Shut-off ball valves with thermometers
How can I know that a heat exchanger needs service or is not working properly?
For this, the input and output temperatures are measured
The simplest, cheapest and most effective solution is the constant measurement of the temperatures at the exchanger's outlet and inlet, both from the boiler (or other heat source) side and from the installation side. That's why a thermometer is attached to the valve to give us constant control of the heat transfer efficiency. Any problem with the heat exchanger that may occur over time, such as clogging of the channels, capacity limitation, limescale inside the device, or, for example, the problem of poorly adjusted flows on the pumps - all this will sooner or later manifest itself in temperature changes on the thermometers. Thanks to this, we are able to react in time or observe the need to clean the heat exchanger or replace it within a certain period of time.
