Thread: high temp flow reducer

  1. #1

    Default high temp flow reducer

    I posted this question in the solar forum, but it didn't get many eyes, so I figured I'd try again here.

    I'm looking for a flow reducer that will stand up to high temps (water from my solar array is around boiling), but all the ones I've found so far have max temp ratings of about 70 C. I need a flow reducer, as the system calls for about 2gpm, and the circulation pump at the lowest speed put out about 6 gpm (too high a flow rate, and the water doesn't reach max temp in the array).

    Can anyone suggest a source for a high temp flow reducer?

    Here is a Boiler Trim Valve that should work for your needs. http://www.yarway.com/hy-drop.asp

    Or you can go for something a bit more expensive. http://www.tycoflowcontrol-na.com/pr...rol+Valves&m=1
