Taco's LoadMatch Greatly Enhances System Efficiency


Latest News > Product News

Taco's LoadMatch is an advanced infrastructure that enables super-efficient hydronic heating and cooling while delivering better comfort, lower first costs and maintenance, and reduced energy consumption. A LoadMatch system also reduces design, start-up and commissioning time.

LoadMatch is the marriage of two old ideas wrapped around new technology. The old ideas are single pipe distribution and primary-secondary pumping. The new technology consists of the use of maintenance-free, wet rotor circulators. The primary distribution system is a single pipe loop; the secondary distribution system is a decoupled secondary piping loop for each terminal unit in the system with flow delivered by a dedicated circulator.

  A LoadMatch single pipe system replaces all the expensive and energy-consuming control valves and most balancing valves with small, low kW circulators that deliver water, on demand, to terminal units. The savings in raw material, installation costs, and energy consumption are substantial.

LoadMatch also eliminates head loss by eliminating control valves, balance valves, and some pipe. The result is lower pump head and less energy consumption to move the water.

The simplicity of LoadMatch permits the use of one size of pipe for large portions of the system. In single loop installations, there is no limit to the number of terminal units that can be installed.
