When installing the aluminum radiator is very important to correctly calculate the required number of sections, as this will depend on the temperature in the room in winter.
If you do not, you will have to increase further.
Perform calculations, which should be based onnext: a ceiling height of 2.6 m for heating one square meter of living space you need two radiator sections. However, experts strongly advise to install radiators with "safety" section. It is much easier to turn down the heat than offset his lack of additional sources.
Remember: not all types of aluminum radiators can put additional sections. These include models manufactured by extrusion (extrusion). Parts therein are interconnected into a single structure by compression, so it is no longer possible to increase. In this case, the lack of sections will have to make up for the installation of an additional radiator, if the place is left for him.
Keep in mind that the principle established SectionalBimetallic radiators, made of mild steel and topped with high-quality aluminum alloy. All sections are interconnected radiator nipples and sealing design is provided by special O-rings.
Before assembly, make sure that allmade components designed specifically for this model radiator. In order to build an additional section to the radiator, first disconnect the supply tubes heating radiator and remove the end plug with the desired side of the top and bottom.
Then carefully align the additional link withsink, install washers of the heat-resistant rubber and with a special wrench, start cautiously radiator nipple screwed into an aluminum collector. capture depth should be at least four threads.
Convinced of the strength of the structure, canproceed to the next section of the dock. At the end of the assembly replace the radiator plug and connect, though with a bias, lead-pipe heating.
