00 The following formula can be used to calculate the amount that water expands in a hot water system: E =C Where: ¾ (r1 † r2) … r2 E = expansion (m3) C = capacity or volume of water in system (m3) r1 = density of water before heating (kg/m3) r2 = density of water after heating (kg/m3) Example: A hot water system containing 15 m3 of water, initially at 10ƒC to be heated to 80ƒC. E = 15 ¾ (999:70 † 971„80) … 971„80 E = 0„430 m3 Hot water and heating systems must incorporate a means for accommodating expansion.

In addition to electrolytic action between the dissimilar metals, pitting corrosion caused by tiny particles of dissolved copper settling on the galvanising will produce local cells which dissolve the zinc and expose the steel to rusting. (2) Copper and galvanised steel cylinders normally incorporate an aluminium and a magnesium sacrificial anode, respectively. These are designed to deteriorate over sufficient time to allow a protective coating of lime scale to build up on the exposed surfaces.
