LochinvarThe Armor X2™ commercial water heater offers advanced touchscreen technology plus up to 96% thermal efficiency.

Demonstrating an ongoing commitment to research and development, Lochinvar  is bringing new innovation to the industry with the introduction of its ARMOR X2 Commercial Condensing Water Heater. The ARMOR X2 combines stainless steel heat exchanger technology with modulating/condensing combustion to deliver thermal efficiencies as high as 96%. Available in models with 1.0, 1.3, and 1.5 million Btuhr inputs, ARMOR X2 offers an efficient, advanced solution for a wide range of commercial applications.

Performance for Peace of Mind

Designed to eliminate concerns about meeting hot water demand, Armor X2 is equipped with two independent combustion systems that consist of two 316L stainless steel heat exchangers, gas valves and combustion blowers designed to work in unison.

Dual Combustion Systems = Twice the Turndown

Boasting a turndown ratio of 10:1, the Armor X2 delivers the precise amount of heat to match demand. The combustion system can fire as low as 10% of the maximum water heater input and modulate up to 100% as demand increases.

The Intelligence of Smart Touch™

The new Armor X2 condensing commercial water heater also features Lochinvar’s exclusive Smart Touch operating control.  This full-color, touchscreen control provides complete control of all Armor X2 functions, simplifying installation and operation while also offering complete access to system performance data and history. In addition, Smart Touch enables Armor X2 to communicate seamlessly in real time with building management systems by utilizing an on-board MODBUS protocol.

Another benefit of the Smart Touch operating system is its built-in cascading sequencer, which allows for the sequencing of up to eight Armor X2 water heaters.  The ability to sequence up to eight units with 10:1 turndown results in a combined system capable of operating with modulation of up to 80:1 turndown.

Freedom in Flexibility

With a space-saving footprint and seven venting options, Armor X2 offers tremendous flexibility for placement of units within the building.  It can be installed with direct-vent air intake and exhaust runs up to 100 equivalent feet using PVC, CPVC, Polypropylene or AL28-4C stainless steel vent pipe. Intake and exhaust runs can terminate horizontally through a sidewall or vertically through the roof.
