The Tiger Loop Bio removes air from heating oil and can be fitted internally or externally.
Where should a tiger loop be installed?
The Tiger Loop is installed next to the boiler and still has a single fuel line from the fuel tank to the Tiger Loop incorporating a filter and fire stop valve. Then, from the Tiger Loop to the boiler burner there are two fuel lines. The Tiger Loop works by the oil pump in the burner creating suction to the Tiger Loop.
Do Tiger loops fail?
Within Tigerloop® itself is a security chamber with a safety float meaning that even in the event of a failure in the device, it is impossible for oil to leak from it.
How high will a tiger loop lift?
– Max lift: 3.66m (12ft) @ 30m (100ft) distance with a 10mm line. – Remove any non‑return valve in the feed line & fit bypass screw to boiler burner pump. – Max nozzle capacity: 110L/hr.
Is a Tiger Loop necessary?
The one-pipe system without a Tigerloop® is not to be recommended. This is due to the increased risk of breakdowns, as gas/air bubbles cannot be removed from the oil pump during operation. Such a system will only work as long as the oil is continuously 100% free of gas/air bubbles.
Does an oil tank need to be higher than the boiler?
Plastic Tank Installation
Raising the tank so that the bottom outlet is higher than the boiler inlet will allow gravity to feed the fuel directly to the boiler.
How do you get oil out of a tiger loop?

Does an oil furnace need a return line?
Things You’ll Need
The two-line fuel system on an oil-fired furnace consists of a supply line and a return line. The supply line delivers fuel oil from the holding tank to the fuel pump. The return line sends excess oil not used by the furnace back to the oil tank.
Should an oil tank be level?
Depending on the type of installation, plastic tanks can sit at ground level, but must be supported adequately by a proper, level base. An uneven base can cause considerable stress on the tank, leading to damage and increasing the risk of oil spillage.
Why do I have to keep bleeding my oil furnace?
Typically, the reason for bleeding the furnace has to do with fuel levels: If you let the oil completely run out, that’s when the furnace may need extra help starting up again. To prevent this problem, refill the tank before the oil gets extremely low. You’ll also keep yourself from freezing when the furnace shuts off.
What causes air in oil line?
These gas bubbles are released when there is a negative pressure (vacuum) in the suction line. This occurs in almost every installation, but above all when oil must be lifted to a higher level, drawn through long suction lines or when the suction line is too coarse for the needed oil flow.
Can you enclose an oil tank?
If you’re enclosing your tank be sure to install a door or gate. Again, adequate space around the tank is required (a minimum of 600mm). In a worst case scenario the tank may leak and access is needed to repair this immediately to avoid polluting a nearby area.
Can I put a roof over my oil tank?
Your tank should be on floor level or below ground level – it must never be stored above roof level. Remember, your tank needs to be easily accessed for deliveries and maintenance, but away from areas that are at risk of damage via impact, machinery and weather.
How far away from the house does an oil tank have to be?
Tigerloop Advanced Information
What is minimum distance between oil tank and boiler?
Siting of Oil Tanks is governed by BS5410 and Building Regulations: The minimum separation from a building is to be 1.8m and 0.76m from a boundary.
How far can the oil tank be from the boiler?
|Adjacent Structure||Distance mm||Distance inches|
|Oil boiler flues||1800mm||6′|
|Non-fire rated boundary||760mm||2′ 6”|
|Foliage and vegetation||600mm||2′|
What is the minimum distance between the oil tank and the burner?
“— tanks must not be closer than 5 ft to the burner, boiler, or furnace—” Domestic Oil Burners, Burkhart, McGraw Hill, 1969 p. 174. Other experts suggest a minimum of 7′ or 10′ separation between the closest point of the tank and boiler.
Can I move my oil boiler outside?
For many, one of the biggest attractions is the fact that it’s possible to install an oil-fired boiler outside the home. The difference between an internal oil boiler and an external oil boiler is simply that external oil boilers are installed outside.
Does an oil boiler need to be on outside wall?
Your boiler should be installed inside a building and can be fitted to any suitable wall strong enough to take its weight when full of water. The boiler’s flue must be able to pass to the outside, either through an outside wall or through the roof.
Can you put a boiler outside in a cupboard?
For example, the boiler needs to be fully accessible for servicing, maintenance or repairs. This means that a kitchen cupboard is the perfect thing to house your boiler because it will have a door that can open. As standard, most boilers will require a gap of at least 50 mm between the appliance and the cupboard.
