    Slip stream boiler sizing for freeze protection?

    Need help sizing a slip stream boiler that will be used to provide freeze protection in a ground-source geo loop. I know the design load and flow rate of the field, fluid will be 100% water, Midwest location and no part of the loop piping is exposed above ground. Is there a formula or rule of thumb that applies here?

    Thanks

    Condensing boiler success with IBC and ask for US rep JP A on line ibc boilers.

    share heat of absorption required at ~ 35 ew to your system (37 highest) that you can obtain BTUH from your OEM.
    ... however, much work still needs to be done.
