Lochinvar® Introduces Floor-Standing KNIGHT® Fire Tube Boilers


by Lochinvar Marketing Department | 01/06/2016

Lochinvar is introducing a new line of floor-standing KNIGHT® Fire Tube Residential Boilers. The advanced KHN KNIGHT Boiler features a stainless steel fire-tube heat exchanger and offers AFUE of 95 percent across all models, which range from 55,000 to 285,000 Btu/hr. With up to 10:1 turndown, the firing rate modulates based on demand to eliminate on/off cycling and optimize efficiency and heating comfort.

The KHN KNIGHT Boiler – like all other KNIGHT models – is equipped with the SMART SYSTEM™ control and offers Lochinvar’s exclusive CON•X•US® remote connectivity option that allows the contractor or homeowner to monitor and manage the boiler from an internet-capable device. The CON•X•US platform sends alerts via text or email notifying the user of changes in system status and allows for the modification of boiler settings from almost anywhere. 

In addition, the new KNIGHT Boiler’s footprint, as well as the placement of connections and vents, is strategically designed to easily allow for drop-in replacement of old, inefficient boilers.

“We designed the KHN KNIGHT Boiler to deliver high-efficiency and advanced technology for a wide range of applications, including energy retrofit installations where cast iron boilers were previously installed,” said Dan Rettig, product manager. “The new KHN models, which are significantly lighter and more compact than cast iron boilers, streamline the replacement process by simplifying connections and reducing the need for re-piping.”
