Taco Introduces the 007e, the Successor to the 007

Taco Comfort Solutions has introduced the new 007e ECM high-efficiency circulator, offering the equivalent performance of the legendary 007 combined with high-efficiency ECM technology that uses up to 85% less electricity and requires no programming. The new 007e affirms Taco's commitment to ECM technology and their ongoing development of high-efficiency heating components.

The 007e also features the innovative BIO Barrier®, which protects the pump from contaminants, and the SureStart function, which automatically frees locked rotor conditions and self-purges air.

The 007e is ideally suited for hydronic systems zoned with circulators or zone valves. Additional features include dual electrical knock-outs, 6" stranded wire leads for easy wiring, Integral Flow Check (IFC®), and double insulation — no ground wire required. The nut-grabber feature on the flanges makes installation quick and easy. The optional two-way flange model provides universal fit to any flange position.

The 007e even alerts you to its status with convenient LED displays — orange for normal operation and white for SureStart mode. With Taco's new, 007e, hydronic installers can now enjoy high-efficiency ECM technology at a great value. Install it, forget it.

The Merlin 1000S Laboratory Utility Controller

The Merlin 1000S Laboratory Utility Controller from American Gas Safety is designed specifically for use in School and University Laboratories. This panel is to be used to carry out a gas proving test on the pipe work in order to highlight if there is a gas appliance open or a gas leak in the laboratory. The Merlin 1000S is designed to give the teacher full control over the incoming gas supply with the lockable key-switch operation. In built connectivity allows for connection to existing fire alarm and building management systems and with its easy to use system status panel and labeled PCB the Merlin 1000S is easy to install and easy to operate.

The Merlin 1000S can work in conjunction with carbon dioxide, natural gas, carbon monoxide and LPG sensors. The Merlin 1000S also has a built in “timeout” facility which will automatically shut off the gas solenoid valve at the end of a specific time period, this time period can be adjusted to 2, 5, 8 hours or can be overridden if required.

  • Can work in conjunction with a Merlin CO2 Monitor.
  • Protects people and property by testing for leaks before allowing the gas on.
  • Reliable method of pressure proving using the gas pressure transducer.
  • Key switch operation gives teacher full control.
  • Quick proving test, typically 30 seconds from switch on to ready for use.
  • Time out facility protects the building out of hours
  • Low pressure indication, continual monitoring of gas pressure.
  • Clear LED display for system indications.
  • Compatible with both BMS and fire alarm systems.
  • Straightforward to install and calibrate, the Merlin 1000S can be easily adjusted to the user’s requirements.
  • Covered by American Gas Safety LLC 3 year warranty.

The Taco 0015e3 Is The ECM Solution For Contractors

The 0015e3™ from Taco Comfort Solutions is the 3 setting ECM circulator that replaces all 3-speed hydronic circulators in its class.

It follows on the heels of the 007e ECM circulator introduced by Taco last year, and uses the same simplified ECM technology—Install it, forget it™.

The 0015e3 is the ECM solution for contractors who want that same simplified technology, but prefer the option of three easy settings – Low, Medium, and High.

The 0015e3 is ideal for hydronic systems zoned with circulators or zone valves. It provides three settings for maximum head pressure to match system requirements - LOW (5 feet), MEDIUM (10 feet), or HIGH (18 feet), with 16 gpm maximum flow. And the 0015e3 delivers the same performance, reliability and ease of installation that made the 00® Series circulators famous.

  • As reliable and easy to install as the 007e
  • High-efficiency ECM motor uses up to 85% less electricity
  • BIO Barrier® protects the pump from contaminants
  • SureStart™ automatic unblocking and air purging mode
  • Integral Flow Check (IFC®) included
  • Double insulation – no ground wire required
  • Dual electrical knockout with 6 ft. stranded wire for easy installation
  • LED indicator lights
  • Optional 2-way flange

Watts RadiantPex-AL | Cross-linked Polyethylene Tubing with Aluminum Layer

RadiantPEX-AL is a composite pipe engineered for radiant floor heating. It's proven, long lasting and maintenance-free. Installers like it because it's lightweight, durable and can be shaped to fit any jobsite. The aluminum layer protects boiler systems against corrosion and it has superior temperature and pressure ratings.

RadiantPEX-AL is manufactured to American Standard Testing Methods for composite radiant pipe and fittings (ASTM F-1281-05). Included are requirements and test methods for materials, workmanship, dimensions, environmental stress cracking, sustained hydrostatic pressure strength, thermo-cycling resistance and bend strength among other tests. RadiantPEX-AL meets or exceeds these specifications.

  • Best of Both Worlds - Strength, memory and pressure rating of aluminum with the corrosion resistance of PEX, inside and out. 
  • Bends To Your Will - Rigid enough to hold itself in place for straight, neat runs with enough flexibility to go around obstacles without additional fittings. 
  • The Strong Silent Type - Doesn't expand as much as PEX, resulting in less noise in an underfloor application.
