P/S piping question with peerless boiler

Well after doing more research i printed out a p/s drawing from burnam installation manual. http://burnham.com/pdf/Alpine%20I&O%209-09.pdf

page 43 figure 32A.

Only question i have does it matter on my boiler (peerless ECT 4 section) oil burner Can i have my supply coming out the top of the boiler and return going into the bottom of the burner?

Also how should I wire the circ. pump for the boiler loop?

I have 4 zone home baseboard heat with indirect water heater.

Not familiar with peerless, but you should have the hot coming out at the top and return going into the bottom.
The boiler circ should be controlled by the boiler electrics.
When the boiler is firing the circ should be on.
In primary secondary piping you should not have a low temp make on setpoint aquastat as they have on some boilers to keep the circ off until the boiler temp is above a certain temp.

You might want to check out this:

http://www.caleffi.us/en_US/caleffi/...dSep102508.pdf

which talks about hydraulic separation rather than strictly p/s,

and get a copy of Dan Holohan's book "Primary Secondary Piping Made Easy".

Some of the best boiler installers the country are within 30 miles of Islip.
