Lochinvar Introduces the Next Generation of Power-Fin Commercial Water Heaters and Boilers


by Lochinvar | 06/20/2008

Lochinvar® Corporation is proud to announce the expansion of the Power-Fin® line of commercial water heaters and boilers. The new models offer all the features of the original Power-Fin line, plus digital temperature control, expanded firing ranges from 50 percent to 100 percent, and more flexible venting – up to 50 feet due to a flexible two-pipe system. The new models are offered in three BTU sizes: 1.5 million, 1.7 million, and 2 million. The new Power-Fin models boast 87 percent thermal efficiency ratings, which means 87 cents out of every fuel dollar are used to create heat. And in addition to the standard fan-assisted burner operation, the new Power-Fin has expanded its firing range from 50 to 100 percent with a new modulating burner. This feature means the new Power-Fin can more accurately provide the amount of heat demanded – saving even more heating dollars. The new Power-Fin features an enhanced digital control system including 16 LED readouts. Digital temperature control, with thermostat accuracy at +/- 1º, is one of the LED readouts. All new models also offer great flexibility and ease of installation. The new models feature the standard Power-Fin venting options, including conventional, sidewall, vertical, and horizontal direct vent, and can now be vented up to 50 feet with the new flexible two-pipe system. And in addition, these units are compact enough to fit through standard 30” doorways intact. 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.
