Sabre, a gas-fired, hot water residential boiler, has been designed with a brushed stainless steel, thermally insulated jacket to keep wiring and controls fully enclosed. Inside the jacket is a horizontal, cast iron section that provides maximum heat transfer, lower operating costs, and quiet operation, states the manufacturer. Models, available from 65,000 to 165,000 Btu, feature a heavy-duty, nickel-plated thermocouple; stainless steel damper; and stainless burner tubes. The electrical and water supply/return connections are located at the top of the boiler. Gas supply connections can be made from either side. Electrical terminal strips are provided.
