WESTFIELD, Mass. October 30, 2006 -- RBI has introduced the next generation of high efficiency commercial boilers and hot water heaters with the Futera Fusion™, a boiler that is IBR-listed and up to 97.5% efficient. The new boiler is designed to meet the changing demands of environmentally sensitive or green building design.
The gas fired condensing boiler with full modulation and a 3:1 turndown, is available in sizes from 500 to 2000 MBH. The Futera Fusion features advanced heat exchanger technology with solid bronze headers, a gasket-less heat exchanger and finned copper or cupronickel tubing for superb heat transfer. A metal-fiber burner allows seamless modulating turndown, ultra-low emission levels and whisper-quiet operation. In addition, the system automatically adjusts energy input to precisely match the heating load without over-firing or wasting fuel. In addition every model has a minimum full input efficiency rating of 94.5% with certain sizes achieving a rating of 97.5%. At minimum inputs, each model is capable of producing efficiencies as high as 99%.
A secondary solid stainless steel heat exchanger with condensate trap operates at the boiler’s full-flow rate and allows operation in condensing mode at all times. A state-of-the-art temperature mixing system protects the system’s primary heat exchanger.
The Futera Fusion is available as a fully packaged unit, including integral boiler pump, near boiler piping, low temperature mixing value and secondary heat exchanger. In addition, the new boiler comes with a full, 21 year, non-prorated warranty against damage from thermal shock. Its compact footprint of just 29-inches wide enables the unit to fit though standard doors, and its low maintenance design makes the boiler ideal for commercial, institutional and industrial applications.
