pumps per radiator[s]

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
curious as to how many triple+ radiators a single MCP350/355/655 can handle before you would need multiple pumps if at all? talking about a single loop here.
thx

# of blocks is your issue. The radiators flow as easily as the tubing really.

Depends on your pump and rads really, but you can usually have a few of them in a loop before they become a problem; rads have relatively low restriction as others have mentioned.

Have a look at Martin's Pump and Rad optimizer for a good estimation tool.

It also depends on the type of pump. Some pumps have low head pressure meaning they can't handle a lot of blocks... if you have this type of pump, you'd want to double up as you add more blocks.
