Harsco Corporation has expanded its P-K SONIC® line of commercial boilers to now include the SC-2000 (2,000 Mbtu/h). According to the company, the addition of the SONIC SC-2000 stainless steel boiler from its Harsco Industrial Group’s Patterson-Kelley division continues to expand the boundaries of its commitment to energy efficiency and innovative design.
Harsco Corp. announced a planned market introduction of its all-new NURO™ touchpad control platform for its Patterson-Kelley boiler product line. Developed exclusively by Harsco, the proprietary NURO™ is the latest in the company’s Patterson-Kelley line of customer-focused boiler product innovations, including the introduction last year of its energy-efficient SONIC™ stainless steel boiler and its MACH N’ROLL™ domestic hot water heating system.
Expanding its new line of SA-Series space heaters, Cambridge Engineering has added the SA350, capable of delivering 350 MBH (350,000 Btus per hour) for commercial and industrial applications. The company says the space heater was designed with the needs of building owners and managers in mind. The heaters patented Blow-Thru® Direct Gas-Fired Space Heaters are built to efficiently and safely heat commercial and industrial facilities. The flagship S-Series is documented to achieve 40% to 70% energy savings over unit heaters or traditional boiler applications, according to officials.
Bosch Thermotechnology has introduced its Heatronic 4000 commercial boiler control for producing and maintaining a set target temperature in up to four boilers. The Heatronic 4000 controls and monitors both condensing and non-condensing commercial boilers that have modulating, single-stage, two-stage, and dual fuel burners. The company claims the BacNet® and Modbus® compatible burner controller allows for a more flexible, cost-effective mixed boiler plant solution, providing better system control, energy efficiency and overall boiler performance.
Bosch Thermotechnology has expanded its Buderus brand GB162 gas condensing boiler offering. The company claims by combining condensing and cascade technologies together in one compact design provides ultra-high performance efficiencies (up to 93% AFUE) with the ability to fit multiple boiler units into tight spaces.
Schebler says its Sequence Draft Control™ (SDC) design service offers boiler and hot water heater manufacturers a complete engineered venting system. SDC is capable of maintaining the desired condensing dew point of combustion, preventing excess draft which impacts efficiency and fuel/air ratio’s – especially with high turndown modulating burners.
The new MagnaTherm from Laars is a 95% thermal efficiency modulating-condensing boiler or volume water heater available in 2, 3, and 4 million Btu/H sizes. MagnaTherm says it offers a 5:1 turndown, small footprint, slim vertical design with removable top section, a stainless steel heat exchanger, and multiple voltage options to match building service. Designed and made in the U.S.A, the MagnaTherm meets all ASME requirements and is AHRI certified.
Many engineers tend to avoid or delegate the nitty gritty of a ground source heat pump system, from soil moisture effects to building system (im) balance. It's time for designers to get in the loop.
