“Lochinvar’s Demonstration Van is traveling the Northeast to give contractors and distributors a first hand look at the products they sell and install,” said Mike Lahti, VP of Sales at Lochinvar.

The 27-foot demonstration van is equipped with two full-size KNIGHT 105,000 Btu/Hr models fully piped and vented as in a real installation, and one 285,000 Btu/Hr model cutaway showing all inner components. The KNIGHT offers a fully modulating burner with 5:1 turndown and an internal cascading sequencer as standard that allows multiple boilers to be controlled by one central boiler.

Lochinvar’s Solution boiler will also be on board. The Solution boiler features a gasketless copper finned-tube heat exchanger that provides for fast, high-efficiency heat transfer, two stage – low/high/low firing control, and it is designed to allow easy access to all major components for servicing.

The van also features a plasma display screen to demonstrate the KNIGHT’s SMART SYSTEM PC Software. Additional graphics explain thermal efficiency, heat exchanger design, proper boiler piping, and much more.
