Lochinvar Introduces New Power-Fin® High Efficiency Commercial Boiler


by Lochinvar Marketing Department | 08/24/2016

Lochinvar is introducing an addition to its industry-changing Power-Fin line, with the Power-Fin High Efficiency Commercial Boiler. This product expansion of the original line, which launched in 1986 and just celebrated its 30th anniversary, now offers an input capacity from 2.5 to 5 million BTU/Hr, more than doubling its previous capacity. The enhanced performance comes from a heat exchanger that features an innovative double row of swept fins that delivers more than twice the output of the original model.

The new Power-Fin boiler includes the Smart Touch Control™ and CON·X·US® remote connect. Smart Touch Control offers an eight-inch touchscreen with easy-to-understand infographics for easy set-up, while the CON·X·US platform allows users to monitor and manage the boiler from any internet-capable device. CON·X·US also sends alerts via text or email notifying the user of changes in the system status and allows for the modification of boiler settings from almost anywhere when connected to Wi-Fi or cat 5 Ethernet.

With thermal efficiency of 87 percent, Power-Fin boilers feature a 5:1 turndown ratio that responsively adapts the burner firing rate to match heating load requirements at any point between 20 percent and full capacity. This results in less cycling for greater efficiency and cost savings.

In addition, the newest Power-Fin model still offers a space-saving footprint that fits easily through most 36" doors. These features make it particularly well suited for large commercial and multi-family buildings that require high output and efficiency from a proven partner.
“We built the Power-Fin High Efficiency Commercial Boiler with large commercial buildings and multi-family housing projects in mind to deliver efficiency, dependability and ease of use,” said Bill Campbell, product manager. “Where practical and in specific warm weather sites, this Power-Fin series can be installed in an outdoor environment or rooftop application when mechanical room space is limited. Its optional hood and screen protector make outdoor installation fast and trouble-free.”
