by you. Your boiler provides hot water for baseboard heat in your home ... possibly through several 'zones' each controlled by an individual thermostat and circulator. Yours may be a steam system. If this is the case, you have radiators not radiant baseboard heaters and no circulators.

Your summer/winter hookup provides a constant supply of domestic hot water. It does this by taking cold water from your water main and passing it through a copper coil which sits inside your boiler and then to your hot water main in your home. Since the coil sits in the hot water at the top of the boiler, it is constantly being heated. This coil may be in a deteriorated condition in your case or it may be too small for your needs.

Several years ago, I did a small upgrade to my mid 1950's era American Standard boiler. The summer winter hookup in my case was mounted on a 4 inch cast iron boiler plug. The coil was 12 feet long (folded up to a package about 1 foot long). I was very afraid when the plumber came in with what amounted to a 10 foot long pipe wrench. My fear was I would have a pile of broken cast iron at the end of the day. All is well that ends well. He got the old one out and replaced it with a coil that consisted of 20 feet of copper tubing 3/4 inch in size (the folded tubing was about 20 inches long and fit nicely into the boiler). We now have all the hot water a household consisting of one guy and three gals would need in all but the extremest of times..

I think you r answer is here ... replace your summer/winter coil with a new, bigger coil.

Something else I did. My kitchen is 60 feet (pipe wise) from the boiler. It takes a long time to get hot water there. I put in a small electric hot water heater just under the kitchen. I put a timer on it so it runs for a couple hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. The hot water line from the boiler serves as the cold water input to the heater. I now enjoy the convenience of quick hot water in the kitchen with the relatively low cost of oil heated water from the boiler as a relatively small cost of electricity.

My winter settings are 160 - 200 and my summer settings are 120 - 150 which seems adequate for our needs.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com. I hope I have been of assistance to you today.

I seasoned my new stainless steel skillet in the oven now I have built up oil stuck to the sides inside the skillet. How can I remove this without damaging the stainless steel finish? HELP!


You only need to season a cast iron skillet, not stainless steel. Soak it in hot soapy water and use something like a mister clean pad to clean it.
