Taco, Inc., founded in 1920, is a leading developer and supplier of hydronic-based heating and cooling components for both residential and commercial applications. Taco's core business is in circulators and pumps. Taco supplies one of the most highly regarded residential circulator lines in the HVAC industry — the Series 00 cartridge circulator series, which is the leading choice of both original equipment manufacturers and HVAC contractors nationwide. Taco products are universally known for their ruggedness, durability, and field reliability. Additional product lines include expansion tanks, valves, flow measurement devices, and heat exchangers.
Taco offers a wide variety of pumps, including water lubricated circulators, 3-piece circulators, in-line circulators, vertical in-line pumps, close coupled and frame mounted end suction pumps, horizontal split case pumps, and vertical multi-stage pumps. Taco pumps are used for the circulation of water for heat transfer in a wide range of residential and light commercial applications. They are available in a variety of materials including bronze, cast iron, and stainless steel in capacities ranging from 3 GPM to more than 5000 GPM.
Taco air and dirt separators remove air and dirt from hydronic heating or cooling systems. Highly efficient Taco air separators clear the system of free air and reduces un-dissolved sediment to save money, energy, and component wear.
Taco automatic air vents purge unwanted air from hydronic systems, allowing them to run more efficiently.
Taco boiler trim kits include everything needed for boiler installations. Each kit contains an air separator, combination boiler feed valve and backflow preventer, 4-1/2 gallon expansion tank, as well as, brass nipples and connections. Premium, Deluxe, and Standard kits are available in 1" or 1-1/4" connection sizes.
Taco expansion tanks absorb the force of thermal expansion in hydronic heating and potable domestic water systems. Taco PAX expansion tanks feature a shell design and a removable butyl bladder. CBX expansion tanks feature a seemless bladder for permanent separation of water.
Taco u-tube heat exchangers and replacement tube bundles for both steam and liquid applications available in a wide range of sizes. Steam or hot water flows through the copper heat exchangers tubes to heat water.
Taco suction diffusers feature a rear strainer pullout design. They provide maximum flow efficiency at the suction inlet of the pump while at the same time reducing space and fitting requirements. They also eliminate the need for more piping on the suction side of the pump.
Taco offers a variety of valves, such as zone and flow control valves, pressure and mixing valves, remote thermostat valve operators, and fittings. Taco zone and flow controls are designed to create and control individual zones in a hydronic heating system. The valves are available in both angle and straight patterns.
