distribution network/circuit

Hydronic (hot water) heating systems are comprised of three elements, a hot water generator (boiler) delivering through a distribution network to radiation (baseboards, radiators, heaters, etc.) that may exhibit infinite characteristics and combinations under varying climatic conditions and demands.
Let's apply Formula 1 to a conventional hydronic distribution circuit supplying 200,000 Btu/hr to the manifold station of a large floor heating system

neutral  Frank Szmulowicz, Ph. D.: The drawings show lines with circles next to them that are long runs of pipe. These are przyłącza. I think they supply/feed/distribute water (but are not manifolds). In any case, they are not points.

  -> Hard nut to crack in this context, then, Frank :/ "Connection sections", maybe?

agree  A.G.: Distribution manifold connections
