Low Water Cut-Offs by Taco

The Taco Low Water Cutoff (LWCO) provides accurate and dependable protection for all types of boilers, from small residential hot water boilers to large industrial steam units. The LWCO is a probe-style, microprocessor-based control that detects the fluid level in hot water and steam boilers and reacts when the level falls below the minimum safe operating level specified by the boiler manufacturer.

The Taco LWCO can act as either the primary or secondary low water cutoff on low-pressure steam boilers, the primary limit control on hot water boilers or to protect pumps from running dry in condensate receiver tank applications. The LWCO can also activate alarm systems or automatic water feeders.

Features include:
  • Patented Adjustable Probe Sensitivity
  • External LEDs and Simplified Wiring for Easy Installation and Testing
  • Automatic or Manual Reset Mode
  • Available in 24 VAC or 120 VAC
  • Standard On-Board (NEMA 1) or Remote (NEMA 4) Probe
  • 1/2” or 3/4” NPT Connection
  • LT Models Include External Test Button, Adjustable Delay On Break (DOB) and Delay or Make (DOM) Features

The Taco LTR Series Low Water Cutoff (LTR) is a microprocessor-based low water cutoff for detecting the presence of water in a boiler that provides reliable protection for residential and light commercial hot water boilers. It uses advanced signal processing to identify when the probe signal levels have decreased due to possible fouling. Thanks to these technologies, the LTR functions longer without requiring annual probe cleaning and maintenance and it functions normally under non-ideal installation conditions. A convenient, all-in-one design containing test button, plug n' play wiring harness and instant feedback maintenance LED lights.

Features Include:
  • One-piece sealed design for use with residential hot water boilers.
  • Test button to quickly verify correct installation and wiring.
  • Extended probe impedance sensitivity to 40K Ohms.
  • LED indicator lights: Green-to-red to indicate when boiler water level is low; amber LED to indicate when probe needs cleaning.
  • 24 VAC wiring harness.
  • Automatic reset when water level returns to safe level.
  • Compatible with gas-fired and oil-fired residential boilers.
  • Ideal for use with smaller high efficiency boilers

Insul-Barrier: A Better Way To Insulate

Insul-Barrier is designed as a crawl space foundation insulation. An un-insulated crawl space foundation can result in heat loss from the living space above. Insul-Barrier reduces heating requirements and prevents water vapor condensation problems by creating a thermal break between the crawl space interior and the earth around the foundation. Because Insul-Barrier uses patented reflective technology, it is able to control all modes of heat transfer: convection, conduction and radiation. By controlling these three modes of heat transfer, Insul-Barrier greatly reduces the heat loss generated from a cold, damp crawl space.

Vapor Barrier
Insul-Barrier is a high performance crawl space vapor barrier designed to prevent moisture migration from the soil into the crawl space. Insul-Barrier helps guard against:
  • Mold
  • Mildew
  • Allergens
  • Fungus
  • Radon, gas
  • Methane gas
  • Heat loss due to damp insulation
  • Wood rot
  • Overall degradation of the crawl space
The bright white surface of Insul-Barrier gives the crawl space a clean and refreshing look while providing the owner with a Class A vapor barrier.
