how to pipe a wood boiler

I have just purchased a wood stove with a hot water coil. The stove is large and will accept wood up 3 feet long. The coil is 1/2 stainless steel tubing and appears to be about 50 feet long. I am installing it in my new house which is currently heated with just a wood stove. I have already ran all my radiant loops and am just looking for a little help making the final connections. I know that wood is hard to regulate the tepature, so I am runnuing a loop from the stove to a storage tank that i will then feed my zones from. I am wondering if anyone has a diagram of how to pipe it all together. I can handle the basics but could use help with where to put the extrol tank and relief valves, I want to make this as safe as possible. Thank you in advance for your help.

Doesn't the installation manual have piping diagrams ?

What's the make/model of the boiler ?

make and model

The make is Energen, I have no idea of the model and I did not get an owners manuel. I got it used from someone they had it a few years but never used it.

First thing is to get copies of the installation material for the boiler. I'm not familiar with them ... if they're still in bizz, they may have a website ... might be able to download the manual in PDF ... or call / write ... you should install according to manufacturers I & O manual .

Yeah, I google it too ... there are companies called Energen, and one seems to have something to do with boilers ... but it doesn't appear to be the right folks ... maybe they outta bidness ?

Take a look at other wood boiler manufacturers then ... study their install diagrams ... for the most part they are all pretty similar ...
