Taco Makes 3D Pump Models Available Through Autodesk Seek Web Service

Latest News > E-mail Newsletters

At Taco we are always looking for more and better ways to provide HVAC pros with the information and support they need. That's why you'll find the entire Taco Document Library available on line at along with an extensive database of FAQ's and direct access to the Taco Tech Support team.

Now we've added another avenue to conveniently access essential Taco information.

Taco recently became the first HVAC pump manufacturer to offer a full line of fully attributable 3D and 2D digital design files of its commercial pumps through the Autodesk Seek Internet-based service.

Mechanical design professionals also will be able to search and obtain these data-rich, high-quality files directly from AutoCAD and Revit desktop design applications for Building Information Modeling (BIM).

Three file formats will be available via Autodesk Seek: Revit (.rfa), AutoCAD 2D and AutoCAD 3D. These files are also available at Use the Taco CAD File Wizard to find them fast.

The Taco KS Vertical Split Coupled Inline Pump line is the first product line available through Autodesk, with others to follow shortly. Designed for optimum performance and ease of installation and maintenance, Taco KS Pumps are ideal for HVAC and industrial applications.

With the addition of Taco's product information to Autodesk Seek, HVAC system design and building construction professionals practicing the BIM process will be able to more easily select Taco pump products earlier in their design projects.

Autodesk Seek enables design professionals to search specifically for the building product design files they need in the form of 3D models, 2D drawings, visual images, and part and product specification data. The service includes access to existing content from Autodesk applications and building product manufacturers into a single, unified search experience. Read the complete Taco news release.

HVAC Pros Ask...
Question: What is the best way to pipe a 5000 Series Mixing Valve when used for radiant heating?

Pipe the system as primary/secondary with a pump circulating the primary loop and using two tees close together, with the branch of one Tee supplying the hot connection of the tempering valve and the return from the radiant loop supplying the cold connection of the valve and the branch of the other Tee. A pump, sized for the radiant loop or loops should be pumping the mixed port of the valve and supplying the radiant loops.
