# What pressure should be in an expansion vessel?

## What pressure should be in an expansion vessel?

1 bar
Summary. Expansion vessels, also known as expansion tanks, keep the pressure in a combi boiler stable while water heats and cools. They are typically located inside the boiler casing. The typical pressure a boiler system should be set to is 1 bar.

How do you calculate expansion vessel?

Expansion volume The expansion volume is calculated as follows: expansion volume = water capacity x increase in volume at average heating temperature. Example: heating temperature 90/70 °C (average 80 °C) = 2.89%. Safety factor We recommend including a margin of 25% when calculating the expansion volume.

What is meant by pressure vessel?

Pressure Vessels are containers which are designed to hold liquids, vapors, or gases at high pressures, usually above 15 psig. Examples of common pressure vessels used in the petroleum refining and chemical processing industries include, but are not limited to, storage tanks, boilers, and heat exchangers.

### Can a bad expansion tank cause high water pressure?

It’s also possible that you have a faulty expansion tank on your water heater. At the end of the day, the cause of high water pressure is usually something outside of your control.

When did my Worcester 28cdi start losing pressure?

## Do you need to check expansion vessel pressure?

You may also need to check your expansion vessel pressure – this is the drum inside your boiler which is meant to keep your system pressure steady as it heats and cools. But – bleed rads, and check discharge pipe first. FatHands likes this. Hi GC.
