Lochinvar Unveils the Intelli-Fin Commercial Gas Water Heaters & Boilers
2/7/2000
by Lochinvar

Lochinvar® Corporation is proud to announce the introduction of the Intelli-Fin™. The Intelli-Fin is the first water heater or boiler to employ LonWorks technology, which now enables total building management. Displaying leading edge technology, the Intelli-Fin is the industry’s only water heater or boiler utilizing LonWorks technology for integration into building management systems via an open network. A digital display on the front of the boiler allows access to 21+ different data points including mode of operation and total run time. Remote monitoring and control access are also available through phone lines. There are currently three versatile models ranging from 1.5 million to 2.0 million BTU’s. All models feature a wide variety of venting options, including conventional, sidewall, vertical direct, and horizontal direct venting. Each model boasts a 97 percent thermal efficiency rating, which means 97 cents out of every fuel dollar are used to create heat. And while conventional heating appliances achieve peak efficiency only while running at maximum capacity, the Intelli-Fin models consistently provide peak performance, even while operating at low outputs. All this is due to the models' infinite modulating firing system and unique copper heat exchanger. The infinite modulating firing system provides quick and accurate response to demand for heat -- as much or as little as needed -- while always maintaining the ideal gas/air ratio for ultimate efficiency. A few other unique features of the Intelli-Fin include the ability to operate at low inlet water temperatures, even as low as 70º F, and the ability to operate at low inlet gas pressures, down to 4” water column for 2 million BTU. These features make the Intelli-Fin more flexible for sensitive applications especially in areas with low gas pressure. All Intelli-Fin models also offer great flexibility and ease of installation. Because of their high efficiency, these units are compact enough to fit through standard freight elevators intact. Once inside, the space-saving designs leave more space in the mechanical room. Lochinvar Corporation is a leading manufacturer of high-efficiency water heaters and boilers, ranging in capacity from small residential units to three-million-plus BTU models. Based in Nashville, Tenn., with facilities in Detroit, Mich.; Tampa, Fla., Dallas; Texas; and Philadelphia, Pa., Lochinvar stocks equipment at all locations.
